When Geeks Collide

This photo was taken by my best friend Beth, the only person in the room without a laptop. We had Beth and her husband Dave over for a take-out dinner (that they paid for! thanks!) because we couldn’t find a babysitter for Leta. So while Leta slept in the back room all four of us browsed the Internet, like any normal set of couples would do together when given time to be without their kids, right? Isn’t that what you would do?

I am on Jon’s work laptop, Dave (in the middle) is on my laptop, and Jon (aka Wolverine) is on Beth’s laptop. This continued for three hours.

I got caught up on all my blog-reading and I had a free meal! Can you say NIRVANA! Who needs to reconvene the procedure when you’ve got friends like Dave and Beth?
