When I arrived home I started to unload CarGeeding from items I purchased at Costco, and then all of a sudden there was a delivery dude at the door that brought in this box:
Turns out my Texas Stadium seats were in the box:
The dogs and I rejoiced, and then cried when we realized that Jerry is still the GM.Â But at least we will always have our seats.
The seats even came complete with Texas Stadium dust all over them.
It’s a bad habbit, but I never use the shift key on the right side of the keyboard.Â It just doesn’t feel natural.Â I somehow have mastered the art of only using the shift key on the left side of the keyboard.
The farewell email from a coworker is always an interesting read.Â The LA Times has an article about farewell emails of those that were recently laid off – some are funny, some are full of anger, and some are just professional.Â I wasn’t laid off from Fidelity, but I didn’t send a farewell email now that I think about it.Â But I was only in that department for about seven months.Â And when I left the department I worked in for about four years, I didn’t send one out because if it was going to be positive then I would be lying.Â But I did try to leave on good terms, I bought breakfast for everyone.
State of the Union addresses (even though last night wasn’t an ‘official’ State of the Union) are always interesting, especially the part where Congress decides to sit and stand.Â I wonder when that first started.
Gov Bobby Jindal’s response I thought was appropriate and I guess pretty typical, but there was something about his speech pattern that got my attention.Â I think it kind of went up and down, if that makes sense.
Black president, female Speaker of the House, Asian-Indian Gov from the Deep South with the opposing party’s response . . . it’s a quite interesting time we live in.
