Dreaming in Drupal

How do you know you've been thinking about work too much? When your wife relates a conversation she had with you in the morning, and you don't remember a word, but can definitely see how what you said relates to what you're working on:

Saith my wife: "Jeff, how do you set your alarm?"

My (groggy) reply: "Hit field, the arrow, then default."

Now, this could possibly have something to do with alarm clocks. There are often arrows on them, and you hit buttons... but I know better. I was referring to:

$this->addFieldMapping('field', 'source')->defaultValue(0);

...which I have probably typed about 100 times in the past week, and maybe 20 or so last night during a late-night debugging session with the Migration process of flockNote v2 to v3 (from a proprietary WAMP-based system to a new Drupal 7 LAMP-based system).

It's sad, I know, but I hope you'll like what myself, Matt, Barrett, and the rest of the flockNote team have come up with over the past few months. It's been a marathon, but expect some great news about flockNote very soon!

At least I wasn't singing the Drupal Song!

That's awesome. I'm guilty of stuff like this as well.

Oh my... that song is.. just... wow.

:-)

This reminds me of the time we went to the March for Life in 2008. You were on those sleep meds for the bus ride and we thought it would be funny to try to get you to recite the Greek alphabet backwards while in your groggy state. Unfortunately, once we got you talking you wouldn't stop. Then for hours you were messing with the seat tray constantly lowering it and slamming it back up, I believe whilst saying something about clouds.

I must've been thinking about the explosion Cloud computing would create not a year or two later!
