Dose of Happiness: Four Day Weekend!

Woooop! Today marks the first day of my four day weekend! Sleeping in, editing, and chillin'.

So, what's the occasion? Well, really it's nothing special. During the day, I'm a code-slinger: One of the geeks that helps make a web page do its thang.

Sounds simple, right?

Well, sometimes it is and sometimes it isn't. The last couple of months, have been one of those isn't times. My job is awesome. I love the people and the work is always interesting, but there are times it's mentally exhausting to get the right words and information to show up on the screen.

So, after our last release, I scheduled a couple of days off. And what better days than Thursday and Friday?

Both of those days, I'm tagging along with Erin as she run errands and does the usual day-to-day. The only difference is that I get to do them with her.


Saturday, we are attending a book festival.


Sunday afternoon we have a date at our favorite Mexican restaurant.

Can anyone say:

So, despite the stress of the last couple of months, we got our code out and our customers satisfied, and I get some great time with my bride.

This is Deek, delivering a little dose of happiness.

Adventure on, my friends!

Dose of Happiness: Back in Jail...Twitter Jail!

So, I'm back in Twitter jail. Well, really this is the like being sent to the corner. Basically, when I reply to someone's tweet, like a tweet, or just tweet, no one can see it unless they look at my feed. It's something that happens to my account on a regular basis and I think it's because Twitter thinks I'm spamming.

What the what?

Yep. Last time it happened, I was tweeting a blog post. This time it happened I was also tweeting about blog post.

But guess what? I'm grateful it happened!

Again...what the what?

Yep. Because this time I was tweeting about Erin's new book, The Transhuman Project!

Follow me here: I'm in jail...or in the corner or whatever...because Erin has a great new SciFi book out and I'm so proud of her, I'm tweeting her blog tour posts. And the Twitter Skynet does not like it.

But the world still gets an awesome new book by my favorite author of all time, so, yep, totally winning!

This is Deek delivering a little dose of happiness.

Adventure on my friends!
