This weekend wasn't too bad. I mean, sure, it could have been better but all in all it was ok. Let's take a look at how it went.

  1. I finished my slide deck for one of my code camp sessions.  That's a check in the plus column.
  2. I went to the Midwest Robotics League competition this weekend. There was much carnage. Big check.
  3. One of the kids was bored to tears and we ended up leaving early. That sucked.
  4. I went to GameStop and traded in enough old games to totally prepay for Guitar Hero III for the Wii. That rocked.
  5. I got an email from my recently 15y.o. daughter/drama queen, informing me that I am a horrible dad for moving to MN.  That sucked.
  6. We talked, worked things out, and it's all better. Another check in the plus column.
  7. Had a terrible headache Sunday. That sucked.
  8. Washed it away with a bottle of wine. Technically that also sucked.
  9. Finally got around to joining the #XNA room on IRC.  That goes in the plus column.
  10. Made some new friends, pimped the XNA UG and my Code Camp sessions.  Yep, another check.
  11. Got a disappointing phone call about something I was looking forward to.  that sucked.
  12. Found out, through the course of the conversation, that it may work out better for me in the long run. Definitely a check.
  13. Got another call, about something else, that wasn't as bad as I had feared.  That's a big check.
  14. Went to the client cafeteria for lunch. They have good food and it's not expensive. So that's a minor check.
  15. My lunch was so happy to see me, it decided to jump off the plate and give me a lap dance. Yes, that TOTALLY sucked.
  16. I have an important meeting this afternoon (that I requested.)  This would be a check, if not for the buffalo chicken lap dance I got at lunch. Now I get to go in looking like a dork...  (moreso than usual?)

update:  My meeting went really well. so that's another check.

We'll see how the rest of my week goes.

On the definite upside... the Heartland Developers Conference is this week, and I'm totally stoked about that.  I'm driving down on Wednesday and getting set up.  I'll see some of you there!

OMG, I just about fell out of my chair when I read this.
