Wait... Is that an insult to my vocabulary?

Only astonishment that we would both choose the same word. Like minds using the same word.

I wish I could take a train over to Michigan to meet you, but I'm getting on a train to Montreal tomorrow. Now, if I get the wrong train accidentally, I'll let you know.

AMAZING.

(I had forgotten about line rider!)

I cannot get over how incredibly mesmerizing this is...

how did you know? are you following us around? ;-)

I just landed in Detroit to visit my parents and be a tourist in my home town... So there's that!

You should go around, ooing and awwing everything and taking pictures like Detroit is the biggest, fanciest city you've ever seen.

    It feels pretty fuckin' good to fabricate the sound of a UAV out of whole cloth using nothing but oscillators, reverb and doppler effect.

I'll admit to being turned on more than I should be.

    because she can't receive the attachments she's asking for

My supervisor (pronounced: tells me what to do, doesn't understand our companies product line or operational strategy, and makes hella more money than I do) asked me how to forward an email message in gmail. I can't make that shit up.

    but on the other hand, holy fuck that's a fun little car.

all that matters...

move: I wondered if this wouldn't happen... bittersweet... but I'm excited for you.

dog: we shared some messages. Not even a dog person, but I can relate and my heart aches for you

babies: some magical-neruro-biological-emotional witchcraft in those first few minutes, hours, days...

FL: I've already fawned all over how happy I am for you guys... keep it up.

    I repaired a washing machine!

Well done!

I find very few things as rewarding as diagnosing a problem, troubleshooting the source, and repairing it with my own hands.

I'm not popping corks on any bottles yet...

but I had a second round of interviews today with a parade of VPs and the CFO. Nothin is certain until I have a signed offer letter in hand... but I think I crushed it. It all felt really natural and right. The role has changed a bit since our first meeting, but the hiring manager and I discussed at length, and it should be a healthy stretch of my abilities (also pronounced super challenging and almost daunting).

I'm super stoked. Thank you all again for the support and kindness. I actually went to the post from last week and re-listend to all of the pump up songs on the drive in. Mr. Miyagi gets me every time...

    Remember your defense

    points come

    concentrate

    focus power

    remember balance

    make good fight

straight up wisdom right there...

I hope you are wrong.

We are already at war now, I'm not sure if the average American would even notice if we added another front.

It's pretty much semantic at this point, isn't it? Invade iraq? We're at war. Hang out in iraq and Afghanistan for decades? We're "keeping the peace." Either way, always support our troops, put on your flag pin, tie a yellow ribbon and god help you if you question a foreign policy entirely dependent on imperialism.

This thought had never occurred to me

    All I know is that we are the last generation who will be able to meet Holocaust survivors in person, and I consider that a tremendous responsibility.

You can't miss it. You just have to make more paperclips. Whatever number of paperclips you have made, you just have to make more paperclips.
