Today's goodness

A fabulous demo: Yes, it got its own entry. But it has still left me in a better mood than I have been in a while. I'm keyed-up, in a good way.

Anticipation of another: Fingers crossed, tomorrow is the MIT Midway, and it's high-stakes. Carolingia is very dependent on MIT, and the results of this demo will largely determine whether we get to continue using it. So I'm hoping for good results. (And for managing to actually *retain* some of the ones we attract, which is another and more difficult problem.)

Good pizza and champagne: Today was the official move-in lunch for the company, with pizza from Flatbreads (yay!), champagne for all (yay!) and nice short speeches (yay!).

Game night: You'll probably hear this one periodically, but reasonably regular attendance at a good game night is quite good for my head. I enjoy modern games every bit as much as period ones, and it's been teaching me that, while I'll never be a strategic genius, I am really pretty good at picking up a game and running with it. There's something satisfying in being a quick study.

Being contactable: One side-effect of the move is that I finally have a phone on my desk. Given that cell coverage in this building is iffy at best, this removes another stressor...
