Sometimes you find interesting people in the most unusual places --- like, meetings.
Late yesterday I had a meeting with a member of a committee I'm occasionally on --
I expected it to be a standard, necessary but boring meeting, but I found someone I really like.
She's smart, funny, honest and has some of the same basic ideas about the committee that I do.
I know we'll collaborate well on this, and possibly on other things, while I'm at BNCC.
I really like having someone in this office I can work with -- mostly because I don't always work well with others (I can play well, and pretend well, but actually working well on my side is hard to pull off...).
