once again i didn't set foot outside of the office today. for lunch i brought along a can of soup, heated it up and ate it straight from the pot sitting in front of my computer. all day i was debugging. there was a lull when i fixed all the bugs at one point (of course more were eventually discovered), and i actually asked for more work, something uncharacteristic of me, my newbiness still fresh. katrinka finally gave me a set of office keys (i proved my trustiness by not stealing any equipment the first few weeks of employment). my total number of keys that i carry with me went from a single house key to now 4 keys. i probably won't carry the office keys with me all the time, maybe i can buy one of those false key rocks and hide it outside, but somehow i think a plastic stone would look out of place sitting on the front steps of our office building.
there was no package waiting for me when i got back home tonight, but there was a surprise nevertheless: jose miguel finally e-mailed me, confirming that my father and i were all set with our costa rica schedule and he sent me the itinerary. with just 4 days before we leave, we finally figure out what we're going to do down there. now i can focus on packing, which won't be very much, besides my camera equipment and computer and some clothes, there really isn't anything else i want to bring.
julie came over for dinner, she made jambalaya (with chicken sausage), i made some sweet corn. by the time the food was ready, 24 had already started. not sure if julie's getting into the show, but how do i tell her that on tuesday nights i must watch 24? i've already missed a bunch of gilmore girls episode, i'm hoping to catch them when they repeat. 24 and alias are now the only two shows i follow religiously. occasionally i'll add a little enterprise into my tv diet, or law & order: special victims unit, but i don't know when it's on anymore. a lot of serious shows, i'm not much for comedy these days, me and my adult viewing habits.
