Texas Holdem

Today, a bunch of us organized a post-work poker game of Texas Holdem. Complete with poker chips, snacks, and a few brews. What a great time – I was laughing the whole evening, and I had a blast just hanging out. This was a big guys-night-out sort of evening, and really just a ton of fun. Everyone of us are…

Artful Dodging

Hung out with Liz and Steph and Mandy tonight, at the Artful Dodger. I ended up throwing down a good number of drinks, and we had some great talks. Liz got me really excited by this book that deals a lot with intuition. Some really fascinating theories, and I’m looking forward to finding out more about this. Tonight’s conversations reminded…

This is my plate, right before we fall to eating (grilled octopus, olives, part of a Spanish omelet and patatas ali-oli (red potatoes with…

Surprise Bouquet

Ah, how awesome is this? I came into work today, and found this great flower bouquet from Matt and Melissa. They left a great card, thanking everyone for the tour of Q101, and for the Death Cab for Cutie tickets. Our little Interactive area just got a little purdier.

Matt and Mel

Matt (Tha.Riddla) and Mel stopped by the Q101 office this morning. I found out that Death Cab for Cutie was playing in the studio, and let Matt know. He had expressed interest in them to me before, and I offered to sneak him in for a listen. He and Mel stopped by, and we all got to go into the…
