My wonderful Meg kitty.

(no subject)

Yesterday marked two important events for Tilde. I was trolling Craigslist and found a couch and chairs being given away. I snagged the chairs after work and checked that the couch was still there. Later that evening, D- and I grabbed the couch. In the spare time around the event, I managed to set up one of the racks and filling it about half full. When I get home, I'm sure I'll exercise some more of my tetris-fu.

At work, we had our usual weekly product meeting, but our project lead is out on vacation, so one of the programming leads ran the meeting. He's a neat guy, but he's the sort who you can't have a short conversation with. Instead of asking you a question like "Do you have a pen?", he'd tend to say "Do you have a pen? I really need a pen. For some reason, HR ran out of them and I need to sign these documents and I've been looking all over the place, but I can't find a pen. I don't know why they'd let the cabinets run out of important office supplies like that. It's really odd that they'd do that...". In general, while I'm talking to him, I fight the urge to say the answer as soon as he asks a question. He inevitably has a story to follow and I'd prefer not to be rude and cut him off.
