8 Crazy Nights

All week has been heavy work, as anything and everything that happens to the main production system has become my team's problem. I got the be the "hero of the day" today, even though the first time people called I tried to steer them in the right direction without actively getting involved. Instead, I got pulled into an afternoon conference call which THANKFULLY resolved the issue. It merely made me just a little late for a 2-year-old's birthday party.

Even without sapphireblue and the little one around, it was a nice time. I got there just after the singing of Happy Birthday and was able to chat briefly with a bunch of the folks there. I hope the birthday boy likes the gift. He definitely is not as ... emotionally resilient as his cousin. That is to say, he frequently cried, almost at the drop of a hat. But when he did smile, he had an okay time.

Tonight is a Doves concert! YAY! I'll be at the 9:30 Club eventually. Doors don't open until 9 pm.

And in other randomness, I do have a bottomless ear for music. As I flipped channels, I came across a program which showed ice-skating clips with a familiar-looking woman and a tune I immediately recognized as Tori Amos. But only a few seconds, before moving on to clips of other locations and other programs by the same skater. And something about a tour of Japan. One deep Google dive later, I discovered it was Michelle Kwan. She had been skating to the song Winter. Two lines stick out in my head from that song. The first is kind of iconic: Snow can wait, I forgot my mittens ... The second is part of the chorus and I've rambled on enough about nothing much already.

That Winter song is pretty good! I seem to remember having danced to it at some point. Also, I had a huge deja vu reading this post!
