A pitcher of beer every 10 minutes...

...until somebody passes out.  Then make it every 7 minutes!
 
I never thought I'd see the day but at 2:30 CDT this afternoon I'll once again be a student...I'm going Back to School!  At my annual review earlier this year my boss "suggested" that I take courses in XHTML and C# to develop a skillset for future IT work so I registered at the local community college.  I guess I can't complain since I've been doing the same thing for over 29 years which is a pretty good run in the IT industry, but the first couple of days are going to take some getting used to.  I still haven't yet decided if I'm going to tell people my name is Thornton Melon or Pierce Hawthorne.
 
So I guess either the company figures I'm worth the investment, or they're hoping I'll take my newfound knowledge elsewhere in 4 months.
 
Of course, I made sure to look into this aspect of campus life...

    Are you a large person? Pleasantly plump? A little on the hefty side, perhaps? Well, let's face it: are you fat? When you go jogging, do you leave potholes? When you make love, do you have to give directions? At the zoo, do elephants throw you peanuts? Do you look at a menu and say, 'Okay'?

    How was the first class?  Did you make a good impression on Professor Turgeson?

    This is just another excuse to not go out on any Contingent tours: "Sorry, I've got homework to do this weekend..."

    Well, considering what site this is...
     
    It's nice to see so much appreciation for quality cinema!

    The people have spoken - you should go with being Mellon. Pierce Hawthorne thinks he's 'streets ahead' but he's not.

    "No, it's okay, just keep your hands and feet away from his mouth."
     
    "0.2... Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son"
     
    "What's with the midget over here?"
     
    "When's our first class?"
    "Uh, we got Economics tomorrow at 11 o'clock."
    "11 o'clock? No good. I got a massage 11 o'clock. Tell 'em to make it 2 o'clock."
     "No, dad. Uh, you don't get it. They're not gonna re-schedule the classes around your massage."
    "All right, 11 o'clock, but I'm gonna talk to that Dean. I mean, these classes could be a REAL inconvenience."
     
    Ahhh yes Back to School and Animal House two classic movies!!

    So far things are going fairly well but unfortunately there isn't much in the way of independent restaurants in the relatively close vicinity of the campus or my route home.  East Washington Avenue leads out to the mall so it's riddled with chains and if I head towards downtown Madison I'm going out of my way.  I was hoping I'd have some reasonable opportunities to try some new places but right now the prospects aren't looking particularly good, at least based on what I'm finding on Google Maps.
