I was roped in to helping my much younger cousin with a family history project over the holiday, and found the road down memory lane was much longer than the project required. But I just couldn't stop. I felt like an old codger, spinning yarns about this event or that. Things that she would never remember because her birth was 15 years after mine. Funny how roles change when you aren't even looking. I had become my father.
Anyway, while reminiscing I came across some long forgotten photos. This is me, Christmas c.1971, which I'm sharing with you only because I hope the look on my face will make you chuckle maybe a little. Like "I can't believe my mom is making me wear this ridiculous and itchy thing." And also because I still own this particular outfit, made by my grandmother, which my mom gave to me when I told her I was pregnant 7 years ago. Except I had a boy. But don't worry, I never dressed him in it. Although I was very, very tempted.
I stole this picture to use for my blog, since dreaming about Thanksgiving break has left me completely befuddled and non-creative. I'm really looking forward to doing absolutely nothing. Well, relatively. I still have to make coffee and pick out Christmas movies.
Here's part of our headphone team at Indianapolis International airport. Nice graphic, eh?
Looking to get a job with Klipsch? You'll have to go through these scary folks first.
(If you don't recognize sarcasm, then let me help you. That was sarcasm.)
I find it appropriate he happens to be dressed as a ninja. Sponge Bob Stealthy Pants. He is everywhere.
Have you ever tried to take a nice photo of three boys between the ages of 6 and 10? It's not easy, let me tell you.
A little tip if you do: unless you want extremely immature nicknames for various body parts (and noises) hurled at you, don't ask them to think of something funny as a way to get them to smile. Big mistake.
I can almost smell it.
Thanks again, picky, for the photos!
I'm not sure where he is or what he is doing, but the first thing that came to mind was a 70s game show, like The Dating Game or To Tell the Truth. Then I had an elementary school sick-day flashback, and all of a sudden I could taste 7UP, chicken noodle soup and saltine crackers.
Is it just me?
Yep, we just received 7 more patent plaques to add to the wall. We rule.
Congrats Professor Thump and team!!
Not only was last Friday a fun-filled Halloween party (with a day off Monday), it was also the announcement for the Employee of the Year winner. Can you believe I was nominated? Someone who babbles, snaps goofy photos, and plays on the company Facebook and Twitter pages half the day? And can you believe the guy who won is merely the program manager who brought 17 models of new Reference to life, on time and on budget, while simultaneously juggling countless side projects?
Pfft, cake walk.
Undoubtedly the creepiest Disney character interpretation since the invention of animatronics.
