Rain and renewal (i hope, but at least the Insight's windows are closed)

Took A back to NYC, putting S on a plane back home today.... Great goodbye party for him last night! Thanks all who came!

Stefan ate the last three packages of ramen noodles

Just to get them out of the way of his re-organized cabinets. That's dedication.

Our home is being converted to German efficiency.

Fri: Gave a Drupal talk, had an excellent early evening out, and ate a pretzel from the best sandwich stand in the state

Went to The Franklin Café with C and J - first time seeing her in a very long time - and had a pretty good meal off their mimeographed, provided-by-request vegetarian menu and good conversation, though i think i talked too much. Resolved to do meet again, if we don't all take a trip to Chicago together or something.

Following a Drupal talk i had a lot of fun giving to a small group at Mass General Hospital, i stayed in South Station out of the rain. (Before the talk, i stayed a bit at Encuentro 5.)

To Jamaica Plain for a Race and Equality in Latin America

Went into Boston with Stefan today. MBTA commuter rail faretakers accepted my expired 12-ride commuter rail pass (after six months!?) without comment. I may consign them collectively to a lesser layer of hell.

MC: Dorothea Manuela
All workers must be organized!
No more borders.

Bill Fletcher

- recommends two volume Invention of White Race
- Racial denial in Latin America, from Cuba to Venezuela. If white folks in US said we are all African, we'd be 3/4 to socialism. People can say the same in Venezuela and it doesn't mean quite as much.
- Land

Watched City of Angels and Romeo + Juliet, worked through some bugs in my Ubercart modules

Both good movies, but sad... probably would have cried if not distracted just enough by the code i was working on. :-P

And probably would have cried over the code without the distraction of the movies.

Preceded by dinner, also with R + M, at a pretty good and affordable Mexican restaurant, that was wonderfully flexible with making black bean enchiladas with avocado and vegetables instead of cheese and cream. Somewhat small serving size made up for by the unlimited tortilla chips and hot salsa.

That's all last night.

Kasey's awesome art

Big day for friends. Still at the Cape.

For Manda.
For Andrew- coming back from New York after a great time with everyone... and claiming his guitar.
Oh, and for all of us on the book-- a real live contract for signing!

Got to catch up with a couple friends on phone and skype; more good food by Andrew courtesy

Finally heard from D today!

My bowl of 5-alarm salsa fell off the overcrowded kitchen table while i was out throwing the compost into the compost pile. I pulled what i could off the top of the dirty floor and broken glass, and ate it.

I really hate to waste food.

Only had to spit out one mouthful when i felt a suspicious crunch.

Talked to M on Skype.

Hanging with Andrew: St. Patrick's day in Boston; salad and lentil leftover special at home

For Saint Patrick's day, and to celebrate the book deal becoming official:

Went down Route 9 and found a parking space just off Stuart? street (or the one after it) in the theater district.

A beer at Jacob and something's and then i remembered i had to get my developer talk in for DrupalCon San Francisco and i went back to the car to do that.

Andrew hit some other places, found me back at the car (cell phone had gone silent mode somehow) and after i finally posted, we went off again, to find every place shutting down at half past 11!

Talking day

[2010 February 18, Thursday]

Good phone conversations (walk Zelda to the post office and back) and dinner with Vafa and Andrew.

I keep bringing up the disturbing question for me of how people i know, people from good families, can be joining the Facebook group "People on welfare should have mandatory drug tests"

After three decades of welfare retrenchment.
After six decades of a failed alleged war on drugs.
In the middle of a recession that should be reminding most of us that we could become poor quite easily also.
