Wow, a lot has gone on in the past 4-5 months since I last posted. I hope to get back to posting a little more regularly, if not just to link to the pictures I’ve been taking in my Flickr photostream.
Since our trip to Horton and Barboursville Wineries:
- I’ve moved offices. Same company, but now I’m downtown. I had a nice period of almost a year and a half where I only had to walk 13 minutes down the street to the office in Courthouse, so I can’t complain. I’ve always wanted to work closer to the city, and not have to deal with a 45+ mile roundtrip commute. I now have to deal with the mess that is the metro, but so far, not too bad. This is a huge difference (and improvement) from my last two companies that were located deep into the ‘burbs out in Dulles/Sterling and Rockville/Gaithersburg. Here’s a pic of my new desk area right after we moved. It’s pretty bland, but I try to make it up to the newsroom (where the action is) as much as possible. There’s also the benefit of seeing some unique events that only happen in the downtown office – like the annual Peeps contest voting.
- Sometime in April or so, we wrapped up our Caps season. We had a kickass season, won the President’s Trophy, but fizzled out early and lost to the Montreal Canadiens during the first round of the playoffs. Another fun season, but a worse Playoff run. Hockey was pretty much dead to me after they lost. It’s amazing how it affects our group of friends who are all pretty heavily invested in the success of the Caps. If we’re pissy, we probably lost.
Well that’s it for the first entry into summing up the last 4-5 months. Stay tuned for more…
