Goodnight everyone. I am going to go buy Medal of Honor: Frontline for the PS2.

I just thought of something:
I believe that the ability to be funny is good, but the ability to see the humor in things is even better.

I read yesterday that Steelcase, the furniture company, was working on a cubicle system with “stop lights.” so you can announce whether you are busy, taking visitors, etc. Kinda cool.

I have had the best meal of the year at Park Avenue Cafe over the weekend. It’s in the Double Tree hotel off Michigan and Emily’s parents took us out to brunch on the day after Eddie Wu’s graduation from Med School. It was a cross between tapas, dim sum and all you can eat. Imagine an endless supply of gourmet food brought to your table. Things like, roasted pork belly on Moroccan forbidden black rice, eggs benedict in the shape of a muffin, morel mushrooms with tender lamb and creme brulee in an egg shell. Yum. Not to mention the desert cart. They even made vegan food specially for Emily. That place is now on the top of my list of best meals in Chicago. Just beware, the first glass of OJ is free, but the next glass will cost you $5.

I’ve been using AtomZ to supply the search to my site. Of course, no one really uses it, but AtomZ has improved their engine and it looks like as my site grows, I hope it works.

Oh sweetness. My T-1 is up.

Okay, just about to head out. I have to stop by Ikea to replace my kitchen rug that is too long, like it reaches out into the hallway long. The “pad” is turning out nicely, I wish I had an Internet connection, but since I don’t even have a phone line (and I don’t plan to get one), I will have to wait until they give me my portion of the T-1 line. It should be sometime tomorrow. You guys have to check out the LCD projection screen and the killer view.

There is such a dichotomy of how people represent their ideas. Me? I’m the visual guy, I like having my context and relationships of ideas represented in diagrams and some other visual form than just a spreadsheet. I’m a show me kind of guy. It’s so hard for me to understand what people mean when they stick it in a spreadsheet.

So I had to be at work for a 7am meeting and I was 20 minutes late, dispite the fact that I left at 6am. What do you have to do to beat the traffic? When I stepped out the door at 6, the radio said it was 15 minutes from Loop to O’Hare, but by the time I was in my car and on the highway, they said it would be 45 minutes to O’Hare. Crazy.

My first day of work after moving into my new place. What a view I have at home. It was incredible, just staring at the Chicago skyline as I drifted into sleep. I took pictures of the view and I’ll get them up as soon as my Ethernet connection at home is set up on the 24th. Thank yous for the move go out to Peter Hsin, Fil Tsai and most of all, Emily.
