thanks, Mom, for the new blog header 😉
On the last Friday of every month, my work does an all employee party. There’s music, food & drinks, executive Q &A. Usually, that’s the extent of it. But this last one had an added component. The CEO announced that due to our recent successes, everyone would receive a new iPod Nano (and I’m talking about the new one that’s in that 1234 commercial that’s on constantly).
I’ve never worked for a company that was so generous. I was floored by it. Mine is silver and is engraved on the back with our logo (though I don’t have Kanye West on mine). 🙂
In other news, this weekend was the Adams Avenue Street Fair and it takes place outside our front door. I’m not kidding. There’s a stage set up on the street about 20 feet from the end of our driveway. Every now & then, it would get blocked by the bands who were coming to play on the stage. It’s not too bad, though. Plus, it’s the Roots Rock stage, so the music is usually quite good. Han’s band played yesterday to a great crowd. He & I then walked around a little. I’d already walked around it earlier that morning. What I like the most about it is that people drop by to visit us while they’re around. We had several different friends pop in for a minute to say hi. When we weren’t doing AASF stuff, we were watching baseball. Oh Padres. I want to believe that you want to be in the post-season, but you’re doing everything you can to give it away. How about we beat the Rockies today in our Wild Card tiebreaker ‘play-in’ game?
