Yelp "elite" party, visiting parents, metafile quirks, desk design

Recently "J" was awarded an "elite" reviewer on Yelp, which includes occasional invitations to parties. Tonight was the party, at a coffee shop on Capitol Hill. There was free stuff (we picked up a Yelp-logo ice tray), free food, free coffee, and a presentation by people from the coffee shop about why their coffee is good. I don't even drink they coffee, but they had good tea too. It was fun.

I also visited my parents for a little while. "T" was in Bellevue too, so I gave him a ride home.

During the day, J requested a floor plan of our house. I had one, but it was cluttered by the layout of the floorboard pattern, and didn't have a scale grid. I fought with Inkscape a bit to get it to include a graph paper background, converting from Paint Shop Pro format to "Windows enhanced metafile", then importing to Inkscape. It worked, but it included a lot of not-quite-precise numbers like "29.9663" because the metafile apparently does some things its own way.

I also spent some more time on the desk project. It looks a lot more detailed now than last time I worked on it; I got a lot of drawing done even though I spent a lot of time on research rather than actual drawing.
