I think anyone who has to employ any sort of craft in their job gets to experience, from time to time, "the zone". The Zone is a magical place where not only is everything you do brilliant, reflecting upon Zoned material post-Zone will make you say (frequently aloud), "Wow, how did I do that?". And the weirdest part is that you mean it--you couldn't recreate it when you were outside of the Zone. This happens a lot with writing music (although not frequently enough to get into Cornell for a doctorate but whatever). It definitely happens with programming and yesterday I did a week's worth of work in a few hours. This was particularly handy because I try not to work more than a few hours a day anyway so it timed out well. Thanks Zone.
I just made up a good joke for the next time Brian has a joke day on his blog.
Requisite Cubs note: Jamie and I went to Cleveland Park to see part of the Cubs bizarro victory over the Pirates last night.
Now for the big news--I'M GETTING A GUN. More on that tomorrow!!!
