Listening to: David Bowie, Station to Station
OK, dammit, I just lost an entire post because my Firefox just crashed. This has been going on for a few days now, Firefox just going tits up and then getting a blue screen when I try to restart the browser. At that point, I pretty much have to restart the computer if I want to get back to surfing.
Thing is, I love - LOVE - Firefox (almost as much as I hate Microsoft). Any tech-heads have a clue what's going on?
If there's a single gripe about this past weekend, it's that the weather was dreary, rainy, and cold. On second thought, since we didn't really want to go anywhere and were... ummmm... more inclined to stay in and get to know one another, in retrospect, maybe the weather was part of a perfect weekend. Perhaps the fog and rain and clouds were just another way in which the Gods and Goddesses smiled on us.
In the midst of our perfect weekend, we were graced by presence of Jim and Michelle (of Genuine and Mrs. G's Peek fame) who made the 90-minute drive from up north to meet Lu and lil' ol' me. Not only did they navigate through the crappy weather but they bought us dinner (and a wonderful bottle of wine) at the local steakhouse. The host got hosted and hosted well.
However, the best part was just getting the opportunity to sit and shoot the shit with Michelle and Jim. They're great people, smart, funny, fun and it was an honor to know they enjoyed our company as well. After dinner we tromped through the rain back to my place and I cracked open another bottle of wine. Michelle was not really drinking (being preggers and all) and Lu is pretty much a tea-totaller (she probably drank 3 - 4 drinks the entire weekend) but Jim and I more than made up for the sober ladies.
A lot of laughs, some blogger gossip (yee haw!), a little brainstorming on the possible blogger conference here in Colorado. By the end of the night, I had to applaud Jim's incredible constitution.
Definitely people I'd love to hang with some more. Jim reminds me of a handful of my party buddies from years ago and it's probably a good thing I live 90 minutes away - otherwise, I'd be in trouble.
