So I am in San Jose. I’m here for work for a week and I’m staying in a hotel. That means not seeing my guys for a bunch of nights in a row. We’re talking on the phone of course, but it’s just not the same. I was doing OK until tonight and then I started getting lonesome for them. I could tell it was getting bad when I started telling my co-workers Wyatt stories non-stop over our sushi dinner tonight. Lucky for me, they are good natured fellas with kids of their own so they indulged me.
I’m here to take a class on the new content management system (CMS) Nolo just purchased for our redesign. The class has been OK so far. We had a few technical difficulties yesterday and now we’re scrambling a bit to catch up so class is starting a half hour early tomorrow.
I’m eating too much junk food. One of the strategies people employ to keep you alert in technical training environments is to give you unlimited access to coffee, candy, cookies, chips and soda. I don’t even want that stuff half the time, but it’s hard to resist when I’m tired and we’re heading into the seventh hour of CMS configuration exercises.
Um…what else? I bought some pretty paper yesterday. Check these out:
The prettiest sheet of flat paper I bought was this flowery, swirly print with gold shimmery stuff on it, but I couldn’t find it on the Paper Source web site which is really too bad because I swear, even if you’re usually indifferent to paper you would fall down on your knees and worship this particular piece of paper if you saw it.
