Venezuela, here I come...

After spotting this pic off rockclimbing.com, Venezuela just got bumped up to numero uno on my 'places I must climb' list.

Questionable promotional piece...

(After my previous post, I scrolled down and to my horror I have subjected my loyal readers to line upon lines of text. I do apologize and offer this pic to break up the monotony.)

I was given this um...'promotional' item from my former print rep. :-D Undoubtedly, the item managed to make it's way around the office with quite a few giggles. I guess it did accomplish the goal of getting people's attention...is it subtle, marketing genious? By the way, it's supposedly a 'giant pen'...judge for yourselves...

Input anyone?...

Couple things...

Anybody ever order prints/photo books from Shutterfly and/or iPhoto? How did they turn out?

Besides fish, what other "brain foods" are good? You know, food to make you remember things (like how to count properly)...

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Should I take Ty's to see this? It's not rated yet. My initial thought was no, but I did take him to see Fantastic Four and he saw the first one (loves Captain Jack Sparrow...as do I, hehe).

Say goodbye to Sweetie...

Tyler's Sweetie has passed and gone on to goldfish heaven. :( I found him when I put Ty's to bed tonight. Ty's wanted to say goodnight, but thank goodness he bought my 'he already went to bed' story. I'm not sure the cause of death, but something about my condo is fish toxic, I haven't been able to keep a fish alive for more than 2 weeks...

A sunny Saturday...

...and I'm inside working on web stuff. I'm not quite sure why I subject myself to this sort of brutality. I keep thinking how nice it would be to be sitting on the pier or on the beach in OC. Hey...I have a laptop, I could still get stuff done. And yes, may I please have some cheese. Thank you.

PS - Everyone watching the big game tonight?? I'm excited...

Low down on the new job...

I like it. And I think the more I work there and get used to the job, the more I'll like it. Right now, I'm at that awkward new person stage. Now, the commute and hours are going to take a little getting used to (could've been worse...), but overall it's been good. I have a grand total of 10 co-workers of which, I believe, I was the first girl hire (another girl started yesterday). All of them seem pleasant enough to work with. It's rather funny, we share office space with another web company so we're all crammed into a tight little space. But we're moving to a big office building in July, so I'll have my corner office then... haha ;-)

On a separate, but related, note...I did lose a client based on my new job. Basically, she informed me (in a very nice and professional way) that since I wouldn't be turn around her jobs during work hours she was going to find another designer. But the plus side to that, I didn't really want to do any more work for her (she's the reason why designers state the amount of revisions in a contract).

Busy weekend...

This was definitely Tyler's weekend, he had a blast. Friday night he had the company of Grant and Colin (although he was disappointed that Parker wasn't there). And Saturday morning he had t-ball then we went to the Fairfax Fair. We ate at Red Robin afterwards and as soon as we got into the car, he just crashed. From his 9am ball game to the day at the Fair...yeah, he was a little worn out (as was I!).


Sunday we went to Burke Lake, which was really nice. It was a gorgeous day, so we had lunch on the boat while all the geese stalked us (they are quite persistent!). Then we went to Stacy's for her birthday get-together (happy birthday Stacy!!). It was nice to hangout by the pool while the kids played. Needless to say, Tyler was not a happy camper when I had to drag him out of the pool.
