The other day we were at a party and I met an engineer who was working on the Xanadu project. Nice guy.

After pleasantries I asked what he did, he explained and I nodded that I had heard about it. Before I could say anything he blurted:

“It’s hideous, isn’t it?”

I agreed. I mentioned my 60’s high school vibe that I got when looking at it for the first time.

“It’ll get even better when they put up the neon.”
