I love getting out of town for the weekend...

Getting a year older today (well, technically I've been getting a year older every day since last year at this time, today is just the day that the counter rolls over and starts counting until next year) and the wife and I are slipping out of town and across the border...

Going into Toronto for the weekend.

Why?

'Cause it ain't here!

Smuggle us back some maple syrup and a couple of real live Canucks if you would, please. Just for kicks and giggles. @=)

I just going to hope we don't get mocked on Saturday for wearing our Red Wings jerseys...

As for smuggling back Canucks, do we want the hockey players (in which case we're going to the wrong end of Canada) or the cute snow-bunny types (in which case the wife will hurt me)?

That second thing. It's worth the pain (and thank the gods my wife doesn't read this).

Heh... to complicated. Just take Jason.A to work and let him entertain the kids with stories of GPO's as if they were dragons.

That's too risky; if the kids have been reading the wrong stuff they'll be seeing the GPO's as heroic dragons and the DBAs as foul thread.
Safer would be to present the sysadmins as evil sorcerors casting foul black magic spells upon the system's GPO defenses to make them betray their purpose and harm the system instead of defending it.


How many others caught the reference to the Dragon Riders of Pern??
Is the inference that Anne McCaffrey is "the wrong stuff"?
Yes, but only in the sense that if the kids had read her it would make the "evil dragons" story seem a bit odd. That of course would be a good thing, since a dragon is a man's best friend and reading McC would give the kids some defence against corruption by stories of nasty dragons because they would know that all dragons are nice, wouldn't it.
Ha! Gotcha.


Hmmm, where do the hapless dev's fit into this story? I don't want to be a villager!!! Or even one of the aristocracy! I want my own white dragon, that's what I want.

Oh, the devs are the harpers of course. What else could we imaginably be?
