Full House

A lot of people don't realize this, but a whole bunch of the people who work on LJ don't actually live in San Francisco. This week, everyone who works remotely visited us here in the office, and today we had an off-site meeting of the whole LJ team -- myself included! -- to plan out what we're going to be doing in 2006. I wanted to spill some of the details, but everyone voted me down! "Frank," they said, "what about the element of surprise? What about that moment when people load their friends page and see the news post announcing something new and cool? What about the sixty pages of people saying 'oh wow, thank you!'?" I wasn't quite convinced, so they said "here, let us show you", and gave people a bunch of really cool things this morning.

"Okay, okay," I said, "maybe you have a point."

It's really great to have everyone in the office, though it does mean that the LJ Fort is a little bit crowded. I sometimes get a wee bit claustrophobic with too many people around -- we goats like our space, you know -- so today I spent a lot of the day chilling out in the Goathouse. They did invite me to lunch for the meeting, though, and I ate the leftovers from lunch so the hotel catering staff wouldn't have to worry about disposing of them! I'm so considerate. (I also ate the tablecloth, but I couldn't help myself. It was so chewy.)

I like having more people around, though. markf brought me a nice, soft pair of sweatpants, and coffeechica knows just where to scratch behind my ears. rahaeli spent a few hours in the meeting knitting -- she claims it's going to be a baby blanket, but I think she's really knitting me a blanket for the Goathouse and just wants it to be a surprise! Because you know, around here, it really is all about me.

I was also there when bradfitz decided to make fun of kevink's Excel habit by making excel_to_lj. If you think my pants addiction is bad, you should see Kevin's Excel habit. Although I don't think he eats it. You never know, though...
