in the weeds again
Tuesday, April 9 2019
It was an unusally foggy drive to work this morning, which made things a little scary in places, but I'd rather have fog than the sun in my eyes. I love crossing the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge in fog because of the sense of being an indeterminate height above the ground and distance from anything other than the immediate roadway and edges of bridge. It's like an endless grey soundstage.
Later in the day, I had similar problems when it turned out that I had to override some equality-determining methods and, in the place where the override was happening was a not within a descendant class of the class of the method being overridden. This meant that in doing the override, I wouldn't have access to the this object. And that, in turn, meant that in any equality-determining method to be overridden in this way, that method had to be static. And that in turn meant that the equality-determining method had to accept two inputs, one for one object on one side of the equality comparison and one for the object on the other side of the equality comparison (remember, I had no access to this).
As you might imagine, I left work kind of hating the app that I'd begun to love as recently as last week.
On the rainy drive home, I stopped at Adam's Fairacre Farms to get some produce Gretchen had requested. The the list of things I bought was almost identical to what she and I had bought several weeks ago on our drive up to Saugerties to see the movie Us, including non-organic asparagus, orange juice, mushrooms, broccoli, butter lettuce, and loaf of sourdough bread. I did not, however, get any pasta.
Tonight for dinner, Gretchen made a dish that included farro rice, sauteed mushrooms, broccoli, and a delicious creamy sauce. It all looked a bit too healthy for me, but I ended up going back for seconds just before Double Jeopardy. In the episode of Jeopardy we watched today, it was the third day in the reign of terror by a very smart, very unpleasant gentleman with very white teeth named James Holzhauer. He routinely wins at least $40,000 per game.
