About Lisp, Pandora, Central New York and Other things on my Mind

I’m working my way through Paul Graham’s Book Ansi Common Lisp. I’m feeling lazy right now ( I think that it being almost midnight has a lot to do with it), and I want the answers to some of the excercises. I went here, and looked up for some answers. Unfortunately, the writer did’nt post answers for chapter excercises that I was looking for. I guess I’ll have to figure this out the hard way.

Pandora’s automated selection of music has good and bad days. I spent Saturday morning and afternoon listening to it, while I randomly clicked around on the web, and I enjoyed song after song. Today, its just dismal. I dont get it. Maybe my preferences change between Saturday morning and Monday evening.

Central New York’s weather sucks big-time today and will remain crummy until Friday, when the lake-effect snow and arctive wind finally subside. We’ve had a uncharacteristically warm December, and I had almost dared to hope that the warm spell may have just last. It was wishful thinking. Winter came back roaring back. Looking at the weather outside, it would be hard to believe that global warming is occuring because it sure does’nt look like it. Its no wonder there are so many environmental skeptics out there, when they have to go through these kinds of winters. I’m bracing myself for about a foot of snow this winter.

Other things on my mind? Tax Season. I made a New Year Resolution that I would get my taxes done as soon as I got my W-2 forms. I got mine about 2 weeks ago. Procrastination will be the end of me. I found an interesting tax tip today. I need to confirm this but an extra $30 is’nt bad.
