Go forward in time to January 2002.
Nice pre-Xmas dinner with the Kromlech dudes last night. Oralia and myself made a pretty good spaghetti with artichokes, and Leo made mole and tinga. Had a very good time.
We went to watch Monsters, Inc. tonight. Fantastic. I just love Pixar.
Saturday: While Oralia went to her weekly rehearsal, I went book shopping. Got a book on Beethoven as described by his contemporaries, including Liszt, Mozart, and others. Pretty cool. Also got a book on piano tuning. Afterwards, went to another book store and got a really cool book for Oralia on dance photography by Lois Greenfield.
Sunday: Kromlech rehearsal in the afternoon, quite productive. Afterwards, delicious dinner of enfrijoladas.
Today: Fixed a bug with the smart placement modes in Sawfish. It still looks like this code needs a careful audit, hmmm.
Happiness is finding a good, cheap little restaurant three blocks away from the office.
Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico, and bizarrely the University was closed, so Oralia and myself had to go back home in the morning. Sigh.
Sigh. The Well-tempered Clavier / Trevor Pinnock / Archiv (harpsichord), 800 pesos. WTC / Rosalyn Tureck / Deutsche Grammophon (piano), 700 pesos. Decisions, decisions. Why are classical CDs so goddamn expensive?
My mom is back from California; she brought us a couple books, a very nice fleece sweater for Oralia, and a kick-ass pair of warm slippers for myself.
Had a beer with Charly, Natzin, and Daniel in the evening at a bar in Coyoacán park. Charly is assembling a pretty powerful machine for doing audio stuff under Linux. And Daniel is looking for a buyer for a violin; I am interested.
Sawfish focusing seems to be working fine. It is fun to hack Lisp stuff, way more pleasant than C. Havoc pointed out some issues with my pending patch for Bonobo, though; will have to investigate further with Keith Packard.
Now, I am going to fix window placement. Dum de dum.
Oralia and myself celebrated our 5-month wedding anniversary by going to the little Italian restaurant about which Joakim had told us. It turned out to be pretty good.
