It's from the Perl Angst article mentioned elsewhere (yes, I'm currently too lazy to link.)
That's not why I'm nervous, though. I'm nervous because someone I called about a week ago concerning a job at perl jobs called me back.
I went to the Bangor State Fair tonight. (No, Bangor's not a state, and I'm pretty sure that the state it's in (Maine) has more than one state fair.) It sprinkled a little rain, it showed me a bunch of rides I loved when I was a foot shorter, it tipped me off to the existence of corn dogs one foot long. (Oh, happiness.) They had pretty good blooming onions, too, so I was mostly happy with the food. Better than I expected. I didn't go on any rides or play any games, because, well...ech, I was pinin' all day long for code.
This morning, I looked over CGI::Application::Generator's documentation and some interesting ideas have come to mind. I really want to do something interesting with it, but instead I'll do the thing I believe I'm capable of. The thing that bugs me about Slashdot is, I'm very sure, the same thing that bugs everyone about it.
"That's not how I would have done it!"
Everybody thinks it, and they're all right, but they all want to do it a different way.
I am going somewhere with this -- I got back late from the fair, which is why I wasn't here to get the call back, which is why I'm not going to be online too late. I want to get up a little earlier than usual so that when I call this guy at the time I would normally get up, I do not sound like I've just been beaten soundly and haven't slept for a few days. (Which is how I normally sound first thing in the morning.)
Wish me lots and lots of luck.
