I was teaching a course today. The course lasted for four hours, the first two and a half of which I had to spend talking non-stop. This is not a particularly fun task - I'm good at public speaking, but I'm not practised at it. So people tend to get bored and fall asleep when the subject is something as wildly interesting as "VisualAge Java Introduction for Developers", and I do stupid things like realise I've started drinking out of my glass of water halfway through a sentence.

Usually when I'm teaching, I get a table to stand behind. This time, I got a podium. I felt like I should have been giving a sermon, or saying "Hi, my name is Charles Miller, and I can finally admit that I am addicted to programming."

Yes, I'm a code-aholic.
