Goodfellas painting. (by FJPizzy)
On a recent Back to Work Dan explained their new Skype setup, in which they each have two connections to the other: One dedicated to outgoing voice and the other dedicated to incoming voice.
I wanted Merlin to say “One goes one way; the other goes the other way. So what?” so much I could taste it.
Alas, he did not.
At the big party Saturday night, I met Merlin Mann and I was able to tell him things I’ve always wanted to tell him (all good stuff, in case you were wondering). He was gracious and kind. Additionally, he signed his toot* in Twitter Wit. Yes, I wrote it in there so he could sign it.
(People throw around the word “irony” a lot. But I believe this qualifies.)
It’s ironic that this makes me inordinately happy.
* I would like to get everyone’s autograph on their toots in the book. I was fortunate enough to get many this weekend. And sad about the people I missed.
While we’re on the subject, I’m still happy about this.
Yeah, so something came in the mail today.
Sometimes the world is so goddamn beautiful.
Sorry if I got you in trouble, Don.
It starts with confusion, which gives way to exasperation. Eventually, you end up with enlightenment.
Just stay on-board long enough.
Is this ping-pong?
That's a big rooster.
- Merlin: You know I used to weigh thirty pounds more.
- Dan: Uhhh... How?
- Merlin: All cock.
