Wow, that traffic last night! Apparently there was a thirteen-car pile-up on 400 which completely fucked all traffic in and around Perimeter Mall. Things were so bad that myself and a handful of coworkers walked from our office to our Christmas party. Pre-hip-injury Paulie loved to walk. Post-hip-injury Paulie doesn’t love it nearly as much because it’s uncomfortable for him to do.
The Eyes Still Have It
Though I’m finding it harder to focus correctly on a computer screen I’m told that my vision (prescription) has not changed much since last year. I’m really hoping to have similar luck tomorrow when I visit the dentist.
During the year I somehow managed to scratch one of the lenses on my glasses. While I want new glasses I’m not getting much of a discount through my vision insurance, and I’m holding off until I can get a female consultant to guide me.
True To Form
Banquet food sucks. Dry chicken and beef. Terrible breads. Disappointing fried ravioli.
The dessert offerings were good.
Three drinks — two red wines and a beer.
I didn’t win any of the raffle drawings, including the drawing for an iPad 2. Dangen!
I didn’t win “Employee of the Year” (fourteen years in a row now!)
We had “fake casino night” and I proceeded to lose all the fake money I gambled, and then gave the rest away to someone else.
Thankfully the party had no dancing nor karaoke.
It was all I expected.
Oddly this is about a car, not a woman.
On our walk to the Crowne Plaza Ravina we cut through the mall. Two of the guys nearly lost their shit when they saw a Bugatti Veyron parked outside the mall. My coworkers tell me this car costs three million dollars, and I believe them.
I was more interested in the young lady walking past the car. Typical me.
ITP Flickr Pic
A mystery. This photo was between some of the shots I took of the gingerbread trailer on Sunday night.
I have no idea what it’s an image of, but it intrigues me enough to post the photo.
I Wish All Home Improvements Were This Easy
Today A Better Gutter Cleaning is coming to my house to clean my roof of leaves and debris. I don’t need to be there when they do their work. They will leave and invoice for me. I will pay them using online an payment.
I wish all home improvements were this simple.
I’m thinking that my hours will scale back a bit soon. I spent most of yesterday future (post-CES) coding and hope to do the same today. Wish me luck.
And off I go….
