What's the Frequency Kenneth?

Greeting from beautiful Southern California! I knew I had this business trip planned but it still snuck up on me. Just back from a wonderful dinner with new friends. Our company is very big on creating a culture of camaraderie and today's meeting was no exception. We did great team-building exercises and solved several puzzles together in between training sessions. The President and CEO both talked to me about Kerala. The CEO said perhaps I should have some meetings when I'm in Trivandrum. Dinner was fantastic. We sat at 2 tables and the only rule was that the field associates must sit next to an internal associate. I couldn't resist the free drink tickets and had a wonderful time with my table laughing and playing more team-building games. I know it sounds lame but it was so much fun. I can tell that I am going to be close with everyone at my table. I sat by Jo, the gay intern and Col, the cute accountant who has a thing for Indian guys. I told Col that I would find a nice Indian boy for her. I'm looking for an Indian guy in his mid-30's, cute, athletic (must like the outdoors) to set her up with. She's 5'4", athletic, blue eyes, dark hair and a lot of fun. Serious inquiries only. She lives in southern California but is willing to move just about anywhere in the US.

Jo and I talked travel. He and I both traveled Russia around the same period of time. He's going to France with his boyfriend in August and he thinks his flight will have a layover in Chicago so we may get to visit again soon.

Coming here has made me realize how much I miss going to an office everyday.

My colleagues are horrible, loud and lazy. Trust me, you wouldn't miss working in an office if you worked in mine.

Know what you mean. recently spent time at home (supposedly working from it), and it can get to be a bit of a drag after a point- though i did not really think about it till the return of structure.

Now I don't mind my office so much. Actually I realise that I enjoy working here. Because there's only me and a colleague left in my department.

Wow, matchmaking! We always miss the good things when we no longer have them... words of wisdom!
