Memorable Moments/Randomeness From Day One


We Meet At Last!101_4493New shoes!My new Corto Maltese Swatch watch!


Day one from the KDE Launch Event at Mountain View, CA, and I’m tired, stoked, tired, excited, and… tired. Memorable spots include:

  • Waking up at 3:00 a.m., EST, flying all day, getting stuck in Silicon Valley traffic for 2 hours, etc.
  • Visiting a beautiful, big mall in Santa Clara. My eldest would LOVE this!
  • Walking into an actual Swatch store and buying a new, nifty, unique watch. (I used to wear no watch unless it was a Swatch but haven’t had one in a few years. Love them!)
  • Finding the new version of my old Nike Prestos and buying a pair!
  • Finally getting to meet and talk to Adriaan, after having worked with him for 4+ years.
  • Drinking a sip (a really wee sip) of Adriaan’s scotch (I think).
  • Eating peanut butter cookies that Adriaan made for us all, and drinking milk with my fellow KDE brethren, late into the night.
  • Getting my KDE business cards (2 boxes, mind you!!) (thanks again, Thiago!!!) =:)

Looking forward to more fun at Days 2 and 3 at the KDE4 Launch Event.

Special thanks to Jerry Gartner for the pics, since I sucked too much to actually take any thus far. =:/
