"Here he comes!" or "There he goes!"

All things considered yesterday was a success. I managed to navigate through the city (albeit after a desperate phone call to fallenpegasus,) and picked up MarkB who was looking decidedly tired and rumply after a straight flight from Germany. Due to some time conflicts lunch at Pixar has been cancelled (le sigh,) but it was a fun day nonetheless. It was a beautiful couple of hours and after a bit of a mixup where we went over the Oakland Bay bridge and then had to make another phone call we managed to successfully return back to the middle school where Lisa was waiting for us.

The first major order of business was to get MarkB succesfully fed and watered. He requested Mexican (apparently latino food is a bit of a rarity in New Zealand,) and later we had ice cream at Mitchells. It was fun to roam around and see a few of the sights.

He truly didn't have that long of a layover and before we knew it we were heading back to the airport. We dropped him off, (poor, poor boy.) and I quipped to him that I'd see him the next day.

Lisa and I then headed to watch the waves roll in at the beach. As is its wont the weather had turned nasty so it was really something to watch the water come crashing in. It was stormy and waves were black and white and the air was thick with potential. Cue the stinging rain and progressive darkness and we bolted back for the car and then drove for home.

Note: Lisa lives a hop skip and a jump from a thai place.

Dinner was excellent and I honestly don't remember falling asleep.

today. Lunch with gigiss!

    I miss the long form writing I used to do with my life. I should get back to it. Is anyone still here?

    Got a notice that if I don't do a post every so often they'll delete my LJ account. I'd rather that not happen.

    In no particular order: 10. So?!! Well, the very short version is, I didn't get the job from Pixar. 9. Longer version? The slightly longer…
