NaBloPoMo, Day 9 - I have sinned against you, NBPM!

Thursday afternoon. Blame it on the three-day corporate "summit" at the beach. Blame it on the excess of wine, shots of vodka (and something truly heinous called "Apple Pucker" - apt name, I might add), and margaritas on Monday night. Blame it on the karaoke until 2:00 a.m. on Tuesday night. Nevermind, just blame it on me because I missed two days of posting. I am truly, deeply sorry for my transgression and promise to be a better journaler (is that a word? I hate the word "blogger") from here on out! To make it up to you, I present, for your amusement...

The Top Five Things I'll Remember Forever from this week's offsite:

1. Killer view from my room. Seriously. Follow the link above and you'll see what I'm talking about.

2. Joking about the company having sent limos to pick us up from the train station and finding out that it wasn't a joke. Cowabunga, dude, our recent reorg is looking better and better!

3. Coming home from the "after party" on Monday night to find my bed turned down, a soft jazz CD on the entertainment system, and two bottles of Evian chilling in the ice buckets!

4. Watching my new VP singing "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard at the gay karaoke bar. (Totally not kidding. And, even better, he punctuated the instrumental solos by saying, "I'm hot and sticky sweet!" over and over again.) Once again, I love this reorg!

5. The call from TCB telling me that his next posting (September 2007) will be in Japan. For three years. (I didn't cry. Be very, very proud of me for that. I wanted to but I didn't.)

Sorry to end on a down note, but I guess that's just the way things go sometimes - you have to take the happy with the sad, smush them together, and keep on rolling.

1. I have never been in a limo. Can you believe it? 45 years old and never done it.

2. Denise is going to Japaaaaan. Denise is going to Japaaaaan. Better start brushing up on some language skills!

I am so proud of your man yet sad for you, knowing that he will be going away.

Have you ever thought about going to Japan or is it too soon to even work out details yet?
