(say it out loud if it's not amusing yet)
This silly little joke became an inside thing with a friend of mine years ago, and we would occasionally make the other laugh by saying randomly, not even the punchline, but the sound a tomato being stepped on would make. squish!
So, a little catching-up-on-my-life post. I'm terribly behind, but still alive and well. In fact, life is pretty good right now.
11. Wicked, the Life and Time of the Wicked Witch of the West, by Gregory Maguire (An entertaining retelling of the story of Oz from the perspective of the witch as the protagonist.)
I'm off to Lebanon New Hampshire tonight, and I'll be there until saturday morning. It will be for a week's worth of sprint planning and software design, and it will be grueling but hopefully fun also. Please do not use this information for stalking or house-robbing purposes. I have attack cats.
Saturday, when I return, I intend to go to Penguicon. I will have special ribbons (the same kind as at ConFusion, for those who have seen them) for people who want to donate to breast cancer research.
Who don't you post anymore?
I don't know! I have all kinds of stories in my head, but they haven't been making their way out through my fingers as much as they used to. I hope to remedy that soon.
What else is up?
My mouth is still a bit hurty, but worlds better than last week so that's cool.
I saw girlfriends from my old job last night, and we sat around drinking wine, eating pizza, and catching up on life for hours. It was wonderful.
M and I saw an excellent movie two nights ago, Vantage Point, and we both really liked it. We realized that (1) we haven't seen a movie separately or together since we saw In Bruges seven weeks ago, and (2) we have no "couple" sort of traditions that we do together. We have thus decided to form a tradition, known hereafter as the "colo tradition". The friday before I go on a business "colocated planning session", we will go on a dinner-and-a-movie date. This will happen every seven weeks. It's good to have habits!
I should finish packing and get out of here.
