The Aroma

I will be heading to Tacoma by way of Portland for Thanksgiving. It will be a long drive there and back, and I am saddened that Sarah won’t be meeting me there as originally planned, and that I can’t take Donald and Mary Ann with to visit with Jay and Melody in Portland and then Donald and Chandler in Tacoma, but this is how it worked out. As it stands, I will likely drive the coast all the way back.

TechnoDonald and Mary Ann: Would you do me the honor of sharing a make up Thanksgiving after the regular Thanksgiving? My treat?

RegularDonald and Chandler: CAN HAZ BACONS?

I will ask everyone more politely later. I’m just so excited for another road trip.

Lonely As a Cloud in the Golden State

I’m fairly sure that I was promised endless summer and sunshine when I agreed to move to California. It rained Friday night, Saturday, and is raining today. Then again, I did enjoy nearly two months of ridiculously constant sun, and since the patio door is open, I can hear the gentle rainfall while I debug things for work.

Sad News

After five years of being a member of the core developers of the Gallery open source software — and reaping many personal, academic, and professional rewards from the same, I quietly left the team on Thursday. A large contingent of the core developers had met at the extended Googleplex here in Mountain View to sit down and hammer out as much of the next version of Gallery as possible. Halfway through day two I realized that my heart simply wasn’t in it. Yes, I still love software development, and still need software to manage my images, but somewhere during my sabbatical for school I drifted away and just never came back. Splitting from your high school girlfriend when you go to college is a bit cliché, but that’s pretty much what happened. I continued to offer logistical support to the team for the rest of the week, but Thursday afternoon I went back to my day job and tried to stay out of the way of Gallery’s progress.

Leaving was an incredibly difficult decision. I am still a bit flattened by it.

Bidet, sir. I SAID BIDET!

I am at the Googleplex for three days with the Gallery group to hack out a completely new version of Gallery. After drinking a huge cup of coffee and a small cup of tea, I found myself suddenly in need of a restroom visit. I don’t know if you know this, but the Google bathrooms have heated seats, and sprays of warm water for your bottom. I thought that this would be the height of luxury, but, uh, no. That was actually kind of… icky.

About Pitbulls

When you refer to “lipstick” in the context of a canine, doesn’t it usually refer to the dog’s penis as it extends from the prepuce? I’m just saying that “Pitbull with lipstick” seems to me to mean “a dog with an erect wang.”

An observation

Sarah Palin puts the “L” in “pain”. Listening to her “debate” makes my skin crawl.
