I found a few good presentations in my Inbox today. I read them. Usually I don't. I enjoyed them, especially Mike's. I think WW2 looks promising, and I expect that I will try it soon. I predict that I will like it and I will be enthusiastic about it. Many hours will be lost exploring it's codebase and questioning it's authors. Julie will long for me to come to bed, but I will stay up and educate myself. This doesn't sound like any fun at the moment. So I will control my curiousity for another day. Hopefully I can control it for another month or year.
I just flew in from Montana this morning - and boy does it suck to be back. Being back in Denver isn't so bad, it's sitting at the keyboard, programming Java, reading weblogs/e-mail and being stuck in an office while summer is going on! Man is it beautiful outside right now. And it's even nicer in Montana. 5 days of laughing, sleeping, rafting, playing frisbee, BBQ-ing, friends and the wonderful sun makes it very hard to come back to this thing I despise today - work.
Sure it'll be fun in a day or so when I start becoming a part of this digital world again - through responding to e-mails and updating this site - but right now - bbblllllllllaaaaahhhh!!! Give me a beer and a lawn chair and put me back on vacation - that's where I belong - on the front porch of the cabin, with Abbie on my lap - listening to the birds chirping and watching the deer tiptoe through the garden below. Rafting down the crystal green river on the Middle Fork of the Flathead. There's nothing like summer in Montana.
