Friday was work. Work work work. I ran a few meetings with my developers. We're trying a new system to triage out notes. Notes are like sticky notes that QAers leave on logs to tell developers waht to fix in bits of the program they change. Up until this week there hasn't been a dedicated person doing triage so the badk log of notes is topping out at about three hundred. Fair amount of work ahead of me.
I replied to some of the older ones after testing them. One guy (an old team mate no less) complained that it took two years to get a response. I nearly bit his head off. He knew that no one had that job until I took it. Plus the thing got fixed anyway. He's just a jerk.
nathan_lounge braved I-90 to come visit beofre he moves across the country next week. We had dinner at Angelic Brewery which was mediocre. Our waitress messed up my cola. The samm'ich Nate had was dull as was mine. The bruschetta appetizer, though, was amazing. At least the conversation was good, Beloit trailer parks and all. We spent much of the time just reconnecting. It was good. We hung out at my place until about 1am. I hate that we lost better touch. I turned into a putz junior year and he found lots of other people that were less putzy. :)
That evening ended well. :)
Saturday I spent time with lady_fox until she went to work. We did laundry, little cleaning, little TV adn cuddling. A quaint Saturday afternoon between a couple. Nothing big but the sort of thing you fight wars for. I spent the rest of the afternoon (I've been convinced to buy a bike), evening (very good dinner at Campus somethingerother Biyrani indiand food place on Regent)and weeeeee-hours of the morning for Sev and aetrix9 and lady_fox at the end. We went to Brocach irish pub last night to listen to a celtic-punk band that kicked ass muchly. Their fiddler was fucking hot and good with her instrument, though I was far too sober to appreciate the few songs she sang.
Much of that evening was spent drinking (lightly) and flirting (heavily) with aetrix9 (in the sense that we occasionally groped and heavey kissed in public, terrible I know). I think we perplexed the group behind us. See, Sev is pretty much her primary and she my Secondary? That doesn't sound right... other woman? Eh, either way she and I are involved. So there kissing and groping was abound and between everyone, much to the public's astonishment. When Fox showed up later that night it got even funnier. Everytime someone had to to pee we rearranged seats and cuddled the nearest person (with the exception being between me and Sev). Silliosity reigned.
I need to stop driving for nights out. The last three or so times we've all gone out, I end up driving and not drinking. The benefit being, though, that I'm learning how to loosen up and just have a good time without being consumingly self-conscious. I may require that, if I continue to be the driver, that the drunkies have to buy my sodas that night what with gas going to cost the remainder on my left arm and a nipple in the coming weeks.
The night ended well, albeit kind of awkwardly. The PG ending is that I took aetrix9 home while lady_fox took Sev home so we could all sort things out around 1.5am. Fox and I were asleep in each other's arms two hours later.
I'm still getting into the swing of the open relationship. Being arund both Fox adn Aetrix is strange especially since I only have one hand to go between the two. How does one kiss a person without the other left to feel left out? I believe I'm a little too worried about this as we have all discussed these things. It doesn't have to be equal, necessarily, just not revoked. An important lesson to learn but difficult to reconcile with the years of monogany preceeding today. It's all still good though. Very good.
Now, that was a damn dull rundown. So, have some icons.
Now, I'm off t the gym to beat the snot out of the bag. Then get dinner (I'm craving a veggie sub) or something. I'm free all day otherwise and will likely be about the apartment and on AIM when I return. You should call me! :)
God damn my life is awesome.
