Of Auspices and “Other” Spices

San Francisco is sunny and warm in March.  Chances are, where you are, it’s not.  Haw haw!

We’re here, and we’re settled in.  Two out of six light bulbs may be burned out,  but our hotel room is notably devoid of zebra stripes this year, and there’s a print of Boticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” on the wall.  Things appear to be looking up in 2011!

Or maybe I spoke too soon… We have two beds and three people, and because I’m related to him, I’m sharing a bed with Mark.  This decision was followed by Mark’s revelation that he didn’t bring pajamas, only something that he calls his “birthday suit.” His birthday isn’t until January, though, so I haven’t the foggiest idea what he could be referring to.  I guess I’ll find out tonight.

In older times, when a group of men went on a voyage together, their ship was christened using a bottle of champagne.  When three game developers share a room together after consuming a lot of meat during the day, their room is christened in an entirely different sense.  Lewis is getting light-headed due to lack of oxygen, and even Venus is refusing to meet my eyes.

We’ll have a surprise for you tomorrow! No, not that kind of surprise – you’ll just have to tune in tomorrow night to find out 🙂
