new environs


the hapax legomenon of the week is "turquila".  this is a drink i made up: a blend of wild turkey 101 and patron silver.

i find myself in a strange place, surrounded by walls and distraught with idle dreams and carrots.  there, on the wall, was a picture of a burger.  the zero remains steady.  the pulley in its rarefied forms.

i’m working as a contractor developing code in scheme.  the sicp rests proudly on the new desk.  i’ve got a laptop!  and my friends are all here now:

 – mr. lobster, who has recovered excellently from the loss of a primary limb.
 – the warbling parrot-head, which always speaks the truth when i’m down.
 – the four blind mice of the rubbery apocalypse
 – mr. hermit crab, type SR 128 – 001X.

and new friends, too:

 – mr. turtle, who can stretch like the fabric of space-time.  he will make for good stress relief.
 – and last but not least, the smoking orange bunny with the k on its forehead.  when i see the smoking orange bunny with the k on its forehead, i know exactly what to do.

they help make the hours go by as i get ready to bumble through a magical journey of lambda inspired refactorings and dodge industry buzzwords with 18 month lifespans.

if you haven’t seen it on the radio, you’re not thinking hard enough!

    Sounds like an excellent gig. Coworkers that love lambda bodies must also love squeaky animals.  Because closures are squeaky. Laptops also keen.
