last night was one of Those nights. you know, the ones where you’re thinking about who is there, not who isn’t there. saturday, december 21st, being the longest day of the year, meant that it was time for a celebration. so, celebrate we did. we went to the [censored] winter solstice party at [censored].
i am amazed that
- it actually started, and
- it actually finished when it was supposed to.
last night, something happened that couldn’t really happen before the advent of blogs. i met aaron – only when i met him, i thought i already knew him because his face was familiar and i knew a bunch about him from what he has written on his website.
aaron works with adrian (www.djmischiff.com) at a place called Wondermill. reading aaron’s website makes me envious that i’m not working there. it sounds like a really exciting place to be working! being a designer/marketer/geek, it’s exactly what i’m looking for in terms of employment. i am itching to use some of my skills, experience and education for a business like The Mill which seems to have a great grasp on what corporate culture really means, and what it can really mean. anyways, i digress.
it was super neat to meet him after reading his site and poking through photos a bunch. it’s been almost exactly, if not exactly, a year since i met the first person who i didn’t know, yet i read their blog. his name is jim, someone who i now consider to be a good friend. so this blog stuff, i say, is A Good Thing. i now have my own. i didn’t even really consider doing a year ago. i am not much of a writer. things don’t really ever flow for me, at least not the way i hear Writers talk about. i mean, it’s sort of flowing for me now, but this doesn’t count, does it? i am talking about not having those moments of words flowing from my brain. uh, this is a paradox! eeeeeeeeeeek!
a bunch of time ago, i had written this post. i was just about done when i hit the “numlock” button on my keyboard, which doubles up as the “clear” button. the LED was on on the numlock.
- LED on on the numlock = annoying
- clearing your entire post that you’ve spent about 30 minutes on = slightly more than really stupid
haha, whoops. i think this post is better than the last one. i am not certain however, as i have no way of checking. i’m saving drafts of it every few paragraphs now. does anyone else accidently nuke their creative work every now and then? what do you do? do you just leave it, or do you try to create again? is it better, or is it worse?
yes. that’s right. i stole them!
vua ha ha ha ha!
