Carson Daly is a genius

Okay, before you call me a nutball, listen up:

I've never given his show a chance because I think he's a complete moron and a horrible latenight TV host. Tonight I happened to catch the beginning of his show because Conan ran right up to the last minute and Carson's show began immediately.

Carson did a few ok jokes, but the genius is that he knows when to stop his opening monologue. His interviewing "skills" are atrocious, and generally he's a boring guy on TV, but he certainly knows when to quit.

If you're not a funny guy, knowing the moment to go out on top with a great joke somebody else wrote is genius in my book.

Almost another month...

Things should be settling down now, as the temp job is pretty much over. The purpose of the project was to prepare data in a legacy system for upload to a new software application on the client's server which should happen tonight and tomorrow morning. Today was the last full day of work and next week will be just a few days of cleanup to fix things that didn't upload properly.

No more 12 hour days, 60+ hour weeks, at least for awhile.

Just a post to let you know I'm still alive.

Oh, and I'll be moving at the end of the month to the other side of town. The suburban mecca of Elk Grove is calling. A friend of mine has a new condo with a room available, so I'll be saving on rent and helping him with the mortgage.

Good times.
