Scripting News: Fortune cookie collage.

My friend Yvonne Burgess helped me move out of my house in Berkeley in 2010.

Moving is something I’m very bad at (even though I do it a lot), and something she’s very good at. I went back to Calif with about a week to pack up the house, give away a lot of my stuff, put the rest in storage, before turning it over to the new owners and returning to New York. I went there having no idea how I was going to do it. Yvonne saved my ass. It was an amazing experience.

One of the things I left behind was a drawer full of fortune cookies. Every time I ordered takeout, apparently, I saved the fortunes, in a special drawer in the kitchen. I have no memory of doing this. Yvonne did something beautifully creative with this collection, turning it into a collage, which she sent to me in NY in August of this year. Here’s a scan of it.

And here’s Yvonne’s blog post about the collage.

What an amazing thing to have a friend like this. 😉

PS: Yvonne is a programmer. So much for me remembering all the programmers I’ve ever worked with.
