A job well done

I'm sipping a diet Canadian from a frosty mug right now. The taste brings me back in Scrubs-aside fashion to Oulette Avenue in Windsor, Ontario, circa 1993. Good times. I'm sitting on the couch and catching up on my stories (as in, prime time television drama). I just got out of the hot tub, which I'm thrilled is actually staying clean despite heavy use. There's a nice breeze flowing through the house.

So what gets me all this Zen-like goodness? I actually wrote a fair amount of code today for the next version of CoasterBuzz. Today was all about revamping the entire club membership stuff. The goal was to provide the upsell opportunity, look up expiration dates and transaction history, and indicate membership card printing dates. While that is generally pretty basic stuff, it is time consuming. Add on some CSS issues, some rewiring to make the account stuff not appear as part of the forum app, and I even made new mail-in PDF's after six years.

How close does this get me to finishing the site? Well, I've still got a really long list of things to do, but I suppose progress is progress. It's easy to get overwhelmed, but I'm trying to keep things in little pieces and take them one at a time.

Overall though, it was a good, productive day. A very good Monday after an awesome weekend!

I love it when I have a productive day and then sit back with a drink, relaxing, and feeling very accomplished. It's one of the best feelings in the world.

diet Canadian?

Clearly I'm missing what this beverage product actually is. I can only think "clearly canadian" which is just flavored water.

If you refer to it as "Molson Canadian" you sound like a tourist. It'd be like saying "Anheuser-Busch Budweiser."

Ah. Around here, it's just considered "Molson".

Now I don't feel so bad for asking the same question Joe did during HWFA. ;)
