From sarpo If you read this, even if I don't speak to you often, you must post a memory of me. It can be anything you want, it can be good or bad, just so long as it happened. Then post this to your journal. See what people remember about you.

I remember working with you at USGS, and doing peer reviews of code, and the team deciding that you ought to comment your perl regular expressions because they were so long and complex. I remember them working perfectly in every bizarre case possible, up until the point that someone else had to edit it, and then we couldn't make heads or tails of what it should do.

I was really impressed at them working so perfectly in the first place.

The super long regex's were never meant to be modified. :)

The only really crazy one I remember writing was for parsing the dates from NWS data. Those dates were human entered and few people used the same formats.

The first time I met you: I came over to your house to watch movies, and you were SO welcoming to me... which meant a lot because I was feeling ultra shy and out of my element. And on top of being so nice that night, you made us the most fabulous quiche in the world. :)

I remember having you take a picture of me inside your/Jake's closed door with a sign that said "Illegal Intervis." ;) I think I've still GOT that picture somewhere ...

I remember the "Stop Me Before I Volunteer Again" T-shirt, and thinking how appropriate it was for you.

I just recall meeting you the first time at Mary Ann's one night, during the Spring that you first met and hung out with Annie on a regular basis.

It was kind of funny, because I hadn't seen Annie much, and I just recall the two of you being really in sync with one another from haning out so much - to the point that you were even talking similarly.

Random, I know, but that's what comes to mind.

I remember watching the sixth season finale of 'buffy' in your house, and thinking i was all alone. Screamed with joy at the top of my lungs when [spoilers for gods sake, people spoilers!], and you came tearing downstairs thinking something was on fire, or there was a wild animal loose in the house or god knows what. Hee!

I would have to say a great memory was riding on the merry-go-round at Irishfest (all those many moons ago...)

I remember watching you throw out an abusive drunken punk asshole at New Years. That was a lot of fun. :P
