I've won the part of Wilbur in the (somewhat) nearby Wayne Densch Performing Arts theater's production of Hairspray! First time I've been in a play since high school; I'll bet Mom will be happy I'm using my singing voice again.

It's taking up a lot of my time, though. Luckily two of my daughters are in the play, too, as ensemble. So we go to a lot of practices together.

It hasn't cut into my exercise time, though. I'm perfectly set up: I keep track of calories with Lose It!, I take a no-fall Aikido class during lunch hour twice a week (love it!), and I commute 6 miles each way by bicycle twice a week. It's so integrated with my schedule, I can't miss. Heck, I stopped tracking calories over the holidays and still lost two pounds.

I've also been invited to interview for Amazon. What with the fiscal cliff, I'm thinking a non-government option might be worth having. (I'm not worried for simulation: even if the public eventually realizes that we don't need a huge standing military, we'll want a way to train soldiers quickly and at minimal expense. That's what simulation is all about.)

To prepare for the interview, I'm studying up on my programming basics and completing at least one interview question every day. I think I'll share the questions with you guys. So every day you'll get a new brain teaser chosen from a site like techinterview or GeeksforGeeks.

Help me out: think you can do any better than my solutions? Prove it! I love learning, and this project promises something new every day!
