(if you're wondering what the above is about, so am i. i'd heard of jonah and the whale before, pinnochio and the whale, captain ahab and the whale (man, whales got such a bad rap in literature), dogs inside of snakes, snakes inside of airplanes and airplanes inside of naval vessels (to keep the free association there going) ... but not until now had i heard of ades inside of lions. once i had, though, i just had to get into the $PERSON in $ANIMAL bandwagon. i'm a hopeless follower. no animals were harmed in the making of this blog entry, though the
my sleep schedule has been completely messed up this week. more so than usual. maybe it was the appearance of Zack. he has that kind of effect on people.
i took him to the airport this afternoon as he has a company meeting to be at in Spain. i'm hoping he'll come back to Calgary when he's done there, but that's all still up in the air.

it's this kind of productivity that makes me ponder what would be possible if there was a little villiage somewhere that i and others like Zack could hang out in, enjoy good food and just hack on free software all day. well, enough pondering for now, my time in this
good day, love and hugs.
