I do fairly well with heads-down coding when I have few distractions. The tunes in my headphones do a good job of keeping the distractions down. Also, having a good handle on what I'm doing helps. I don't have to break out to look up material or ask for help much anymore. Still not what I want to do for the next 10 years, but it feels good to be competent.
Saturday evening I'm going to go to the Twins game at the Metrodome. A co-worker told me the final of Friday's game when I came in. I hadn't the heart to tell her I'd planned on watching the end of the game on my Tivo when I got home in the morning. Still, knowing the effort the Twins put in, it will be fun to watch.
Hoping to get a cap in the promotion that they're having tomorrow night. Means I'll have to plan on having dinner at the game, which will be kinda fun. Would be nicer if it was outdoors of course, but still, a hot dog, a beer, and a ball-game; what could be better?
I splurged on myself and bought a lower-deck seat near home plate. Wednesday I'm going to go to another game with a buddy and got seats in the upper deck right behind home plate. Should be good watching both games. Toronto is in town this weekend and the White Sox come into town on Tuesday. Neither club is doing very well overall, but both have been OK since the All-Star break. Hopefully be fun games.
