the other night we went out on the town a bit after dinner. not knowing where to go we did what we usually do and asked the nearest bunch of young women who looked like they were heading out for a night of fun themselves. they tend to know the Good Places(tm). in this case they were dressed up in faux hawaiian gear: an obvious tip off! they were heading to a hawaiian night party at a local club, informed us it was going to be great and invited us to join them.
and so we wound through the streets of dublin in the dark following these three laughing and generally wound up girls to the destination only to arrive and be asked by the bouncer for our student id cards. apparently it was assumed that we were students by our tour guides. unfortunately i'm not a student these days and so had to retreat back down the street.
however, there was a continuous parade of people in hawaiian gear marching down the street and virtually none of them knew where they were actually supposed to end up at. so i became an impromptu traffic cop directing people down the proper side streets. i received a few more invites to join them, including a couple of girls who insisted that the bouncer wouldn't remember my face and would let me in if i was with them. i didn't feel like ditching my fellow kde'rs nor did i feel like getting bounced at the door a second time in the same night and had to decline despite their persistence. tom chance was nice enough to offer me his student id for the night but that seemed a bit cheesy, not to mention i'm not sure i'd get by with his photo on it. =P
i'm back in saddle today at 09:00 working on various things. today is blocked out for some work with our communications team and the rest is for development on icon management. screenshots tonight perhaps.
tons of hacking is happening in the coding rooms, but due to my wireless being more dependable than my wired networking and there not being wifi in the coding rooms i'm relegated to the quieter conference rooms. however, quiet is good.
... and if you haven't caught it one of the other blogs yet, kde made an appearance on the t.v. show "heroes" the other night. neat.
