In particular, I’m having lunch with Tom Harpel of Tandoku.com (and sometimes of local band Onalaska, it seems). Looking forward to hearing about his Microsoft experiences as well.

Day of contractors
In other skippable life news, our plumbers are back! This time they’re running a gas line up into the kitchen for our new oven, which will be delivered today. We had a really hard time deciding, but we finally decided to go with the Gemini.
Incidentally, do you know how loud a hammer drill is when it punches through tile? Neither did I, until just now.
Day of Brahms
Tonight at University Presbyterian Church my choir and I sing the Brahms Requiem. Should be a really good show.
The dress rehearsal last night went quite well, I thought, though our director clearly has a preference for minimizing vocal strain rather than polishing every last rough edge during dress rehearsal. Considering the directors I’ve had who have erred way too far in the other direction, I rather appreciated his restraint.
