When memes go wrong

Twenty years ago, I ....
probably would have remembered what day "tomorrow" was right off the bat instead of completely fluffing it and nearly missing a hair appointment. DOH!

Damn, I love testing against well-documented requirements

I know not a lot of people can relate to this, but my morning is being made very happy by having nice documentation for all of the stuff I'm testing. It's really well arranged, and even though I'm looking at a bunch of features I don't know very well, I'm able to find most of the answers to my question all on my lonesome. It's like, I don't know, cooking and having all of the ingredients and tools just right at hand.

Tonight we may go see Across the Universe at the Putney Odeon at 8:10, depending on how quickly I get out of the salon. Hurray for artsy-fartsy movies and the Beatles!

A few links for my friends

First, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy appears to cancel the risk of suicidal thinking or behavior associated with taking antidepressant medication for adolescents.

Second, how you argue with your spouse can determine how likely you are to have heart disease (or something like that, basically if I keep it pent up, I will die).

Third, friends with benefits also come with stress, though it's not about what I expected.

Fourth, Marcel Proust liked watching caged rats get stabbed with hairpins. (And someone else who is getting ready to plunge into Sodom and Gomorrah besides me and grahamsleight - it does feel lonely reading this book at times.)

Finally, 9/11 is over - it's time for 9/12. "You may think Guantánamo Bay is a prison camp in Cuba for Al Qaeda terrorists. A lot of the world thinks it’s a place we send visitors who don’t give the right answers at immigration. I will not vote for any candidate who is not committed to dismantling Guantánamo Bay and replacing it with a free field hospital for poor Cubans. Guantánamo Bay is the anti-Statue of Liberty." I like that.
