Gifts from the East

Well, I finished unpacking from the trip to Turkey and organized the souvenirs into these nifty little gift bags. At work yesterday, I passed out all of the gifts to the people who linked in helped me solve the problem I was working on over there. It was great fun seeing everyone's reaction. I promised to bring a souvenir back for Marisa, the second from the left is for her. Hopefully I'll see her and our instructor, Mel Odom, at class tonight.



Got a couple of pieces of news while I was gone. One of them is bad, and the other is good, but a little unexpected. The good news is that I'll be starting an important new assignment soon to at work. The new adventure begins in a couple of weeks. Hopefully this is onward and upward ... ah, Life in the Corporate World. Another day ... another $1.35 after taxes.

Congrats on the new job...does it also come with the voodoo priestess from hell?

I told Marisa I was going to come crash one of your classes!

If I'm very very quite, maybe Mel won't notice, ya think?

I'm curious about what's in the bags! Tantalizing! And I second the congratulations, but hope the bad news isn't too bad...

Hi Sweetie,

Well you're back with goodies. I think there's a bag for everyone here on this comment page. Clever, thoughtful you! Do you need our addresses? Mine, as you know, is 5025. I'll be expecting the pretty one.

Congrats on the new job. Looking forward to learning more.

Love you dear,
Suze XO :)
