  • Finished first week of work. Completed first task (optimization of some existing code) - was told that I was working too fast. :D Pending code review.
  • Dodgeball on Friday was rained out. Curses.
  • Next Saturday, Amazon is presenting a concert in celebration of its 10th anniversary. Headliners will be Bob Dylan and Norah Jones. Concert will be streamed on the website... however, as a Seattle Amazon employee, I'm going to be there. I'm going to see Dylan. WOO. (Norah Jones should be okay too, but.... dude. Dylan.
  • Had our first Geek Night with Shoshana, Derek, Damian, Sam (I think?), Kirsten (I think, again), and Cat. Cool people. We watched the first Firefly DVD (damn, that's a fun show) and had some scotch - Aberlour 10-year single-malt. Mmm.
  • Other people's wireless was unavailable for most of the day. I get what I pay for, I suppose. And more, since I'm online now...
  • Monday's Scatterplot is done. Tomorrow should see me working ahead on Wednesday's.
  • Hopefully having appointments to look at apartments next weekend. I've got a couple picked out for visiting.
  • Finished watching ROD TV tonight. Excellent series, a bit weird at the end. But excellent. Particularly as a fan of the original OVAs...

I guess that's it. Now, the unconsciousness.

You're going to see Dylan? DYLAN??!!!!
I...am so jealous.
Dylan. Dude.

I'm glad Seattle is going well, and you should talk to my friend Becky about Firefly. She absolutely loves that show.

Ah, the perks of being an Amazon employee. Congratulations again, man. :-)
