Work is blowin’ up. The office is buzzing. It used to be a handful of us, now there are phones ringing, people talking, whiteboards full of numbers and arrows, and cubicles full of people. Thinking back to one year ago or two years ago and comparing that to where we are now. . . wow. It is quite amazing to think just how far we’ve come, and just how much farther we have to go. But it couldn’t be more exciting.
In other news for this particular Wednesday, Minds in the Gutter, our bowling team, took charge tonight and swept our opponents despite being one person short for a third straight week. On the way to bowling after work, I was one car away from being nailed by a drunk driver. Sitting in rush hour traffic at a stop, the lady in the car to my right got clipped by a lunatic drunk who hit her (no brakes and no squaling tires). He hit her, went up on two wheels (Dukes of Hazzard style) and while still accelerating, jumped the curb and finally hit a tree, then the wall, before finally stopping. I got out, made sure the lady was ok (she seemed to be), but since I was stuck in traffic, I couldn’t get to the other guy (drunk ass). Others tended to him, so I called 911 and reported it. But my car was blocking traffic, so I took off. Scary just how wasted the guy was that despite rush hour traffic, he couldn’t quite figure out “stop” when approaching parked cars.
It’s cooling off a bit finally, so the Hybrid is getting better mileage since I don’t have to run the A/C as much.
