I'm no lemming - good morning

Yesterday was interesting, if you find layoffs a piquant spice to the day. It was just two of the sales people (one of them my neighbor Andrew), but it was a clear sign that they had some trimming to do to keep us in the cash-flow positive mode until 1) we make the deal with Very Large Retailer A or B or 2) August comes and the company goes tits-up, take your pick. And these guys hadn't closed any deals in months, so it's not like we're going to lower our sales by losing them. My thought was that there are only so many sales to be made right now and that two people can do them as easily as four.

Unfortunately I found a bug, or four, right before I left, which was bad news, mostly because 1) I was ready to leave and 2) we're very close to launching but also because 3) I couldn't repro them. We just got some new code out, a major shift, and I should have been doing a lot more testing on it yesterday than I did, although I did cook along once it was actually delivered to me in the very late morning.

MahJong was not so exciting last night, although a discussion of Rate My Poo made me laugh longer and louder than I have in a long time. And of course I had to share the horror story of my flamenco teacher and her incredibly open attitute toward her gastric indiscretions with everyone. But my game sucked and it's never as good when there's five people, even though it was nice to see Rebecca again. I read Coraline for a while after I bagged out (early), but I still didn't get to bed until 11:30.

Tonight we're going to see Beau Travail at the Grand Illusion. Any takers? And we're still discussing having a sangria party Saturday night, but I'd like to have at least three people say they're free before I declare it a party.
