speaking of which, expect some updates from the Appeal project in the next couple of weeks too as we unveil our organizational and early development efforts.
the next 6 months are going to be very busy ones for me and, i expect, most other KDE developers. fun ones, though!
Peyton and i went to the local dollar store the other day to pick up some boxes of Lego to play with. the store is only half a block away and what it lacks in Lego selection it makes up for in pricing. Peyton picked out a couple of boxes of Lego and started chatting with one the stock-girls who ended up giving him a back of 75 army men. talk about your positive reinforcement for being social. we came home and promptly put together a race car and a space ship. Peyton did the vast majority of the construction on his own, with me helping put together the occasional tough piece. when we were done he said that he loves to build things, and on the way home from school today he proclaimed that his favourite toy was Lego. not only does this bring back great memories from my own childhood, but it elicits a certain joy and pride that i can't quite explain. which is fine, because i don't feel the need to. Peyton is a reason enough.
a good friend of mine sent pictures of herself with her new hairstyle: a 20's style bob. this is a wonderful woman who, in all the time i've known her (over a decade now) has had amazingly long, stupidly luxuriant hair. the bob looks wonderful, though, so i guess i'll get used to the change. very Louise Brooks, really.
i downloaded a non-Profit Star Wars fan film on the weekend called "Revelations". i was blown away by the quality of it. it's an amazing testament to what people can create given few resources other than their own imagination and a bunch of technology and then give away.
