I arrived at Ben’s place late Sunday night (the 11th). Spent the night there, chilled with him Monday morning. Good to see him again, would have been nice to stay longer and just relax.
Instead, I drove off that afternoon to Seattle. I met Eric Smith, and checked out an apartment with him. Then we drove to his house for dinner. I got lost in a rainstorm on the way, but made it eventually after some over-the-phone instructions. Dinner with the Smith family was pleasant. I got re-introduced to everyone, including the new arrival, Amy. Life is quite busy around the smith’s place with the new baby and all, it feels a lot like home in many ways.
Tuesday morning I drove over and met Ian Hubert! We got along quite well, and I’m looking forward to a productive time working on Project London with him. I’m now rather well settled in both at the Smiths and the Huberts (IE, I have house keys for both residences) and the dust is beginning to rise on rapid 3d modeling progress! Aside from the work, I’ve enjoyed hanging out with Ian and his friends, watching movies, making waffles, swinging swords around, eating lunch… Mmm, I need some lunch probably.
I’ll keep you all posted, so far so good!
