Thursday Fun

We went to Thursday at the Square and then to Prespa for a bit. I got to meet another epeep in person. I like it when the virtual world meets the real world - especially when there are drinks, really good pizza, and cheesecake involved. Thanks Zack.

Bowie

SATURDAY, MAY 22:
Voicemail message. "Hi Rachel, I have an extra ticket to see David Bowie on Tuesday. The seats are in ROW G."

Hmm.. Let me think about this for a nanosecond.

SEVERAL NIGHTS IN THE EARLY 1980s:
I stare at the giant poster of a man with two different eye colors. Downstairs my teenage brother blares Bowie on my parents' stereo.

Those nights forever instilled a love for Bowie in my heart(and I suspect my sister's). The Laughing Gnome still reminds me of being a little girl with a big brother who always enjoyed having a good chuckle.

TUESDAY, MAY 25:
His voice resonated through Shea's like nothing I've ever heard live. For 2 hours he played a set that included songs from the seventies through the present. My favorite hightlight - when Gail Ann Dorsey put a whole new spin on the Freddy Mercury vocals in Under Pressure.

Definitely a night to remember.

Look Outside

It's so beautiful out and I'm stuck inside, not even accomplishing anything. Today isn't a day to be productive. It should be spent laying in the grass. Alas...

Electronic Voting - Be Frightened

I received this email from a former co-worker yesterday.

"Apparently there is only one company in the US that is certified to inspect
and approve electronic voting hardware (which is how >50 million people will
vote in November)."

The company is Wyle Labs, a subcontractor that my company has been forced to work with. They are the MOST INCOMPETENT people with whom I have ever interacted. They are responsible for providing us with data for some of our Navy projects, and have f**d it up every single time. Sometimes they give us the wrong data format (even though we've worked with them for 3 years), sometimes they give us data months late, and in one recent experience, the IT person could not understand how to place files on our ftp site.

For more info on electronic voting, check out this link
