Today is the first day that it really feels like summer, so brilliantly light everywhere, restlessness itching throughout the whole office. During lunchtime all of downtown pours out onto the sidewalks, a thousand pairs of sunglasses dusted off.
Lucky for me, I spent most of the day sucked into a new project that has the potential for the kind of motion design I've been yearning to do. After Effects, you and I are becoming quite fond of each other, aren't we. I don't shoot you that blank stare so much anymore.
And let me just say that watching a tutorial on youtube that is being narrated by a someone with a thick Scottish accent makes it WAY more enjoyable to watch.
To top it off, after that I got an email from Stefan (who had taken the day off and was at home) that says: "So, I get clothes out of the dryer and RUFUS IS SITTING IN THE WASHING MACHINE. I carry dry clothes to bedroom, go back to get him, and he's sitting in the DRYER."
I almost spit out my cranberry juice but then write back: "Wait a minute.... are you telling me that our washing machine is a portal to our dryer?"
This reminds me that I've always wanted someone to invent a single machine that both washes and dries. If this exists, please please send a link to me. Or maybe, ahhh, it'd be cooler to have a robot that does my laundry? Or, wait, wait, how about a cat that doesn't hide inside appliances? Is that too much to ask for? My god, now I'm going to have to make little warning signs and tape them onto anything that's plugged in and bigger than a shoebox: "CHECK FOR CAT BEFORE USING."
