I do not generally enjoy passive information delivery like television and cinema, so getting me to "see things" tends to be an arduous ordeal. The list of movies and shows I'm told I "need to watch" is abounding, especially considering the rate of completion is around 4 movies per year. This quarter's movie was Troll Hunter, which was quite satisfying.
Interviewing candidates at work for a web dev position. Boss wants a super experienced person but honestly I'd rather take a junior candidate under my wing. If I had my druthers, I would overlook work experience and hire people on their knowledge of Pokemon.
I like reading comics
Today I walked down to Wayward to get some reading done. I read Jon Ascher's comic Neal, caught up with Everyday Abnormal and started Blacklist Studio's R13 and Smith and Lantry's To The Power Against.

I write code for a living. When you write code, you must test it.
I either love of hate testing my code.
When testing is going well it's something like this:
Code: "Pardon me, sir, I believe I have found a fault in your code at line 172 character 4 where you did not update the index incrementation for the new routine. I believe you merely need to change "alpha.index" to "alpha_rownum.index" to be in line with the updated semantics."
Me: "Jolly good, test. You are a gentleman with a marvelous eye for detail."
...and we drink tea wearing top hats.
That's me today. I'm happy and getting stuff fixed. It's awesome.
When testing is going bad, it's something like this:
Programming is fun.
Test: "YOU CHANGED THE NAME OF THIS BUTTON AND NOW I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS POOP DOUBLEPOOP BUTTS DUMB OMGWTF FREAKING OUT WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"
Me: "Go home, test. You're drunk."
