new friends, old friends, and changes

I have to say that I really enjoy seeing my friends adapt and change – and come into their own. It’s amazing to see and an honor to be a part of.

I’m headed out on the town tonight with a good group of work friends – and I’m super stoked to be going out. It’s a proper night out (that’s the Brit-speak coming out), and I’ll report back later… maybe.

Cut off!

I was cut off last night at a restaurant near work – we went over there before 5pm, and I was cut off before 8pm… because I was loud. My friends were a little stunned… as was I. It makes the third time one of my friends has been a part of a party that was cut off, and my second time – we were cut off there after the Beach Olympics with work!! With board members… insane. Crazy. Wow. It was the night before my birthday people!!
Just needed to share…

travel FUN!

So, I went to the UK, for the swim portion of an Olympic distance triathlon… so I swam almost a mile, or a mile. It was cold, but it was great. I did it!! In 42:11 minutes.

I also got to meet some suppliers while over there, which was absolutely brilliant and I’m very thankful for that opportunity.

I got up at 8am on the return day, Saturday 11 August, and went to Heathrow for my flight at 3pm. I met my friend Steve there, and was upgraded. The flight was running 40 minutes late, apparently, so that was closer to 4pm. We landed at 7pm in LA, only to be told of the crazy computer outage, and were parked in a “remote location” until the computer could get fixed. We were pulled off the plane at 11pm. Check that out!! It was insane. At least they turned the entertainment system back on… I finished over 5 movies last night… ugh. Crazy.

But, I’m home, headed to work tomorrow – not sure how I feel about that. But, I missed my coworkers – insane, I know.
