firesea: self-portrait


Went to Boston Pride on Saturday - I can't say how cool it was to see so many people there. The paper said 10,000 people *marched* (of which I was one, yay!) and as many as 80,000 there by the end of the day. And lots of kids and families - gave me hope for the sanity of the world. That doesn't happen often!

And, of course, I ran into Melissa, who I haven't talked to for nearly 3 years. I was half afraid she would hate me, but she was ecstatic - it's really cool to have someone be that happy to see you :). Of course, I'm still a little nervous that things will get bad again, but hopefully we learned something from last time (if nothing else, that living with each other is a Bad Idea (tm)!). And damn but her SO is good eye-candy. Heh.

And I met up with the Poly Boston group, which seems to have a lot of cool people in it. Now I just need to get Jarrett and me a girlfriend ;)

So, stuff. Haven't gotten anything done yet at work today, doubt I will. That whole Monday thing. But I get to go pick up furniture this afternoon, and then we will have a Real Couch and Real Comfy Chair!

Hm. I sense impending lunch.

so I'm a twit

my palm died and came back with all of its data gone. of course I hadn't synced since november, which is my own damn fault. but it gives me an excuse to look around at getting a newer one (the old one is working again, but I'm not sure how much I trust it anymore, and, well...new toy!).

The new Visor Edge looks really pretty, and it comes in metallic red!!! Of course, it's $50 more than the Platinum and is essentially the same machine with a prettier casing.

I saw a Palm 505 a few weeks ago and wasn't too impressed with the screen quality. I really need to go to a store and look at all the screens, but that assumes they actually have them turn-on-able, which seems to not be the case a lot of the time. Maybe I'll find a salesperson and bitch until they turn some on. (How am I supposed to make a good decision if I can't see how good the screen is, anyway?)
