Early?

Yes, it's early for me. I've been up since 6:45am. I have stuff to do at work and today is our quarterly breakfast meeting to celebrate a fantastic person. This will cut into the day so I will grab a bagel on the way in. The breakfast is a continental one.

Last night I finally finished making Cuban Chicken which I had started on Sunday. So much for marinating it 1 - 24 hours only. A few hours later I wiped my eyes and realized my mistake. Half a green habanero pepper can leave a lot of pepper juice even after you wash your hands a few times. The Mary Kay eye makeup remover did the trick though - I could see after using it.

Early Christmas

Christmas came early. I was the fantastic person we honored at breakfast! With the certificate came an iPod Shuffle and an iTunes gift card. Later I got to pick out some DVDs (boy - did I get some DVDs!) since the VP came by. He named us the ROC Band for the quarter. With the new acquisitions this year we made $114 million this quarter and increased our output 30% from the quarter before. I thout we got a rock concert but we get a luncheon. Still - it's all good. Whee!
