Crappy day at work today. Hours and hours of frustration, and by the time 6:00 rolled around I was heated. I had planned on leaving by 4:00, but was just stuck in fixing somebody else's "completed" code.

Backstory here: the other teams are doing this thing where they say their modules are "code complete", without ever saying what this means. To me, code isn't complete until it's passed unit test, but I think they're fudging the whole testing concept, as evidenced by the code that I had to fix today. Not only would this code not have passed unit test, it would not even compile. It took me two hours to trace everything down and get it corrected, only to provide me with an exception (uninitialized pointer) error.
I gave up.
I still have a buttload of tests to write, but I'll be damned if I'm going to burn tomorrow to do them. They can wait.

This ended up making me kinda cranky. I was at a toss-up about going to the gym because I wasn't feeling really good at all, just tired and pissed. I had stopped at the grocery store to pick up some fresh fruits and veggies that I've been sorely missing, and they had nectarines! So I ate a nectarine, and a little while later felt at least worth going to the gym.

It was a good decision. Almost two hours later, I walked out the door. Hard work. I bumped the weight and reps up and added bicep and tricep curls to the upper-body cycle. I'm less cranky now.

The downside is that now I'm horny.

I'm a little weirded out by the ability of exercise to turn one kind of frustration into another. It's probably mindset-- exercising is focusing on my body, improving it, getting circulation into areas that have been somewhat starved for a while (I did somewhere around 500 reps on the thigh machine at 60 lbs after doing 4 sets of 25 at 100 lbs. My ass is as tight as a 55-gallon drum).

I am not going to a strip club. As much as I want to, I'm not. I'm staying home tonight. I'd much rather be out with friends and a bunch of pretty girls, but it's just not an option.

Ah, hell.
