Trying to find some new jeans

Earlier today we went to a Levi outlet store. They did not have any of the 517 style jeans on the shelves. Oddly enough the only bootcut jeans they carried were some 527 slim bootcut style jeans. It has been some time since I have been able to walk into a store and buy my desired bootcut jeans. Apparently, I either need to adjust to buying slim bootcut style jeans or it is time to find some new jeans. Slowly over the last few years my jeans have been wearing out.

My next project

Tomorrow I will commence work on a new data collection algorithm. I’m going to have it aggregate news at a very macro level. The algorithm part of the equation will evaluate the magnitude of awareness. An automated process will be setup to determine the top 10 stories of the day and report the number of people aware of each story. It should be pretty easy to build. Most of the scripting is already complete. End of line.

A very wild birthday

Things should have been pretty calm today. A few things at work bubbled up at the end of the day and changed things from calm to wild sauce. That is a highly technical term to describe a situation where things get wilder than expected.

John Paul’s third birthday happened today. We got a cake from the Rheinlander Bakery. People really seemed to like the cake. It was a chocolate raspberry truffle torte cake. We have one slice left in the refrigerator.

The University of Kansas vs. the University of Texas basketball game had a great first half. I enjoyed watching the second half and really enjoyed hearing the RCJH chant at the end of the game.

For the first time in a long time, I had to fill out some education certification paperwork by hand this week. That was an interesting experience.
