Homo sweet home...

We got up around 9:00 and pulled out of the parking lot at 10:22 to head back to Raleigh.

It was an uneventful 4.5-hour ride back, with a stop for lunch at a Quizno's just about 75 miles from Durham.

Once home, I got a nice chunk of editing done, and then met Joe at Flex for some free pool and karaoke.

We ended the night at The Borough, where we ran into Josh (who used to work at IBM), and his roommate Jeff. Joe and I split a Uberwisconsin and an order of hushpuppies.

Fifteen people applied, and a 25-year-old woman accepted the job without meeting the children.Coincidences, after Warner Bros. threatened to sue the makers of a Bollywood movie called Hari Puttar. Producer Munish Purii said Hari is a common Indian name and Puttar means son, and that he was in no way trying to exploit the success of Harry Potter.
