    I was cautiously optimistic on that date. I'll never, ever forget this photo they took of Obama in a quiet moment during election night after he won. You could see the gravity of the moment and the task at hand started to sink in on his face.

    Once I saw that photo, I knew that they would fight him tooth and nail to get anything done. And sure enough, that's what happened. It was a significant moment, but not a truly progressive one.

    'Murica is still too not ready for tackling true race issues. I'm very curious to see how the young people will handle it going forward. The world is more muddled and chaotic now.

    I was talking to a colleague to end the work day and referenced this current conversation here. We talked about diversity and how superficial it a can be in many ways currently. There's much work to do.
    Did anyone watch the Obama interview with Letterman on Netflix?

    It was good but it felt like a lot more could have been said.

    My wife likes roses but they're not her favorite flower.

    They also die too quickly.
    I like any flowers, but carnations are my favourite.

    I'm not a flower person at all. I think they are pretty but they would be wasted on me, especially for that reason. So I'm kind of with her on that.

    Flowers on Valentines is cliche. Flowers on any other day makes men thoughtful and romantic. Ladies, we love you with every fiber of our being but y’all drive us nuts.

    Haha. Your statement makes me wonder how 2 of my male friends who are in new relationships (for one of them, this is his first one) are dealing today.

    I buy her flowers all the time, so me getting them today isn't too cliche.

    I was generalizing based on women's perception that men only give flowers on Valentines. I'm the same way, if I have cash on me and I come up to a roadside vendor - I'm buying.

    Well I didn't get roses for the wife because I got some a couple of weeks ago. Plus I discovered what a scam these stores run. They double the price of the flowers for Feb 14, no thanks. I got her 4 boxes of her favorite Belgian chocolate - they were much more than the flowers but I think worth it since they had to be imported!

    Carnations and Alstomerias are quite heavily trafficked in our household.
    Roses too.

    So work has been very busy and very very frustrating the last couple of weeks.
    We seem to be taking two steps forward but then taking about 5 steps backwards.
    Looks like finally we may have all the players assigned by end of next week to get this project moving forward.
    It doesn't help when we have to deal with at least 4 internal sites - Minneapolis, Boston, California and Costa Rica and on top of that have to deal with about 20 odd suppliers around the world to make this project successful.

    The pressure is on to deliver the first 30 UPNs by end of March. And travel on other regular projects doesn't show any sign of letting up.

    I am just tired.

    Yeah. I'd like to try it for sure. I'd get the silver version as the other colors don't do it for me.

    My wife has had a flu lingering for more than two weeks now. The worst is over but it's that last lingering bit that won't go.

    I'm somehow immune to this flu. I have no idea why.

    Be thankful that the flu doesn't like your current views on humanity.

    Hope your wife feels better soon.
