It’s my birthday!
I received flowers at work for the first time ever. Squee! I’ve been twitterpated all day.
I left my office this afternoon to go up to our other building. While I was out I got a call from my boss on my cell phone saying to call him back at the office or on his cell phone ASAP because it was really important. Uh oh.
Turns out the other engineer in my group tendered his resignation today and my boss wanted me to know before I got wind of the office gossip.
So it’s down to me and my manager. That’s far better than when it was just me, but still, ya know? I totally understand why he’s leaving (from what he’s said before, haven’t talked to him since he made his announcement) and I don’t blame him at all, but… damn.
Guess I better stop fartin’ around and getting caught up on some work. Doesn’t help that I’ll be out of the office for 1.5 of the 2 weeks following his last day. Gonna be kind of hard to enjoy that vacation.
UPDATE: This is some kind of sign or just a really strange coincidence. I was walking through Uptown this evening to pick up my dinner and ran into the guy that quit back in August.

Since we did have a
party sectional on Monday, we of course had to have something fun prepared for rehearsal on Wednesday. Past incidents include coordinated outfits and choreography during a certain song.
We’ve been working really hard on this one song that’s all in Czech. The notes are easy enough but the words are driving everybody bonkers. I forget how it all evolved exactly, but at one point I said it would be easier if we just did it all with kazoos. Yadda yadda yadda, every Alto 2 was supplied with a kazoo for Wednesday rehearsal.
The fun part is the song starts with a (group) solo, and then the full choir comes in in a round, so we come in last. So everybody’s bopping along to the solo and counting down their entrance and then we come in with the kazoos.
Took our director a second to catch on, but we all kept going and made it all the way through the chorus. It sounded pretty good with the kazoos, too.
It was fantastic. I’m pretty proud of myself.
