1. Laura Veirs played an excellent show at Cafe Du Nord last night to a bewilderingly small crowd. I don't know where everyone else was, but I do know this: That is a lady who really enjoys ocean-based imagery. Maybe she used to be a mermaid.

2. There's a developer who just moved into my cube row who seems to get a lot of people stopping by his cube to discuss bugs or whatever. This is fine -- people coming together! solving problems collaboratively! -- except that one of them is the Shouty Chinese Dude. I can't work with headphones on; music distracts me. This is not a big huge deal, as the discussions typically don't last long, but I wanted someone to be aware of it. That someone is you. Feel special.
