Learned a new Spanish negotiation trick this week: when being asked to provide something, say “yes of course” then talk about the weather, the place you are in, show the other person around your building, and not mention the requested thing anymore. Repeat on each request until requester is out of time and needs to fly back to another part of the country.

Next milestone is to actually be the applier of the trick instead of the applied-to-er.

Two – I have to find a way to not have my working day end past midnight.

I’ve been meaning to self-glorify extensively by listing books I’ve read over the past few years – as the subway has made me rediscover reading with a vengeance – but for now I just want to say that I really enjoyed reading “Cat’s Cradle” by Kurt Vonnegut, and “Slaughterhouse five” was not bad either, though slightly less riveting.

Congratulations to Jeroen and Ingrid, who were joined by Jasper during the past week !

Looking forward to some friend’s 30th birthday party this weekend, I expect to see a lot of people I haven’t seen since university.

Also, good news ! I am going to LCA ! I will be presenting Flumotion, of all things. I am probably the only one accepted with three rejection mails in the INBOX as well, which is amusing. I really would have liked to do a presentation on Savon at least, since I think the marriage of Subversion and System Administration is A Good Idea, but obviously I’m biased. I guess I will need to draw my motivation for a release of it from another source of dark energy instead.

Now let’s see if my food-deprived brain will be able to put itself to sleep…
