Well today was a sort of a mixed bag for me as I did not get quite done what i had planned although I did do one thing that I had planned and that was to go out for coffee with a fellow I worked with years ago, The bad part was that we sort of had a disagreement over the Vietnam War of all things as he can be sort of opinionated (I suppose it might help to know that he is ethnic Chinese although he lived mostly in England and Canada) . But I think the subject only came up briefly and I just politely nodded and kept my mouth shut- it was one of those things that just aren't worth deep sixing a friendship over (EVEN THOUGH I KNOW I AM RIGHT!! ) All in all I met him at ten and got home at 2 pm so I spent 4 hours talking about mostly telecom and various other things of mutual interest. It was good to expand my mind after working with simians all week.
