Not a ton else to report. I think I've got two weeks of my class left. That's going fairly easily. Maybe too easily.
One more thing. I love fireflies.

Wikipedia continues to amaze:
The area was previously called Kipi Kawi and Chippecotton by the indigenous peoples, both names for the Root River.Kipikawi was (is) the name of Park's yearbook. I went there for 4 years and I've been gone for 10, and I never knew that until now. Nikki put it best: "i just figured it was some dumb thing the school invented in the 50s or something. ;)"

I thought maybe Pyrex was the answer to my iced tea woes, but perhaps that isn't the case:
Nothing's worse than being betrayed by an old friend. So Molly of Wilkes-Barre, Pa., was shattered when her trusted Pyrex baking dish blew.Long list of complaints here.

Mental note: don't use an insulated coffee carafe with a thin glass inner lining for brewing iced tea.
Oh, it may work once. Or twice. Or even dozens of times.
But one day, you'll be calmly pouring boiling water over those tea bags and maybe pushing them down a little to keep them from floating, when, before you know it...
Yes, not only do I not have any iced tea to drink right now, I'm out a container to brew it in *and* 4 (quart sized!) tea bags.
Bed Bath and Beyond is open 24 hours, right?

DOB 2/16/79. I'm a web developer at the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. I like lots of old music, including The Who. I spend a lot of time working with computers. And my favorite TV show (when I actually decide to watch TV, that is), obviously, is The Simpsons. Education:
In May 2002 I officially graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a BS in computer science. In 1997 (man that seems like a long time ago) I graduated from Washington Park HS. Yes, I know, that site isn't very impressive, and no, I haven't touched it for several years.
One of the best experiences I have ever had was on a trip called Western Field Studies. This is a 33 day adventure throughout the western United States. Students travel on a school bus to national parks, monuments, forests, and places of historical interest and camp out (in tents or under the stars). I was a part of trip 25, which took place in the summer of 1996. A first for WFS was we took along a laptop computer and kept up a web site. That link will take you to the 1996 site, where there is a link to the current site.
