Day five, coffee mug (late!), dried apples, disk with good docs on it

My Single Early tulips are starting to bloom - I saw Christmas Marvel and Purple Prince getting going in the back yard. Yay!

It's going to be a busy day at work ... I have to test our software on about thirty browser/OS combinations, with flash updates to each, and I have to do this while the dope across the cube provides me minute by minute Iraq updates, all delivered gleefully. I've got my headphones on now and even did the "LA LA LA!" with my hands over my ears when he started going on about it.

The board meeting last night was pleasant. Everyone showed up, and they all liked the location I picked (the Pamama Hotel Tearoom). I got lots of good feedback about my work over the course of the year, which was super nice, and we made some headway planning for the post-concert reception for the last show of the year (Academy of Ancient Music). Afterwards I went to Mesob and played Mah Jong, and I managed to go out completely concealed on a tile thrown off by Matt. It was cool. (Oh, and hi, Cathy, it was fun to see you last night!)

I got the The Stranger this morning on my walk downtown (with Worthy Opponent, who has his last day of jury duty today) and saw that About Schmidt and Far From Heaven were starting at the Crest tomorrow (kind of your Academy Awards backwash). What with Cowboy Bebop playing at the Varsity at the same time, it's going to be a week with too many movie choices.

Dogged / food

Huh, I'm getting dogged for dinner tonight, but s'okay, it looks like I need to stay here at work until 6 anyway and what with the need to take the dogs out before I went out the whole thing was looking like a big scheduling problem, and the No Dinner option seems much cheaper and less stressful to boot. Dim sum was fun anyway: I got one of my coworkers to come with me and Worthy O. We got (cue 12 Days of Christmas): steamed BBQ pork Han Bow, boiled pork dumplings, beef rice noodle crepes, super sugar ribs, black bean ribs, flaky BBQ pork pastry, and honey pecan shrimp for the guys. Also we ordered some little custard tarts, since Missy Sleen got me all hot for them last week. They were just a little bit warm and GOOOOOOD! Afterwards we took Coworker over to Gossip for some bubble tea since he'd never tried it before. What a fun lunch!

Hopefully we'll still go to the art museum or see a movie or something: I don't really care. W.O. made it through all three days without getting picked for the jury, so he's going to go home for the PM, pick up for the appraiser, and go buy baseball tickets before picking me up this evening.

I've got a lot to work to do so it's OVER and OUT for now!

So pretty

I swear I am working REALLY hard trying to find out about different versions of Flash, but the movie of the sea life here is so pretty I had to show it to you.
