You'd think perhaps the big buzz going around MSDN would be all our fabulous technology. You know, Longhorn. The latest developments in Whidbey. All that.

I'm here to tell you that in the halls of our building, there is a truly Big Buzz. A buzz about how the earth moves under our feet. And moves in these dare-we-say-hideous patterns of corporate patchwork that are too deep for us to understand...Welcome to the new MSDN carpet!

The sandal toes are Josephine's. The Big Boots across from the camera are likely Kevin Ledley's and the other one I'm pretty sure was Laura John, although if I'm wrong about the mystery feet please correct me. I took this photo in a hurry last week as the shock was wearing off.


Another thing I felt photographically important last week was the design of the t-shirt I got from the ever-more-famous Channel 9 folks during their bowling evening, featuring Vic Gundota, bowling mastermind. I represent it here for your amusement.

The Channel 9 folks  also gave me this bowling doll which went above and beyond goofy. He reminds me of a rather bleached Elvis doll repurposed. Note the amazing push-button, arm-swinging action. I keep feeling that is a metaphor for working here, but I refuse to wear my hair like his.


There's no graceful way to recover from that,  is there? More later!
