"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
kitten on Half-Life 2.

* kitten- just got another gman sighting.
<bda> Where?
<kitten-> Gman was at the dam.
<bda> Seen that one.
<kitten-> When you have to go up to the observation area to open the thinger.
<kitten-> Mmf.
<kitten-> Well, I like finding the gman.
<bda> Aye.
<bda> It's keen.
* kitten- straightens his tie.
<bda> Keeping track of his protoge. :|
<kitten-> Yeah, well.
<kitten-> Maybe if his protege wasn't such a fuckup.
<kitten-> Every time Gordon shows up with his face, something explodes.
<kitten-> And then all Hell breaks loose.
<kitten-> I heard that as a child, Gordon once tried to make a sandwich and the Marines had to be called in to clean up the mess.
<kitten-> "They're waiting for you, Gordon. In the test kitchen."
