I guess I should recap a bit from the past week and a half…

Denver was wild and exhausting. Not being a people person, I found it very difficult to stay “on” the entire time. Not only that, but I was out until 1:30am every night, then up in the mornings to work the support desk at the conference. I met a number of my customers face to face finally, so that alone was worth the trip. Well, that and the free booze. I did start some nice bonds with a few customers, however, which should go far within my current position with the company.

My flight coming home was delayed by an hour Thursday night due to a snow storm that morning, which cancelled a few other flights earlier than mine. I got in around 9pm Thursday night, and opted to work from home on Friday to relax and try to catch up on the sleep I had lost during the week. A feeble attempt, but necessary none the less.

Friday night was the “Dumb Supper” at Paul and Joe’s, which was as different and cool as all the years prior. This is a tradition we may need to bring with us up to Portland if we can’t make it down next October…

Saturday was Colleen’s “Pre-Halloween sorta Thanksgiving-y experimental cuisine which will likely result in ordering pizza” which didn’t end up with pizza. All the food was wonderful! No matter what Colleen tells you, she CAN cook! I don’t recall much of the rest of the evening though, as I fell victim to the wiles of the grape and exhaustion which left me as a bleary eyed passenger home.

Sunday was a wonderfully relaxing day with Karen and her beau Russ (whom we instantly got along with; a wonderfully sardonic and morbid sense of humour on that one!). We started with lunch at Felix’ on the Orange Circle, then off to a movie. While the Grudge 2 was ok, it really isn’t worth more than this mention. After the movie it was back to our house to watch some tv and chat, then we headed out to sushi since we all seemed to have the craving. Sunday was one of those days you can only dream of; wonderful friends, fabulous food, and no hard-fast commitments allowing you to just cruise through the day… we need more days like that!

This week seems to be proving to be busy as well both at work and home…. Updates to follow as deemed necessary…

  1. Whadda ya mean you’re not a “people person”?? Could have fooled me 🙂

  2. I’m drooling over your descriptions of Colleen’s cooking from Sunday; I’ll have to figure out a way to beg an invite to the next one!

    One of these days there WILL be a good movie playing when I come to visit…
