Friday Five

Time for another Friday Five.
1. When was the last time you laughed?
This morning
2. Who was the last person you had an argument with?
It was probably my wife.
3. Who was the last person you emailed?
My brother, earlier this morning.
4. When was the last time you bathed?
Had a shower yesterday. Bath? I think it’s been a while.
5. What was the last thing you ate?
A slice of raspberry chocolate cake. It was the top of my wedding cake from a couple of years ago.

Time off

MCAT’s over, and now the wife is relaxing before school starts on the 26th. Taking the rest of the week off and heading off to her parents’ place to relax and veg out. They have a nice relatively secluded compound where we usually go at least once a month or so, depending on her schedule. The downside is that we usually end up doing all the cooking for everyone while we’re there. But it’s all right. We use them as guinea pigs for recipes we want to try out 🙂

MCAT status

First half of the MCAT is over, and my wife says she feels better about the verbal section this time than she did last time. So if she can pull off the same scores for the rest of the test that she got last time, I think she’ll be a shoe-in for med school.
Here are a couple of neat NOAA satellite photos. Before the big blackout a couple of days ago, and after. It’s neat to see just how much of that area went dark.


At this very moment, my wife, along with several dozen other prospective med students are taking the MCAT. This will be her second attempt at the test. She’s nervous about it, but hopefully she’ll do well this time around.
On another note, I’ve been watching Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. It’s been very interesting watching and learning about the different sharks. What I find most entertaining though are the short Shark Week promo clips they play before going on commercial break. They show assorted people standing nervously around various bodies of water (swimming pools, inflatable kiddie pools, etc). I think they’re hilarious.

Another Friday Five

1. How much time do you spend online each day?
My computer at work is always online. I’d say anywhere from 4-6 hours, split between home and work.
2. What is your browser homepage set to?
3. Do you use any instant messaging programs? If so, which one(s)?
4. Where was your first webpage located?
5. How long have you had your current website?
Current website is I’ve had it for about 7 years now I think.
