Yesterday, I spent the day working on a PHP program (I know), but I was pleasantly surprised how easily I was able to get the program done and it works pretty fast. When would I use PHP and when would I use Perl? I also know Java, but I'm not working on a B2B site.
The lack of sleep is eating away at me - I feel really out of it today. I'm going to bed late lately... need to get my 8 hours of sleep.
The exciting news is that for my Christmas present to my wife, I am taking her on a New Years Eve trip to Austin, TX. We leave tomorrow afternoon and check into the best hotel in Austin (the Driskill), which is right on 6th Street, which is where the festivities for New Years Eve happens. So some R&R and lettin' loose is called for... We return the afternoon of the 1st, and I'm back @ work on the 2nd. We used to live in Austin for a short while, after I graduated from college and we're looking forward to eating & drinking @ our fav. hangouts. If it weren't for my cool job & new house being built, I might be tempted to move back...

My boss just walked in and said he will make sure my plate is full when I return - I've been working on steam lately, in terms of work to do. I just found out that the PHP project I did yesterday replaced something that was already working, so my work was for naught (well, it did replace an old flakey system, I might add).
Tonight, I'm tackling Pork Roast! Got a chunk o' Pork (boneless sirloin roast), some broccoli and sweet potatoes and will be cooking 'em up for the relatives.
