Fjordlands, macaroni, and chinstraps

Those are kinds of penguins. There will be a test later.

My co-workers in San Francisco have discovered these pages . . . they gave me a hard time about them last night. (The guys in Boston have pretty much known about them all along -- HB admitted to having read them before hiring me.)

Last night turned out to be a Revbox night out -- I guess Jim and Gautam and Victoria and I'm not sure who else put in a lot of hours on the weekend putting together documentation for investors, and were in the mood for a bit of celebration. So we hit Grumpy's for beer and Figaro's for Italian. I'm all in favour of doing that kind of thing a lot more often.

Hump time for the exercise program. I'm a little more than a month in and have run out of momentum from my intial drive. Now, I think, is when we figure out how hard it will be to keep it going this time.

``It's all good.''

Track of a spreading meme: the first person I ever heard use the expression it's all good was Jenny Reed, at NASFiC last August. I asked around a bit afterward, but nobody I knew had heard it before or had any idea where it came from. (Didn't think to ask Jenny herself, oh well.)

Then I heard Keith Gabryelski using it last week in Boston, and a DJ on the radio a few minutes ago.

That's an odd enough assortment of people I predict we'll all be hearing a lot more of this one in the next year or two. You heard it here first.
