I was late to work and Cathy said, "The Twin Towers are on fire." We watched the news together as the second plane hit. I remember the awe at what was happening before my eyes but not being overly concerned as I knew our firefighters would take care of the flames and that our engineers would restore the buildings; then the tower dropped. I stared at the tv in disbelief. That couldn’t happen!

I grabbed a portable television and went into work. We all sat around watching the news … more when evan lets me type

Next time could you find a more awkward picture of me?

I think that Dean may have been an extra from Revenge of the Nerds. Is there a history that we haven’t heard about? But, what can we say.. Jeni and I are both married to Big Geeks and we love them.

Evan’s doing a good job keeping you from typing, isn’t he?

Actually, he does get much of the credit. With Cathy’s mother in the hospital and my work on a hellish deadline, I haven’t had much time at the keyboard for anything other than coding. Even email is taking a hit which is a problem because the next job inquiries are in the inbox.
