    I had a nice lunch with Mr. DH and got compliments on JR?s costume. I want to redo the vest and the Comm Pad pocket because they bug me.

    My new boss's son drew me a Star Wars themed picture. He is eight. It's cute. I hope that means they won't fire me now.

    But then I lied about it when other people asked who drew it. I didn't want everyone to think I was brown noseing the boss. It isn't my fault I didn't ask for it. The kid just drew it.

    My good or lucky thing today is that I took a vacation day to recover from the Halloween holidays and I'm not at work at all today. Yippeee!:D

    But, the candy discussion on the other thread has made me hungry, so, I'm going to go to my favorite neighborhood restaurant for lunch now. Yippee!:D

    I thought I was going to have an easy day today but it has turned into something quite different. We are preparing for the strike and I had to prep some off lot properties to become home base for different departments.

    I've been pretty good today and have been able to avoid the left over candy.

    Hey SR, so is the strike happening now? I haven't heard anything besides the fact that it'd start today if it were going to happen. I'll be sad if there are no new late shows for a long time.

    Nothing happened today. I hear it could happen anytime. Maybe tomorrow maybe next week maybe never. I'm curious to know which other unions would follow. I know the Teamsters might and that will cause a lot of problems as well.

    I got paid for my Symantec job woo hoo! It wasn't the full amount I'm owed but enough to make this a great weekend.

    That's where you should be. I would visit more then while at the park. Better than Buzz Lightyear for me. I'm just not a fan of that attraction. Nemo is fine though when you work that. Autopia another one I can pass on.

    This didn't happen today at work but it's a photo taken at work Tuesday night at the ICANN event. I'm the one on the far right. See us walking the red carpet.

    Well that should be right up your alley then. Where are they located? You can get a life time supply of those oversized bags they give out at ComicCon each year.

    I think it has something to do with Anime right?

    Here are some more photos from the event I did the other night. We look good!

    Yes, TokyoPop is a company that puts out Anime and Manga (Japanese comics for those who don't know). It's a very casual work environment from what I saw, which is perfect. Thanks guys. Now that I'm not a temp, I don't really have to worry about getting cut so easily. All I have to do is work hard from day 1.
