E came up with our new, and utterly amazing, team name:
Lucky Fluffy Clucking Flock
The trivia master had a hard time with it, which means we're DEFINITELY sticking with it!!
I've not been posting a lot recently, mostly because I've been working as we head into a go-live release tomorrow. I like the company I work for, and the people I work with, so I don't mind putting the pedal down and working the long days during crunch-time, but it does make for limited ADVENTURE opportunities!
I missed out on two adventures this weekend: first, I was supposed to join IK and his daughter MK in San Francisco for an overnight at the California Academy of Sciences, called "Penguins+Pajamas". I WAS LITERALLY INVITED TO COME SLEEP WITH THE PENGUINS. Unfortunately, work happened, but also there was the little matter of the wording of the invite; after checking with the academy, they really, really didn't want adults there without children of their own. They were nice enough to give me a refund for my ticket, thank heavens.
I then planned to pop down on Sunday to SF, to catch up with a post-penguin IK and MK, along with MH and her friend M (whose last initial I do not know), and genuine dim sum in Chinatown. Sadly, my work took me into the wee small hours Saturday night, and I had so much work to do on Sunday that I had to decline.
I had rented a car for the weekend (using points, so it was free), and I had to return it without actually going anywhere. I logged a total of THREE MILES.
I do hope all of you are well, and I wanted to take a second and thank you all for the happy birthday wishes!
Tomorrow, ADVENTURE!! :)
