Happy Halloween

This year's Halloween loot. Sad.

Sunny and I were late getting back to Decatur from work, and when we stepped onto my floor two of the elderly neighbor ladies stopped us and told us we had to take some of their candy.

Apparently, living in a locked-down condominum complex is good for security, but bad for trick-or-treaters. Posted by Picasa

Where's Waldo?

Another classic I.S. Halloween party thrown by the lovely people that bring whole grains to your breakfast table every morning. I learned a couple things from the party:

1. Waldo always has a cane with him.
2. Me + Karaoke = Not good.

Mr. Mowers, two point deduction!

Part of a press release from the Iowa Governor's office:
"DES MOINES - Governor Tom Vilsack and Lt. Governor Sally Pederson announced today key appointments to the Administration's staff...

Joseph Mowers has been promoted to a Policy Liaison position and will handle issues related to the Department of Administrative Services and the Department of Transportation. Mowers previously served as Outreach Coordinator for the Administration. He is a graduate of Grinnell College."

Congrats Mowers...

Lakes, Geese, and Changing Colors, Oh My!

Despite the chilly weather, it is quite refreshing being back in Minneapolis. In the few days I've been here I've seen a number of picturesque settings: geese flying over a calm lake surrounded by trees half-full of changing leaves. I saw this while disc golfing, and now while I sit in the world headquarters lunchroom. Subtle reminders of why I enjoy Minnesota.

El Expensive

Since when did "El" in Spanish translate to "Not"?
I need to get a new dictionary...

Stevie B's fine dining

Day in and day out, my fellow coworkers and I face an extremely difficult decision: "Where do you want to eat today?" Let's just say that Covington, GA is not known for it's culinary talents. And until one of us makes a random-generator restaurant picker, or "Wheel O' Restaurant Fortune", it will continue to be a taxing decision we will have to live with.

However, today we settled on the classic standby: Stevie B's Pizza. What makes me love Stevie B's even more is the fact that my Dad's company provides the toppings. Mmmmmm, good!

Finally on the dot com...

Considering I do IT work for a profession, one might assume that I would (or should) be on the dot com. Well here it fans will be so proud.
