I met some Tech-Comm-grad-student-alumni-turned-IBMers today at Johnny Carinos in Brier Creek for lunch at 1:00: Courtney, Milton, and Will. Lunch was organized by Amelia, but at about ten 'til, she texted in sick.
Courtney ended lunch by telling us about a recent Snapped episode in which the "contestant" who "snapped" (and killed her mother) was a technical writer with a "large, lucrative software company in the Silicon Valley." We all had a good laugh over that.
A sign of the times. This little girl was going to town on the Internet @ Helios this afternoon:
As you can see, her feet didn't even reach the ground.
I worked from there from about 2:00 until about 6:00, doing guess what—that's right, editing. Kevin
(av8rdude) joined me for about an hour.
Kevin and I evidently miscommunicated at Helios, as I thought we were meeting at the gym at 8:00, and he thought I was going to call him if I was going at 8:00. Oh well. He didn't show up, but it didn't deter me.
Today's workout statistics:
I listened to several more chapters of In Cold Blood during the hour. Also, I ran into my friend Erin LoFrese there. Always good to see her.
