    dancing
    Back from CVFF this time. Much fun. Similar to Falconridge, but different. The atmosphere was much more relaxed and felt less like a fair. At FRidge there were two sets of food: expensive not-very-good greasy fair-style food, and expensive health food I didn't like. Here there was cheap ethnic food, somewhat NEFFA-style, served out of several tents. None of the large trucks that unfold into takeout fast food places.

    The dancing was fun, though not quite as good as at FRidge. Great Bear Trio was excellent, and I bought their CD. The floor was loud and very slippery -- and not muddy, due to the lack of rain.

    I had been planning on camping, but the camping area turned out to be way far from the festival area. Zoe's family let me sleep on their motel-room rug. Not having to deal with the orange tent was just as well. And riding with them in the car consisted of much singing -- and kazooing -- along to old folksongs.

    Fun weekend.

    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.
