Tons of stuff to do at work today; magic problems need answers. And Dee and I have to go get our newest cookbook autographed by Alton Brown this evening.
And, even better, the schedule is about to go waaaaaaay up in the air again. It was mentioned that we might push out my current task a few months to get other, more critical things squeezed into the beta.
Yeah, I'm a happy camper... do happy campers run around camp with a chainsaw?
Current Mood: busy

Only if it's a happy "Learn to make art from dead wood with your chainsaw" kinda camp.
Note to Jevim's Cow-orkers: Be afraid. Be very afraid!

De-lurking to introduce myself...
I'm a long time reader of Lisana's journal...from back in maybe 1998 or so. Back then the on-line journal was actually a rare thing (hard to imagine it now!). I think I found her journal through Open Pages, then she linked to yours as well at some point. I was always interested in what you guys were up to, and was disappointed when you both stopped writing!
Fast forward to now, I was just messing around websurfing the other day and happened to remember Lisana and Jevim, did a search and found the livejournals. Great to "see" you again.
I'm a working mom (at a large computer company in Raleigh, NC...you might be able to guess what it is) with two sons (6 months and 2 years) that keep me hopping these days. I'd love to be on your friends list (and Lisana's too, I'm thinking she'll read this comment) if you guys don't mind an old fan hanging around. Of course I would add you guys back too, although I have a pathetic livejournal myself that is seriously lacking in updates, so at least I won't fill up your friends list with boring posts about my kids!
Glad to see you guys are doing well!

Re: De-lurking to introduce myself...
Hi Amy! Jevim just told me to check out the replies to his post here. About to head out the door for the evening but I wanted to say hello and how cool you found us :) I added you as a friend, so you should be able to see more posts from me now. :)
Thanks! I added you guys to my list too.
Hope you got to see Alton last night, I'm a big fan myself. He's the person that taught me how to dice an onion the right way!

Awesome! Yes we did get to see him. I posted a pic and a little bit about last night in

Re: De-lurking to introduce myself...
It's amazing to hear that someone has tracked us down from those old journals. Kinda mind-blowing that either one of our writings was interesting enough to make you search for us later. :-) So of course I'll add you, and let you peek into more entries.
Thanks for letting us know you've found us again, Amy!
You know, I think it's because you guys used such unique names that I remembered you and also was able to find you again.
I think most of the journals I read all those years ago are gone, and it's sort of like I've fallen out of touch with friends, even though I was just an observer.
Thanks for adding me!

You're welcome! I was sure surprised yesterday when Jev called on his way home and said we'd been found. ;)
I think I know the company you talk about... Jev interviewed with them at one point, and I have a cross stitcher acquiantance-friend who also works for them, or contracts for them maybe. When we lived in Roanoke, we'd go down to Raleigh once in a great while so I could get together with some other cross stitchers.
Did you like Raleigh much?(if you got a chance to see much of it!) I've been here about 8 years now. It's a nice place to live, lots of good restaurants that we used to go to before we had kids. (it's no fun to try to eat out with little ones, as I've discovered) I'm originally from upstate NY so the weather here seems very mild to me. Of course, it takes 1/2 an inch of snow to paralyze the city...since folks down here are not used to driving in it.
I work at IBM...not a big secret, somehow I doubt my coworkers are hanging around Livejournal at this moment!

Raleigh seemed nice enough in the times we visited, but I never really took the time to find out much about the area other than basic directions to things we were looking for.
And of course I had interviewed at IBM and got a job offer. I don't think my co-workers read my journal, but just the same I tend to use friends-only entires for things to keep away from their tender eyes, teehee.

Raleigh was nice... much larger then Roanoke, so it was kind of nice to be back in a more metropolitan setting. Sam did his cooperative education stuff up in the Maryland/DC area, so he'd had a taste of the city life, and I grew up in L.A.
Yep, he interviewed with IBM and that was one of the candidates, but I think just the coroporate atmosphere and all wasn't that appealing to him. The company he did co-op work for offered him as much there in Roanoke, and the atmosphere there was a lot more casual and relaxed which he liked, so that's where we ended up starting off.
