I know, I know, I’ve been neglecting the blog horribly over the past week. Blame Python. More accurately, blame three days of intense Python-learning for a class. I feel pretty darn nerdy, though, cramming so much Python into my brain in so short a time! And I just finished and submitted the final exam – while my brain is reeling from cramming so much code into it, I do feel rather accomplished. Plus, Python shares similar syntax to PHP, which I’ve been learning on my own,
So, in lieu of a rather involved post, I’m simply going to share some pictures from the past couple of days – expect a more exciting post when I get my brain back later this week!
On Memorial Day, in an attempt to recover from the insanity that was three straight days of Python, Bryan and I headed off to Fry’s Electronics up near Indianapolis. We had a lot of fun perusing the books, especially when we found gems like these….
Windows ME is 13 years old – I have no idea why they’re even selling this anymore, unless there are people out there who collect books about old operating systems…
… and if there are people like that, I’m quite sure they’d jump on this book. I think my mom actually still has a copy of this, somewhere, along with her copy of the Encyclopedia Britannica on CD-ROM…
Also, this next book really does exist. And yes, I bought it.
Why not learn about databases from a manga? 😀
Next, we made a trip over to Toys R Us! Which is always fun for both of us – I go look at the My Little Ponies, Bryan gravitates towards the Legos, we look at Nerf guns that might be steampunkable… This trip was especially fruitful – take a look at what I found!
That’s right, a 20-inch tall Fluttershy! I’m going back on my next two paydays to get the giant Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle, should they be there in two weeks… I figured I’d snatch up Fluttershy, as she proves hard to find in general when it comes to pony plushies around here.
I also may have spent a chunk of my weekend playing my most favorite game in the world – Super Mario RPG. A dear friend of mine, Michael, surprised me with a copy while I was sick with some sinus nastiness last week. I almost died, haha. I’ve been looking for this game for years!
And one last picture – this is what happens when you let two overgrown nerds buy groceries for themselves:
That’s all I’ve got for everyone today – stay tuned for later this week, where I post about something I’ve been working on for quite some time!
