Countdown....

Yeah, dont know why I entitled it countdown - just did.

Anyways, so last day at work today. Had my going away lunch at the local sushi place (yes Jessica, I know but I stuck to the sushi and didnt get sick). Went out to dinner with some friends last night and because I'm coming down with a cold - I didnt get as wasted as I thought I would have been, which is a good thing. Just a lot of running around to do today...

Don't know if I mentioned that I've been crocheting a blanket for the Jakeman. Yes, I have this old lady hobby but I like it. Its very relaxing. Anyways, I finished the main part of the blanket over the weekend and I'm just working on the border. When I first started this little project, my mom told Jacob to expect this blanket when he graduated from college - yuk yuk, Oscar is the only one who really appreciates that joke. So as soon as I finish it completely, I will post a picture. I just wanted to promote my little accomplishment on the blog.

Especially for the Rockstar
I'm involved at a caper at work. They have this annual fundraiser where the officers and chiefs can be voted on to wash a plane. $1 for one vote in addition, the officer/chief can remove a vote for $2. For example, someone bought 10 votes for me to wash a plane, I can pay $20 to wipe that off. Get it, got it, good. So one of the pilots pissed off the office managers in another building - WATCH OUT. "Caulk" got a little too cocky and the office managers in the other building raised over $300 for him to wash the plane. Mind you if he wanted out, he would have had to pay $600. So he sent out an email saying that he was going to be wearing his hawaiian shirt and swimmin in the suds. Our IT chief was in 2nd place with $134. It was awesome - they they were getting ready to wash a plane and I was a bit too mouthy that one of the guys turned the hose on me. Stinker! At least its dry enough in the desert that I dried off rather quickly.

Ewwwww, the sushi place...I want to vomit just from the mention of it. I think it's still only in business because of you. Now that you're leaving, it'll fold, I'm certain of it!

Last day! Yeeeaaaahhhhhh!

I guess when you think good Sushi, you think Tokyo, San Francisco, Maybe New York or LA and then or course...Ridgecrest! Sorry, couldn't let it go...and for my money, there's nothing like a wet t-shirt contest in the desert!

We do the money for votes thing in my squadron. Except it's at Christmas and the loser has to show up in an elf costume at he Christmas Party. Seeing an old crusty, usually overweight, MSgt in tights and a little green and red outfit just reeks of holiday spirit.
I'm glad you enjoyed your last day. I predict that You're going to be great at your new job.
