Well, that was not the case at this meeting. My company introduced a boatload of new products and resources to help make us all more successful at our jobs and I left feeling very optimistic about the upcoming fiscal year. In 11 years and 3 different companies this is the first time I actually left one of these meetings, and there have been many, feeling great about everything that was presented to us. It was such a productive couple of days that I am not even upset about not being able to work out of either Friday or Saturday!
I did however get in an easy 30 minute run on Thursday morning and am jumping on the Bike as soon as I finish this post. I will then get in an hour at the pool this evening!
Sunday Morning Ramblings and Link Dump:
- I live in Kingwood Texas and love the Great State of Texas. However, I was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania and my allegiance to Pittsburgh sports have never wavered. When I was in college I spent a summer as an Intern for the Pittsburgh Penguins. I worked in the Premium Seating department and had a chance to interact with many of the Penguins players including my all-time favorite player Mario Lemieux. As good as a player as Mario was he is an even better person and I will always remember how gracious he was to myself and the other dorky interns. So, when I read (here) that he is part of a group trying to buy the Pittsburgh Pirates from the current penny pinching owner Bob Nutting I was more than pleased. Go get 'em Mario!
- Cold Weather you can go away any time now! Really, it is okay to leave, bye.
- Today's Trainer movie is, "Watchmen" - Will let you know what I think later tonight.
- I waste countless hours laughing at parodies on YouTube. One of my all-time favorites is from the old Fox show, "The O.C". I am embarrassed to admit that I used to watch this show (yes, I know, I am a 13- year old girl, leave me alone). I think I actually stopped watching it after the Season 2 finale which ended with this clip: HERE. Aside from the awful acting this clip wasn't all that funny. But then SNL went and did this parody of if: HERE. Then the genius that is YouTube went wild with creative parodies such as this (The Office), this (300), this (The Matrix), this (The Departed), this (Lost), and my favorite- this (Reggie Bush). Enjoy and I am sorry that stupid song is now stuck in your head!
