`make bowel-growl`?

I've been really bad this last week with watching my diet. Maybe for the average 'Joe XL', eating out 2-3 times a week is a normal occurrence, but for this guy, it damages my damn body to a point of reckoning. Ya, so maybe I sound like a fucking sissy poster boi for an "Activa" commercial... case in point: I'm not a fast food or restaurant devotee; I'd prefer to make my own healthy food and eat in moderation.

This morning was an absolute test in gurgling intestinal foo. A sudden urge to drop the brown snake anchor hit me like a ton of bricks. So what's a geek like me to do when I know I'm going to be stranded in the handi-capped john stall for a while? Well, a dude like me grabs the nearest book within reach and heads for the can.

Well, out of all books I happened to grab, I took the convenient, yet coincidentally ironic book title of 'Managing Projects with Make' by O'reilly.

What did I learn from all of this? Well I certainly didn't learn how script myself to do a 'make dump' or anything impossibly fantastic, but I did train myself to keep a better set of bathroom-friendly material in case I have another attack of the eatting-out-bowel monster.
