Linux Caffe

I had coffee - well, hot chocolate and green tea - with Simon at Linux Caffe. David and Seneca were there, which meant that I not only got to donate my Linux Journal issues, but also lend my molinillo to David for his chocolate-making experiments. We had a lot of fun listening to Seneca show off the awesome use of Trac to keep track of their recipes and other cafe-related information (in a version control system! with request tracking!). We also chatted about education, service, phone systems, databases, and other cool things.

We stayed late into the night, two or three hours past the official closing time. David brought out some brown rice tea and slightly confused croissants. I left a hefty tip - more than what I paid for the chocolate and the tea, actually - but hey, I believe in what they're doing and I think they're really cool. =) Besides, that hot chocolate was really nice. Way better than Second Cup, in my book.

On the way back to GH, we ran into other people we knew. Simon introduced me to Roger, whose home renovation has turned out to be quite a project. I ran into Steve, too, and did a few quick introductions. =)

I love conversation and the company of friends. Hooray for random acts of kindnesses and a wonderful universe!
