California, There I Went

I spent the first part of this week in Mountain View for a CSS Working Group meeting. Cindy and I tried to document the atrocities in a photographic manner, but Cindy did a much better job than I did. If you really feel like scarring your retinas, this’ll do the trick (it’s me doing the hula… scary).\
It was a good meeting. Progress was made on a couple of things near and dear to my heart (that will change the way we build web products in a few years, honest), and it was nice to see so many people there. I also go to go to Hobee’s a couple times, and we went and got breakfast burritos at Burrito Real (best since Tucson, and Tucson has the best burritos in the world).\
Unfortunately, I ended up spending 9 hours arguing about CSS, and then another three or four each night writing it, reading it, or answering questions about it (oh, and DOM stuff and plowing through three hundred e-mails every night). So, I was a little worn out when I got home. It was so bad, that Thursday night, I got home around 4:30 in the afternoon, and managed to stay away until 6, when I conked out on the couch. I woke up at 7, and then decided that I really needed to go upstairs and go to bed. I slept from 7:30PM Thursday night straight through to 7AM Friday morning. I needed it.\
Now, I’m home, and I have to get ready for The AJAX Experience, and help get a huge project through QA and out the door very very soon. I foresee more exhaustion in my immediate future.\
In happy news, the boys and I all went out for breakfast while Jen took a nap, and then got haircuts today. They’re so cute when they’re shorn. I’ll try to take some pictures tomorrow if I’m not at work. It’s definitely time for bed…
