a little night music

One last item about Dar Williams. On her most recent album she does a cover of "Midnight Radio" from Hedwig and the Angry Inch, as well as a cover of the Fountains of Wayne song "Troubled Times." You know, if you're into that sort of thing.

Moving on.

I'm doing that thing where I just go go go and not think. I would prefer to drink or be asleep, but instead I lit a pumpkin scented candle. The words aren't coming easy. I don't mention it much anymore because it's old hat, but I miss my husband. I only see him Friday nights, Saturday, and Sunday morning every week. He stayed home last Thursday to see me after my class and I really needed that. Work has been... tough. We've been on this schedule for over a year now -- 14 months, I think.

Friday is our first wedding anniversary.

It's not that I'm depressed or anything. I'm just in "go" mode. A bit overwhelmed. None of it is very interesting. But that's where I'm at. Clinging to music to keep from floating away. I don't want to take the headphones off.

Happy anniversary!

What george said.

Also, Matt O. is a Certified Scrum Master, and others of us at a certain former organization of yours are now scrum participants. So you have some resources other than white papers and expensive books to help get acquainted with scrum if you're interested. I'm just sayin'.

Good luck with the work stuff (and life stuff). I will be on the lookout for a poster of a kitten hanging from a tree branch to inspire you.

Thanks, george and dan. :)

And dan, thanks for putting it in perspective. What we're doing now is really hardcore agile -- 2 week sprints, time-boxed spikes, writing up stories with tasks and points, playing estimation poker... I'll get the hang of it sooner or later.
