“Gordon: Ian is the coolest person in existence.
Matthew: I concur. I wish I were Ian, and so does everyone I know.
Gordon: Not everyone, surely.
Matthew: I tell you only what I know to be true, my friend. Every person with whom I am acquainted desires nothing more than to be him.
Gordon: I can understand that, as he is at least several orders of magnitude cooler than I.
Matthew: I propose that we buy Ian a beer.
Gordon: A capital idea! It is the least we can contribute to the life of this fine man who represents the acme of all human qualities generally considered to be exceptional.”

This week has been a rough one as I'm sure you can imagine. The ops side of things has been mostly unrelated to the fun that the devs are having but still not a hell of a lot of fun. We pulled through though and I learned a lot.

So tonight I got to have some fun. I went out with gordonmessmer, orewaanpanman and his roommate (who has a journal, but I don't know what it is, guys?) to the Stumbling Monk and had a Lindeman's Peche Lambic. If you've not tried it, it's basically a beer with peach in it. Very similar to cider.

Then this happened.

After that we stopped in at the Piroshki shop at Ian's vigorous behest. We then walked over to Vivace because of Gordon's wild tales of fabulous Macchiattos. Turns out he was right actually. We then set off in search of Top Pot donuts. After a couple of phone calls we actually managed to find it without getting lost. Donuts in hand we sat and chatted for a while whilst consuming the aforementioned confectionaries.

A short while later we said our goodbyes and Gordon and I stopped in at Dick's where he had a cheeseburger. I'd had enough to eat for the evening so I settled for the conversation :)

And now I'm home. I think I'll go play some Shadow of the Colossus.
