I spent the day yesterday at a workshop on creating a more effective environment at the lab. What a waste of time. Sitting in a room for almost 6 hours preaching to the choir when the people who needed to hear this were not even there. But alas at least they got it right food wise.
Unlimited urns of free Starbucks coffee. Breakfast was mounds of scrambled eggs with peppers and onions, steak fries (nice and greasy), lots of bacon and sausage links, toast, oj and various pastries.. The way to a geeks heart and arteries.
For lunch we had more gluttony. Pulled Pork BBQ meat, buttery rolls, BBQ chicken breast, potato salads, coleslaws, fresh fruit trays and massive platters of Peach Cobbler goop. Washed down with sweet tea or water. Geek heaven.
As for the seminar nothing substantive was determined bt our hunger cravings were met. As we left in the afternoon, while the others were going to start Happy Hour early, I went over to the tobacconist and splurged on an Arturo Fuente cigar ($7) and enjoyed a half hour annoying people on the 16th street mall with my cigar smoke imbibement while texting on the ipad with my future SIL while enjoying the warm weather outside. Using the malls free wifi of course.
On the homefront sometime this weekend I will be planting some sweet peas as is the custom. Sweet peas in the ground for St Paddys day. It may be a little early but alas. The homestead is a lab in which we can experiment with all forms of things. Without the lab life is boring.
