I hab a code in mah node.



Luckily, it’s not in my fingers.

Unfortunately, because we’re on a huge deadline for work, I had to go into the office today, which I did. And the work got done, although it took way longer to do than I expected, and it left my poor boss feeling very bad for me when she hopped online later at night to find me still toiling at the office.

But I made it home in time to pick up some chicken soup from Zorba’s (my answer to homemade chicken soup is to buy it from the local Greek restaurant), since Rudi had eaten at a meeting, before Castle came on.

And unless I feel supremely better tomorrow, after my 8 a.m. conference call with India, I’m planning to head back to bed and stay home from work.

Because our beta delivery is Friday and I need to be back to fighting shape by then.

Is it May yet?

the ’80s
posted by soe 2:01 am

I’ve been thinking recently — probably as a result of singing along with a lot a cappella music recently — that I may need to put together a mix cd/playlist of fun ’80s tunes.

I’m leaning toward the ones that get you up and dancing around the living room — Madonna’s “Borderline” and Cindy Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” spring to mind — for an initial compilation. But if I come up with a sufficient number of ballads — the ’80s did have a great selection of power ballads, after all — I’m not above making a second set of songs.

Anyone have any favorites they think I should include?
