Starting to Feel Better

I think I’m starting to feel better. I actually made it through a whole long day and I’m still standing, well, was until I sat down to start writing. Yeah, anyway, I still feel exhausted, but I’m hoping I will be back to my weird self shortly. I really don’t have much to report from today. All went well at work.

As I was headed home this evening I decided to return some calls from the past few days. I had some voicemails from when I was sick and I managed to leave my cell phone in my car today at work so I had a few calls from today to return. That led me to stopping at the GT on my way home tonight instead of going tomorrow night and taking the next step of our plan to rule the world.

I didn’t make it to FHE tonight. I’m starting to think I’m on the verge of being inactive. Maybe February will be a better month for me! I think I’m going to bed now since my brain went there about an hour ago.

Mysterious GT Outing

I enjoyed sleeping in this morning and doing a lot of nothing today. I did upgrade wordpress on my site this morning (afternoon) so it now supports tags and will allow people to register. I had the register feature turned off because I was getting registration spams, but I was able to find an easy to install captcha to hopefully solve that problem. It seems to be working so far, and as a demonstration of how many registrations I get, I got one during the time it took me to setup the captcha which was less than ten minutes!

I also enjoyed looking at information on the upcoming Knight Rider movie. Matthew made me think they were going to be bringing back episodes, but it is just a made for TV movie. I’m sure it won’t be nearly as good as the original, but I will enjoy it nonetheless.

Tonight was the GT annual employee outing. Desoree invited me on Wednesday, so there wasn’t much planning that went into it on my side, but they have been planning it for a while. They kept the destinations a surprise which was interesting and probably a good idea at the same time. We ended up going to Ruth Chris on the San Diego Bay and then going to Kearny Mesa Bowl for two hours of bowling.

I had never been to Ruth Chris before so it was great to go. I don’t think I got invited two years ago when they went (we aren’t technically employees of GT so we don’t get the notices). The food was good, but the service wasn’t that great. I’m sure some of that was due to the party size (50 people), but I ordered a drink twice which I never got and it just seemed to take forever to get the food around.

Bowling was good. I hadn’t been bowling in years, possibly over a decade because I only remember doing it in Kansas and there is no mention of it ever on my blog! I actually did fairly well, at least compared to many of those in our party with scores in the low hundreds. I was getting really tired during the second game, but my technique was getting better so my scores remained about the same. Mark could really get the ball down the lane, so much that I don’t even think it spun on the way down most of the time. I wouldn’t have wanted to get in the way of that ball. Desoree was doing the grandma bowl: walking up to the line and then tossing the ball between her legs. Don did pretty good and ended up with the second highest score I believe. Jeremiah’s fiance beat everyone with a 150-something score.

I must hand it to GT for always putting forth a great effort in their parties. They’re looking for ideas for next year, and I’m always up for ideas of things to do for CBC, so what ideas do you think would be good?

I guess it’s a good thing I’ve spent so much time sleeping this week because these past two days have been rough. I’m looking forward to another good night’s sleep tonight…
