I sampled chatter among engineers last night, in some hotel room along Sandy. We were a green building designer, two solar steam engineers, an artist, and myself -- a reunion of sorts after 17 years, with me the gray eldest.
Earlier I visited a recuperating college professor in the company of a Quaker war veteran. We talked about muppets on Saturday Night Live, among other topics.
Lots of telecommuting and cyberevents (such is life in the big city) -- still horse from all the howling (a "wolf moon" is a full one that stays visible all night long (I learned that from CBS affiliate KOIN)).
