…leavin’, on a jet plane

…and it couldn’t come at a better time. as i look out of my office window, it’s SNOWING again… it’s already +9C in San Jose. Going up to 18-20C today.

If I get to the airport extra early, will I get to NoCal any faster?

Ready to Rock and Roll

OK, so I probably won’t be rocking, but there might be a little rolling.

Everything’s set for the trip to WWDC. Got the new biz cards, airline eTix confirmed, hotel room waiting, WWDC eTicket confirmed. Good to go.

Had a minor snag when trying to get screenshots of ALOHA, but reverted to an older version and all was well. I’ll throw together a quick powerpoint on the flight to San Jose.

This is going to be a blast. I’ll be taking the digital camera, so should hopefully be posting pix live from WWDC (via airport, from the show floor…)


Perspective is a Good Thing

Had our ultrasound yesterday, and got to see Sprout for the first time. Very cool. The kid actually turned to look into the “camera” (I’m sure it was thinking something like ‘what the hell is all of that noise?’)

Had some embryology flashbacks – vertebrae, bones… Saw 10 fingers and toes. 2 arms. 2 legs. Just one head. That’s about the level of detail you can get out of these things, but it’s a good, solid start.

The tech said she knew the sex, but we didn’t want to know. (thanks a LOT, Dave… so much for denial…)

I guess this makes it official. It’s really happening. Very VERY cool.

And the most immediate effect of this, is that it puts the political crap that’s going on during my Day Job into perspective. It really doesn’t matter what some clowns think (or don’t think) or do (or don’t do). None of that stuff really matters.

It’s all about Sprout.
