Free Beer and Jello Shots!

It's the St Patrick's day party here at Zune! That means a party! I'll tell you, Microsoft knows how to throw a party. It's always a good time. Free drinks, free food, and good entertainment.

Right now there are almost 100 people gathered around a 15ft TV screen all watching people play rock band! One singer, one guitarist, one bassist, and one drummer at a time. Everyone is yelling almost like it's a real band or something.

Meanwhile I sit here with my beer and jello shots doing my work. (don't worry mom, I'm not getting drunk, I had a couple jello shots at lunch, and I've been nursing a beer for a couple hours now.)

I went up and played a little of the bass up there, but it's nothing like a real bass. However, it is fun!

So, I ate dinner here... I've been putting music onto a Zune to use for the weekend, and I have to say things are going pretty good.

It looks like Sunday will be sunny, so Jaani and I are going to the dog park. Tomorrow I think we'll go walking on a trail, because it will be easier to keep him clean.

My new job is great! I have been walking around since Wednesday with a badge that says Employee (instead of Contractor or Vendor.) It's just cool because everyone who doesn't work with me thinks I'm a full time employee.

I really think I made the right choice by going here in stead of SQL Server. Even if it doesn't look as good as an SQL build engineer.

Anyway... back to work. My break is about over.
