The icon is a few frames from the iPod Shuffle commercial, the one… - Blather, Rinse, Repeat

The icon is a few frames from the iPod Shuffle commercial, the one with "Jerk it Out" by the Ceasars backing it up. I really dig the commercial, and in particular, I like the anonymous dancer pictured. I like the way she loses herself in the music.

I mention this because I met, and danced with, a woman who could be the person in this ad - the outfit pictured, the carefree dance. The hair might have been different.

I went to a local place that hosts partner dances tonight. There's usually a quick lesson before the dancing proper, and tonight's was American Tango. (Which, by the way, is fairly easy to pick up. A beginner, such as myself, can look relatively good in 10 or 15 minutes of exposure.) Along the way, I found myself dancing with Pam. I enjoyed dancing with her, and I particularly was aware of the fact that she was one of the few people in the building that wasn't at least 10 years older than myself. I would have figured that she was around 24, until the DJ dedicated one of the songs to Pam, mentioning that it was her 18th birthday yesterday.

Oh well.

Greetings from NC. This is Paul Ralph. Ted faintheart pointed me in your direction.

Well, goodness. Hello to yourself and Ted!

You can probably discern a bunch about how I've been by going back and reading the assorted snippets from the past few years here. Or I could summarize:

I'm living in Snohomish, WA, after having lived in the Boston area for ~9 years. Mom & Dad are still living in the same house that I lived in from 8th grade up until I left home. Cheryl (you remember her, that little person who followed behind me by five years?) is living in San Diego with her husband, having just got married this past summer.

During the daylight hours, I'm employed writing computer games (and I think you may recall that I had some interest in this - I recall a moment in NJROTC where I was sketching out 2D sprite art on graph paper, and you were amused that anybody'd make graphics that way). And in the evenings, I split my time between writing more games, doing assorted odd computer projects, dancing (as you've discovered in this entry), boardgames, and movies. Seems like there's a lot more to my life, but that keeps me busy.

You know far more French than I do, but the first thought that crossed my mind when reading your username was a reference that Douglas Hofstadter made in one of his books, perhaps "Godel, Escher, Bach" to the word 'rechercher'. I think it was in one of the dialogs in GEB, now that I think more about it.
