desk move

One good thing, when we move, is I won't be next to a Howard Stern then rock music listening radio guy at work. It's not worth fighting it since I know we will move in a month or two. But you know, some of us DO have to do work all day, not just when customer support calls come in. Railing guitar and screaming laughing "morning show" buzz just isn't fun at a distance. I have my headphones, but I shouldn't have to use them in order to have a productive environment. Oh well, not a battle worth fighting when it's due to resolve itself.
Dinner last night was terrific. <lj user="synthcat"> brought delicious cookies, and I have brought two of them to work today, I don't know if I can wait until lunchtime! DLJ made a good veggie meatloaf, and I made a basic mushroom risotto and grilled broccoli. And then chocolate creme brulee to go with the yummy cookies. Everyone had a great time and after dinner we all sat in food comas downstairs watching the swirly graphics from iTunes on the television. During dinner the phone rang but I didn't get it; later I found it was a request for an emergency web page for the small biz site I'm building. I did it because I am nice, but it will set back the schedule a little, I couldn't do final tweaks like I wanted to as a result. That's tonight's job now.

Thanksgiving looks like it is just DLJ's Mom and Dad, and maybe his younger sister and her boyfriend. I hope so. She sent us Halloween pics from her party. Halloween for her friends and coworkers is a big event. Since she and so many others are The Simpsons creators, it's no suprise these parties are over the top every year with astounding costumes and creative decor. From the pictures it looked incredible! I think I also got my idea for a costume next year from it. With a whole year to plan and find fabric, this should be good.

So yes, Thanksgiving looks very small but fun this year. We will have it on Friday, actually, that was when it seemed best for his parents to get tickets. So Thanksgiving itself will be a prep day! Funny! I should do something fun with that day since so many will be busy and eating. Would be a good day to see a movie, perhaps.
