Watch for me on Cops Grand Rapids
This morning I went to get this year's stash of Halloween candy--it's 75% off at Meijer's today--and spent some time looking around the store. Yep, the Christmas music was playing already. I stopped by the hardware section and picked up some nails I need to fix one of the windows.
As I was waiting in the checkout, I realized what I had: 10 bags of candy bars, followed by a box of small white nails. I paid by check. So, did the cashier report me to the cops or not? If you don't hear from me again for 3-5 years, you'll know the answer.

New month, new job
Well, I guess the month is technically old by now. But the job is new. My previous job (a contract deal) ended at the end of September. Thanks to a coworker who pointed out http://jobs.perl.org, 3 weeks ago I started a nice telecommuting job with a company in Maryland called Cargotel. It's a nice small company with a lot of work to do. Very fun, and it's good to be working at home again a year after BT decided to get rid of a bunch of us.
