lunch was a cafesito breakfast; not their best, but it was a pleasant day for chomping a sandwich and reading wired. i was startled to read about one-way tickets to mars: there's a man who's got his head screwed on the right way!
i napped a bit, then hurriedly bladed to meet scrapper and botchman at the wall. it's been so long that my feet really hurt as well as my hands, but overall it wasn't a bad effort and now that it's spring / summer again we're planning on making it a weekly thing.
back home, i had just enough time to eat and shower before finally getting in touch with aeroplane on skype - he's now heard my pitch for a graphic novel, and he's interested enough to give my material a once-over before we discuss storyboarding. he's an amazing artist, so if he digs it this could be really, REALLY big (^_^) *holds thumbs*
[pg nailpolish incident - i don't feel comfortable writing about it here, but it's worth noting (for myself) that it was an amusing experience that's taught me a lesson]
i finally caught up with an old friend from my early army days who i've been in almost constant communication with on facebook, and we met for coffee that turned into a long evening of software development, project management, psychology, philosophy and heavy politics. the evening was as entertaining as it was stimulating, and i'm fairly sure we'll have to do it again soon.
i got home to another work crisis, this one completely unintelligible: the distributed elements of the service that i put into place this week are working fine, but for some reason the data that the database is returning via stored procedures is not the data being received by the services. that's just totally weird. oh, well. another mystery to be dealt with tomorrow.
april fool's has been cancelled this year.
