Scott and I like to play this little game where I send him an email saying “Hey, I updated the CMEpalooza archive with links to all the sessions from the previous CMEpalooza” and then he responds by saying “I thought you did that months ago, you doofus” and then I respond by saying “No, I just did it today, duh” and then he responds back with “It’s August, and the last CMEpalooza was in April, you ding-dong” and then I respond back to him with “Yeah, I know, I was there, duh” and on and on. He’s funny when he gets annoyed.
(Quick aside: while we may poke fun at each other on the blog, neither of us has ever written anything as devastatingly backhanded as what Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote about Henry David Thoreau after meeting him for the first time:
Mr. Thorow [sic] dined with us yesterday. He is a singular character–a young man with much of wild original nature still remaining in him; and so far as he is sophisticated, it is in a way and method of his own. He is as ugly as sin, long-nosed, queer-mouthed, and with uncouth and somewhat rustic, although courteous manners, corresponding very well with such an exterior. But his ugliness is of an honest and agreeable fashion and becomes him much better than beauty. On the whole, I find him a healthy and wholesome man to know.
Now that’s a vicious compliment.
The point of all this is to say that the CMEpalooza archive has been updated and you can find links to all of our sessions there. There are a lot of them. Enjoy!
