blue monday

Drove back from Brownwood today. Was feeling a little blue today, maybe because we haven't seen the sun in days, but probably because I'm missing Allison and feeling lots of angst about my transition out of Coremetrics and into Google. It's really starting to dawn on me that I'm starting at GOOG on Monday. Wow. Can't wait to see which names I got for my computers. I get to name my laptop/desktop and I requested one of these three combos: firefly/serenity, magicbox/bronze, wolfram/hart. :)

Anyway, dinner with Ben and Kelly at Z Tejas, with a nice Pinot Noir and mushroom enchiladas, cheered me right up.

Got the linux box that I left here in Austin up and running again, so that I don't have to be without a computer for three days (heaven forbid!) between turning in my Coremetrics laptop on Wednesday and flying back to NYC on Sunday. Writing this entry in a really old version of Mozilla, running on Fedora Core 1, with the crappy 15-inch monitor I swapped for my 20" with my dad. Why should you care? You shouldn't!

I'm really going to get some more pictures up soon. Really. I swear.
