Starting to feel the water rising

With just a quick count, there are at least 8 different things I need to take care of after this high-priority job I have to take care of today (and which will likely take most of today). I need to figure out some sort of system for keeping track of everything.

It almost seems worth it to come in this weekend just so I can clear some things off my desk.



Application Program Interface or Application Programming Interface? It seems to be about 50/50 out there. I'd like to hear what anyone has to say about the semantic difference (if any) between the two.

Well, that was quick

My house goes on the market June 20th. The assignment they gave me was to reduce the clutter on the main floor. So, I think the next two weekends will be devoted to cleaning and getting rid of stuff.

And they'll also be looking for a place for me downtown. There were two of them, and they made a really impressive presentation. I left it feeling like they were going to work really hard for me. Plus they seemed nice, which is . . . nice.

Anyone want to come over and pick through my books and suchlike? Probably dishes, too. I need to figure out what I'm keeping. If I were a really organized person with lots of free time, I would make a detailed list of everything I'm getting rid of. I'm not that kind of person, though.

And I also need to get pre-approved for a mortgage. I called and left a message with Washington Mutual, and I'll see what they have to offer me. And then I'll shop around.
