It's actually been pretty kick-ass.

This Monday's a paid holiday (woo, three-day weekend!) and they finally delivered our Christmas bonuses on Wednesday (was NOT expecting a check. In the past, we always only just got a Vons giftcard), which came with 40 hours of paid vacation time.

On Friday I came in and they all sang to me, and gave me a $40 Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf card, a cup of mocha and a couple little donuts. In the afternoon when I got back from my afternoon club my boss told me in a stern voice to come in his office and close the doors, which had me scared. When I sat down he showed me the paperwork for a raise.

After work a couple of my co-workers and I ran out and bought flowers and brought them to the hospital to see our fellow co-worker who just had her baby. He ALREADY has teeth!! WHAAAA!!

Yesterday was pretty cool too.

A newborn with teeth already? So... at that point do you still breastfeed?

Congrats on the raise, and happy to hear you had such a great day. Kaleb and I had tea in your honor.

Aww, haha, thanks.

The weekend was pretty full. Saturday went to Solvang to try the new tiki bar and getting the world's best tri-tip sandwiches along the way. Ended up going to another tiki bar in Ventura on the way home and got tiki drinks at a steak place that night.

Sunday, we wanted to try hitting the Palm Springs tram to see the snow, but when we got there at 10 in the morning the marquee out front said they were selling tickets for the 4 pm tram. No matter, just got tiki drinks at the Tonga Hut and headed out to finally see East Jesus (of which Tappy and his wife are the caretakers these days.) It was pretty cool.

Added four new mugs to my collection.

Monday I got to sleep in and then go the Huntington. One of these I want to try tea at the Langham.

Hang on. I will go count.

17.

Unless I'm forgetting one here or there.

I would have more but UnderTow in Phoenix was one week away from its mug release when I was out there. The place in Tucson wasn't open even though they said they would be. False Idol in San Diego was sold out when we finally visited and Tiki-Ti sold out of a 90-mug limited run I was interested in, but will supposedly have more next month. Most places I've been don't sell mugs, but I only buy them while I'm drinking at the place, never online.

It's an art installation in the desert. Sort of like Burning Man but all year 'round, surrounded by RVs and hovels of people living off the grid in Slab City. If you've ever played "GTA V," there's a good chance you've driven through a parody version of it.

Happy very belated birthday. I'm glad to hear you had an awesome. I don't always hear about coworkers doing stuff for people on their day. Probably doesn't happen much with larger companies, but smaller are more likely to since it's more intimate.

We're all growing up so fast.

Holy shit, man. I'm honored to hear from you.

Yeah, funny thing. Work went totally sideways since then. Still, that week was pretty freaking epic.

Oh yeah. It's been a looong time. I find myself lurking on a message board or two rather than posting these. Just started to get active again recently at one I've been a member of for years.
