Oh, go fly a kite

I had to be in the office to push out a software release at 7:30 this morning. For those who don't know me well, I consider that Hour Prime Sleeping Time During Which No Human Being Should Be Required To Be Awake. The users hated the release, but we expected that. Still, it's no fun to get crucified mercilessly all day.

I boogied out of the office early, borrowed a hammer drill from a very nice stranger on Tribe who offered to lend me his, and then headed across the bay.

On the way home, I stopped at my favorite park to fly my new kite. It was awesome! The wind was light and somewhat intermittent, but I managed to work around that nicely. It's been ten years or more since I really flew a stunt kite, and I'm rusty, but it was still fun. The only time I really got myself in trouble was when I tried an ill-advised flat spin. It spun alright... straight into the ground.

Oh well. Practice practice practice.
