Oooh, Shiney!

Spent the last few days decompressing, depressing, and getting the last bits of my last job out of my system. The worst part about this sort of thing isn’t what you did, but what you hadn’t done. Or wanted to do but were unable to do. The unfulfilled and the incomplete. Kind of like when you have a breakup, and you’ve got the things you should have said stuck in your head for a while.

I’ve also had to go through all that lovely paperwork with the ESC and the last of the end-of-job paperwork.

Thankfully, we had in invitation to visit Steve & Merrie for dinner and to borrow from the collection[1].

Dinner was awesome[2]. Thanks to Steve, I now have a very large quantity of music on loan. The box of music[3] I’m importing will keep the show fed for months. And as a bonus, the kids love the Invader Zim toys Steve and Merrie gifted to us.

We’re all very grateful – thanks!

[1] I would like to take a moment to point out that Steve doesn’t collect, so much as he curates. And it is an amazing and awesome collection of music, books, art and other things. I am honored to be able to borrow from it.

[2] If you are in or near Downtown Raleigh, Buku is absolutely AMAZING. Good beer selection, great food, fantastic service, and reasonable prices.

[3] No, really, a box. This is going to take WEEKS to finish importing and sorting this stuff. And the rarities! The hard to finds! The weird, random stuff! I am VERY lucky to be able to borrow these CDs.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
