Sluggy
I don't actually have anything to say, just wanted to try posting with my new Aylee icon. Nobody commented on my skating-Duke icon... *pout* Does that mean you don't like it? I thought he was pretty cute.

Ah well. Still bored at work today. Too busy to actually write a real post, but too distracted to actually get much accomplished, business-wise. I need to re-remember how to focus.

I just opened up a container of yogurt, and it spurted little yogurt-dropplings all over my wristpad. Ick. That'll teach me to eat at my desk, I suppose....no, actually it won't.

At least the yogurt is yummy.

I thought your skating icon was cute! :)
I don't know why I just thought it and didn't say it.

Just too much emphasis on ice skating; now, if you'd made them rollerskates...

but I like to skate!

Well, ice skating is kinda "my thing", y'know?
But perhaps you'll like this one better....




...or this one?


...actually, oh my gosh...I think I've actually found him with ice skates...!!!

Re: but I like to skate!

HAHA!!

What the heck is Duke, anyway? I know he's the Java mascot, but what IS he? I guess it's kinda like asking what is Goofy.

Re: but I like to skate!

I don't know what he actually is, other than fun! (Much like Goofy....) I found a whole bunch of stuff actually, digging around for new pictures.

Here are some quotes about him...

Duke is agile and impish, ubiquitous and subtle. He is usually silent: he just thinks; therefore he is.

Duke doesn't have to wear a tie if he doesn't want to.

Duke doesn't like bad code, working out, or being called a troll, a tooth, or a penguin.

Duke does like coffee, Duke Ellington, John Wayne, elegant code, and naps.

Best Duke quote: "If you define me, you nullify me."


Here are a couple articles about his birth/creation.
