there are four kinds of people on my bus to work: really old people, really sick people, really young rich people, and asian people. i love them all. one of the really old ladies whispers in my ear each time i get off the bus with, "Amazoooon dot coooom..." in a very knowing, very creepy way. I say, "Yup," and smile to her like a friend. She says, "You have a nice day." I say, "Oh, thank you very much, you have a good day too!". And that is our morning ritual.
She, and the really sick people, are coming home from a night spent at Harborview, one of the countries best, and scariest, hospitals. It's old Art Deco, in the same style as Pac Med (where I work), and the Seattle Asian Art Museum. Art Deco covers the beautiful, the sickly, and the computer geeks. How beautiful and appropriate.
They're trying to make me stay at work. They gave me 1100 shares of company stock at Thursday's closing price of $30.75. Funny thing is, just two days ago, I broke the website. I made it so that a lot of the content in the center column of the gateway was missing. It was only gone for about an hour, but that hour was worth over $2000. Oops. Hey, why don't you give him lots of stock to make him feel better. Okay.
I've bought another website, which is taking most of my online attention these days. You can see it here. Hey buster! I've finally found a project that combines my interest in writing and web design and communities and etc. If you're interested in finding out more about it, subscribe from the main page. Anyway, it's not as exciting talking about it as actually making it, so I won't. Unless you want to know, and in that case write to me.
