It’s hard to believe that yesterday I was in New York and today I woke up in my own comfy bed. Wayne and I also got married on this day twenty-freakin’-nine years ago! Whaaa??? I seriously have no idea where the time has gone. We don’t really celebrate other than to wish each other a happy anniversary since we’ve been a throuple (as our neighbors call us) for nineteen years now. We don’t really have a date that we became a three because it was such an organic process that just kind of happened as it did. Anyway, we decided to pick the date that all three of us changed our last names to be the same, but I digress.
I have been fighting off the cold that Andrew had but felt pretty good when I woke up and I had another conference to attend! While I was on our trip my friend Cherie introduced me to Lynn who is the organizer of Clojure West and the conference was being held here in Portland. I am interested in functional programming so signed up for the conference. I got dressed and was still feeling pretty good so packed up my laptop and my tea and headed to the Armory downtown.
I just can’t get over how beautiful Portland is. Everything is all blooming and colorful. I was just blown away at the beauty as I walked to the Max. I made it to the conference, got my badge and noticed a flood of people heading downstairs so I followed them and took a seat. Good thing I did because the talk ended up being standing room only. I have no idea what he was talking about though :-/ I went to a couple more talks and definitely understood more of those and then it was lunchtime. I was feeling a big blah but I figured it was because I had skipped breakfast. I headed toward Los Gorditos but felt really guilty about eating there so went across the street to Prasad and got a delicious salad and a carrot apple juice. I was definitely not feeling great though even after eating so decided to head back home and take a nap.
When I got home I had a message from Peter letting me know that stars weren’t showing up on events that were searched though so I decided to work on that instead. I also checked and responded to some email. Alice came over for a while and wanted to hear about our trip so I caught her up on things and before I knew it we had to figure out dinner. I wanted to use quinoa, kale, and chickpeas as the base for whatever we ended up having so found a recipe that sounded good and we went with that. Everyone said it was delicious but I couldn’t really taste it. It was easy to make though.
After dinner I got the star bug fixed and submitted a pull request. I’m feeling really unsure of myself though because I’m sick. Maybe not the best time to try and code?? We’ll see what Peter says tomorrow.
Today I learned that Fortran is just uppercase Java. Heh 🙂
