That’s how I get MY news…

“I decided the way I’m going to get my news from now on is by walking out front and looking down the street. If everything isn’t on fire, that’s good news.”

-Jeffrey Rowland, Overcompensating

Also, a numerology meme:

Your Expression Number is 8
Driven and ambitious, you have the potential to reach great things.
You’re both good with money and good at getting things done quickly.
You are an excellent leader and a great judge of character.

Full of energy and confidence, you undertake projects that seem impossible.
Dependable and determined, you are able to understand the bigger picture.
Even if you are not in a position of power right now, it will fall to you.

At times, you can be very materialistic – and obsessed with status and power.
While this isn’t always a bad thing, you sometimes take it to the extreme.
In order to be truly happy, you must balance the material and spiritual in your life.

It is interesting (to me) to note that this result indicates to me that they are using Pythagorean numerology for their calculations. Some people get a different result (in my experience with it, a more accurate one) using Chaldean numerology. For example, using Chaldean numerology with the name on my birth certificate (Teel David McClanahan III) I am an Expression 22:

Your Expression Number is 22
Your number represents that of the master builder.
This means you are capable of great accomplishment and handling large undertakings.
You have unique qualities and a very unorthodox approach to problem solving.

You dream big, of projects that will last for centuries.
Only you truly have the ability to expand someone’s mind.
Your thoughts are far from normal… they are very remarkable.

No doubt you’re different, and that can sometimes come off as eccentric.
You can also be dominant and manipulative to get your way.
It’s often your way or the highway. Because you know your way is best.

One of the programs I am (now and again; my main focus right now is a video game I am developing) working on is a numerology program for Mac OS X that generates a full reading in both systems AND has an easy-to-use and visually appealing interface. Because it’s relatively simple (compared to programming a video game) and uses a variety of programming skills on the back-end (database building and access, math, multiple interface design, printing controls, and if I can work it out, some Quartz graphics) that will help get me familiar with programming in Cocoa.

Hey, maybe I’ll work on that for a while this morning…
