Panther-mania

Today I won tickets in the company raffle for the Panthers' game vs. Atlanta this Sunday!  And the seats are lower-level, on the 5-yard-line!  My wife and I can't wait to go – just need to figure out which of our family in the area will be able to watch the kids for a few hours.

Yod had a suggestion – I should wear the hat to the game so people can pick me out on TV.  I'll think about it – I don't have a Panthers ballcap, so that may be a good option…I'll keep you posted.

Yesterday Was an EXCELLENT Day

I got in to work yesterday to find an email from one of our project teams announcing that they had successfully completed all the performance tests on one of our overseas projects – this was great news for the company, and something everyone was really excited about.  We got called down to the conference room by the head honcho around 2:30 in the afternoon for an all-hands meeting where he congratulated everyone on a great job, and then announced that we were having a champagne toast and cheese platters in the next-door conference room.  Anyone who wanted to was able to have a couple of glasses of champagne and a plate of cheese in celebration…they were also handing out cigars, so I got the hat-trick of fun stuff yesterday: yummy fatty cheeses, decent booze, and a Romeo y Julieta cigar.

I got back to my desk to find out that I had been one of the winners this week in a drawing for tickets to this week's home game of the Carolina Panthers vs. the 49'ers.  Not only do my wife and I get free tickets to the game, but we get a "preferred parking" pass to a lot right near the stadium – since stadium parking ranges from $10 to $50, depending on how close you want to get to the stadium, this is a nice little bonus.

Finally, I got home to find a bunch of boxes of packages sitting on my front porch – Hanukkah presents from my Grandmother, mostly.  She had ordered me a soldering iron that I had put on my wish list – except the company must have botched the order, because instead of 1 soldering iron, they put in the box a quantity of 10 soldering irons!

Everything's coming up Milhouse!
