  • Calling at a Birthday Party

    April 10th, 2011
    calling, contra
    Saturday night I called for a birthday party. I was really excited to be calling because I'd known the family for at least a decade and like them a lot. Full tilt was playing, and they're a lot of fun t work with. The group was a little tricky, as parties can often be, because the group was such a mix. I called (I'm not sure I'm remembering the order):
    1. La Bastringue
    2. Haste to the Wedding
    3. A Ceilidh Dance
    4. Broken Sixpence
    5. Midwest Folklore
    6. Kerry Sets
    7. FARTing Around
    8. Over the Hill and Still Chased
    There were some rapper performances and a cake cutting interspersed.

    Overall, I think it went well and people had a good time. I do need to find a few more fun simple dances, though, as I was definitely feeling a lack a few times.

    10x (engineer, context) pairs

    Your actual output depends on a lot more than just how quickly you finish a given programming task. Everything besides the literal coding depends deeply on the way you interact with the organization around you.
