As Good As I Once Was

Actually, yes I am.Given the title of this post there are about seventy two different ways I could take things but I’m going to go the route nearest and dearest to my heart.

And that would be…(let’s all say it together)…BEACH VOLLEYBALL.

I was listening to some country music, taking a break from perhaps the most awesome Pandora station I’ve ever created (“Africa” by Toto was the catalyst) and this song came on.  I decided right then and there I was going to scrap the other post I was working on and do this one instead.  It’s actually not the overall sentiment that I’m as good (or not) as I once was that convinced me to write this post – it was a particular line in the song Continue reading As Good As I Once Was

Uncomfortably Comfortable

This is not Jon Voigt, by the way.  In case you were curious.I’m a social guy.

Anyone who knows me is probably either grinning or laughing at that because, frankly, sometimes “social” just doesn’t even begin to describe it.  I don’t have a problem striking up a conversation with just about anyone, regardless of sex, age, race, social stature, fashion sense, hair style/color, job or any other variable you can think of.  As long as you can make a comment about sports, the weather, bacon, cars, video games, coffee or any other topic I can pronounce and have ever run across in my thirty-some-odd years here on this Earth we can have a conversation.

Check

Check!It was a good week.

No, it was a great week.

My first week in my new job was spectacular.  I’ve got a great boss, I’m surrounded by a very diverse team and I love what I do.  That’s a trifecta in my book.  Plus I’m back on the Sprint campus and within a short walk from two excellent cafeterias, a convenience store and a Sprint PCS store.  And Sprint happens to believe in investing in technology to make people more productive; something I haven’t always been party to in prior roles.

Keeping Calm and Chiving On

Keep calm and CHIVE ON!Although Friday night wasn’t a success in terms of winning the city-wide music video bingo championship it was a success in terms of having fun.

And – almost as importantly – running across a few other Chivers and Chivettes – pictured here (sorry for bad picture quality – my phone isn’t exactly known for taking pictures well…).

The Chive is one of my favorite web sites and my luck at snagging a KCCO t-shirt has Continue reading Keeping Calm and Chiving On

Mr. President…

Secret ServiceThere’s a new game we’re going to play.

I was taking a break from being productive and decided to peruse Facebook for a while yesterday.  I ran across a post from Cracked.com (sometimes safe for work; almost always amusing): “4 Free Games You Can Play to Make Life More Interesting” and read it.  I’m always a fan of games and entertainment so it sounded right up my alley.

If only I had Continue reading Mr. President…
