The other day Karen asked what it’s like to deal with constant rain. Fortunately, I don’t have to answer this question because the rain finally stopped, or at least slowed. Yesterday we had the normal late afternoon thundershower, and then it was back to normal. Sunny and humid. I don’t know which is better — rain or shine. Rain makes it cooler outside, but wet (duh). Shine makes it hot and sticky.
Maybe I’ll just move to San Francisco. Yeah, that’s it.
Anyway. Daniel sent me some pictures of us at the football game last weekend. My sister and me, Kevin, Alex (a.k.a. “that guy”), Jelly, Chris…you can see them all. These photos make me smile; I love having friends on photography staff who can waste a couple frames on us.
My officemate is amusing. His name is Gil, and he’s probably in his 60s, and I think he’s become obsessed with eBay. I hear him on the phone every day talking to someone about what he found on eBay, and whether there’s a reserve price or not, and how much time is left in the bidding. Whenever I hear anyone mention eBay, I always think of Alex and the crazy things he used to buy off there (actually, he probably still does). Anyway, he got these two t-shirts one time that had the front page of some tabloid on them. One shirt said “Bat Child Escapes!” and had this scary picture of a cross between a kid and a bat. The other had pictures of various congressmen along with the headline “Aliens in the Senate!” or something like that. I think there’s probably nothing that you can’t find on eBay if you look hard enough.
Ahhh. My exit pitch is over, and it went really well. This is the first tour I ever really liked my group, and the first tour I ever really liked my project. It’s been a good summer.
