DATABASE. Quidditch = no, alas.

3:35 PM 5/17/2007
... I just proposed a game idea to a corporate event organizer.

Thinking about Tuesday's activity – I would love to have a game of Australian Indoor Rules Quidditch after the wiffle ball game ends. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quidditch#Other_variations) I have two balls with blinky LEDs that I could bring.

Subject: May 21-25 - Space Place Activities



It is the policy of the United States that activities in space should be devoted to peaceful purposes for the benefit of all mankind. - Space Act of 1958


We have taken the Space Act to heart, and Monday through Friday, May 21-25, all regular office staff in Phoenix is invited to come and play!   In the very center of our building, there now sits an empty, open space awaiting new office modules.  Before the short window of time closes when that open space once again becomes work central, we want to have some fun.   We know everyone has lots of work to do, but hope that each can take a few minutes out of their days to relax a bit.


So, mark you calendars, and participate as you can.  Play does a body good.



Monday – May 21                Domino Card Day                                All day with special 4:00pm event 


We’ll be circulating pictures of this one in all our newsletters!!  Bring decks of cards on Monday.  Bring many decks of cards on Monday.  Throughout the day, we will ask that everyone as possible take some time in that center area, adding to a full circle (or whatever shape emerges) of cards we will set end to end, much as in a game of dominos.  (Lean two cards together to form a tent, and place next to others similarly constructed.)  Be creative, have fun, make the longest line of end to end card tents we can...........and then


               At 4:00pm we play domino cards, tap the line, and knock them all down. We’ll get that one on video.  This one will be a blast, so tap into your inner child a bit.


Tuesday – May 22             Wifflers in Space                               Game begins at 1:00pm


In honor of the United States Perforated Plastic Baseball Association, we will be playing Wiffle Ball in our wide open space on Tuesday.   There are rules to this sport and we may even figure them out by Tuesday.   What do you win?  Bragging rights.  Yeah baby.

I might have a good handle on the other stuff now. Sometimes stepping back and
looking at it from the design perspective is exactly what's needed.

OK, I'm buzzing and completely starting to space, but I have everything but
attendance transferring from database 1 to database 2. SWEET. (OMG I'm a grown-up,
except for where I'm not.)

I think it's probably time for me to go home now.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
