Why I must never take vacation

Having returned to work after nearly two weeks off, I walked by a new Greek place yesterday with my friend Hughes and his wife Alex. We each took a sample bit of shoe leather (er, gyro) on a toothpick. Maybe 60 seconds later, we’d walked into a difference restaurant, and I noticed that I was idly picking my teeth. When I saw that Alex also had a toothpick, I started to freak out a little. Where the hell did I get this toothpick, I thought, and how come she has one, too??

Cripes. I was very much in the Office Space “I wouldn’t say I’ve been missing it…” zone. I’m on the mend, but remind me not to make any big personal/product decisions for a while.

    Take a longer rest until you get really bored.
    That’ll be your afterburner for the half quarter of this year.
    Anything else make no sense!
    Crazy People!

    Just last week you told me that you’d push for 64bit Flash to support my 64bit IE. Honest! ;-p

    That’s an old Greek restaurant parlor trick. Lot’s of people fall for it. :)
