I'm a Perl coder living in Bethlehem, PA and working Philadelphia. I'm a philosopher and theologan by training, but I was shocked to learn upon my graduation that these skills don't have many associated careers. Now I write code.

guinea pigs, wine, and friends

[ #31506 ]

Hooray for being home! Gloria and I had a number of good experiences on our trip to Florida, but it's always nice to get home. Some people (mostly those who don't know me very well) laugh when I say that I'm a boring homebody, but it's really true. Since we returned home, Gloria and I have enjoyed lounging around the house, watching the TiVo backlog, and cuddling with our guinea pigs.

Yesterday I had Able Roofers by to give us an estimate (I don't have it in writing yet, but it seems like things will be pretty inexpensive), so I stayed home. Or, rather, I didn't go in on an off day to make up for time away. Today I headed in to the office for the first time in over a week, and it was good. Even when it makes me crazy (as it was not doing today), I like my job, and it was nice to get back to a more concrete work schedule after a week of working just when I had a bit of time.

We've established a pretty ambitious timetable for the rest of the year, and I'm really looking forward to getting to work on making it happen.

After work today, I stuck around Philly and went out for dinner with John. We went to a wine bar around 13th and Sansom, Vintage. The bartenders (whom John knew) were really on the ball, and chose a number of really nice wines for us. We had delicious escargot and I had a good burger. John had short ribs, and they were great.

I gave Helen a call, and I was pretty sure that, over the noise in the bar, she said that she and Steven couldn't make it. I was happy to hear that I had misunderstood, and they showed up a bit later and stuck around for a few glasses of wine and dinner. I just left there a few minutes ago, so for all I know they're still hanging out with John!

It's nice to spend some hanging-out time with friends, and I think Gloria and I should figure out how to do that just a little bit more often. We do alright, but I bet we could do it a bit more. There's always a little more time for friends, right?

For the rest of the night, though, I'm just hoping I can manage to be awake when we get to Bethlehem. Tomorrow is the ABE game, and we've got plenty to do this weekend.
