nyankoframe: (*gasp*)
It's been a year since I last posted... whoa. Lots of stuff has happened, which probably should go under a cut!

A year in a few paragraphs )

Work has been really quite busy, with the release of Windows 7 SP1 and other projects still in progress. I've sometimes gotten home around 12 midnight and fed Belle and Lillian, then collapsed in bed. Belle had a minor scare in March when she started losing weight rapidly and developed fatty liver. Fortunately, the vet and I - and other friends who sent their love, light and healing purrs/reiki - were able to reverse it, and she's made a full recovery (and gained a bit too!) She is a lot more agile now and likes climbing up on cat trees.

I recently saw The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, which was a 2-hour monologue about Apple, Steve Jobs and conditions in the Chinese factories that produce the vast majority of consumer electronics. Some of the conditions described are literally unspeakable - 14-hour days, 7 days a week, rooms which have beds stacked to the ceiling with about 10 square feet of space, extremely low pay, lack of basic medical care, among others. I will make another post listing some of the things you can do if you believe that this situation should be changed; it's quite Apple-speciifc, but would likely work with other companies as well.

She's really nice, and it was a good lunch. :=) We went to nydc where she ate a salad and I had some pasta with cheese and chicken (yum!), then we crossed the road to Haagen-Dazs where I had an Oreo cheesecake with LOTS of chocolate (^_^) and she had an iced lemon tea.

'Twas good. And I hope to have lunch with her again some time in the near future. Of course, I'm not really thinking of it as a serious relationship, more among friends.

Had lunch with someone who's in the 3rd year, and she's quite a nice person, even though the intro was a bit weird; neither of us had even seen each other before.

Still, it was a nice feeling.
