The hot chocolate at Linux Caffe (Grace and Harbord Sts.) never fails to perk me up. Yesterday was no exception even though it was a day particularly in need of hot chocolate.
David (the proprietor) received a whole bunch of free books and a number of free T-shirts from Apress. The shirts were adorable! They read "Every time Linux boots, a penguin gets its wings." I batted my eyelashes at David and he very kindly let me have one. =) I'm so hacking it.
Seneca was there, hacking away as always. Mike Fletcher was at the same table. Ian Garmaise had briefly introduced us at the other night's DemoCamp afterparty, but I hadn't really had a chance to talk to him. It was great discovering mutual friends: Chris and Emily, whom I know through tango and renaissance dancing and whom he knows through jazz. He knows a bunch of interesting people, and I'm looking forward to meeting them at a party at his place on Saturday. Whee!
In retrospect, it was good that I ended up over there for hot chocolate. =) Life works out one way or another.
