sxsw has been going on this weekend. i did not voluntarily participate in any shows, except for one: explosions in the sky. and by ‘voluntarily’ i mean that i was forced to participate in 3 afternoons of horrible, awful music from a couple of venues outside my back office door. i’m not even kidding when i tell you that on friday, it was so bad, the dogs started howling. ha ha!
i have a couple of friends in town this weekend for various festivities and it’s been a lot of fun hanging out and walking about the city. last night, some of us participated in a really ridiculous gmail chat.
dan: howdy howdy
me: i’d like to welcome you all to this meeting
