You Are Beautiful

On the walk to the Blue Line this morning, I came across another one of those "You are beautiful" signs that I found a few weeks back. I like the idea of communicating through these little stickers, especially since there’s not any tangible product that’s being hawked. I’ll be so pissed if this is some promotional campaign for a product…

Ben Raises the Bar

SWEET BEAUTIFUL JEBUS! Oh, maaaaan this thing is nice. Ben was telling us about the chess set he made, a few years back. This ltitle beaut has been tucked away for the past three years. Can you believe that?!?! Ben hand-made each piece, and did a fair amount of research into the origin of the pieces. A lot of stuff…

Intervew

A few days back, a friend of Justin and Dave’s e-mailed me, saying that she and her classmates were doing some sort of study for school. Something about learning (I don’t have the e-mail here at home). Two classmates in particular were looking for people who use Flash, both users who are new to the application as well as those…

Chess

A while back, when MoonDragon visited, she gave me a great gift as a "thank you" for letting her crash here. Well, I broke down and brought it in to work. I’ve been playing for a few days now, sort of a "me versus the rest of the company" type of game. Anyone who walks by is welcome to move….

Juliet!

Long, good converastion with Juliet. We were chatting away for hours, and next thing I know it’s 12:30. We decided to tentatively "do something" the weekend of the 16th. Not sure what, not sure where. But we both have decided. We’re both decisive like that.

Strong design. Usability. Effective communication, visually complemented. This is why I wanted to learn Flash in the first place!

Half a Song

You can hum it, sans words, the garbled tune with someone loving someone more, or not enough. Learn the words.

Warmth

Thinking of you I think: lost skiers, half-buried in snow. They sip whiskey, even though they know better.

Tomorrow People

So all of a sudden Speccy PM’s me, and somehow The Tomorrow People come up. This was an old show that I used to watch as a wee one, on Nickelodeon. Something about a newer species of humans, they could teleport at will… with these belts. On looking over the pictures, everything was incredibly low budget and quite 70’s. But…

We’re Here Again!

Oh man o man o man. Yeah, baby! After quite the absence, www.were-here.com is back online! Dayam! People are posting like crazy in Just Converastion, and nerdy me… I never took WH off as my homepage. Earlier, as I was opening a new IE window, I thought "Gee, maybe I should wait and see if it’ll HOLEEEE CRAP!" Lo and…

Issues

My ISP is, apparently, experiencing some serious technical difficulties. Again. Their servers were acting up a bit while I was in Alabama, and now this. Ah well, it’s not life or death for me here. Just my little blog. But I can’t update, or get e-mail or anything – we’ll see if things change this evening.

Night

Stu was in the office this evening, dropping off the photos he took of the UltraCrib promotion. We met up outside the Merchandise Mart, and Stu was really happy with Rey’s reactions (or, shall we say that Rey was really taken with Stu’s work). We all walked to Stu’s car, and decided on dinner together La Scarola. This place is…
