11:30 a.m. This is a very quick update as I'm just having a break before lunch. I will write more later this afternoon.

Highlights: Plane ride was fine. I was tired. I ended up sitting between two businessmen. I fell asleep and woke up on the shoulder of the guy to my right. Oops! Apologized. Then, I fell asleep again and woke up on the shoulder of the guy to my left. Oops! Better not fall asleep anymore.

After I got in, I went to the main office and met the big wigs. I had dinner with the #3 guy in the company last night. He's usually so straight laced...always a stickler for the rules and in a sour temper. Makes me think of a rat. (Scurry, scurry, scurry..) Anyway, he loosened up during dinner and I actually found him interesting and funny. One amusing/annoying habit of his... He keeps saying "i.e." as in "You should always make your investigators send in their reports before 7pm or you might be up waiting until midnight...i.e., Joe didn't get his reports in until 11pm so I had to stay up until midnight."

After about 30 times, it started to annoy me. i.e., I it got on my nerves.

My hotel room stinks. Literally. Smells like teen spirit. Or at least B.O. I complain to you guys, but I don't plan to do anything about it.

My direct supervisor (whom I imagined would look like Willy Nelson) looks like Boss Hogg. Hee hee. Go figure! Somehow, I like that even better.

Polly, Boss Hogg? Does that mean you get to drive the General Lee, or that you wear Daisey Dukes?

Or both?

Sly - I was thinking the same thing but didn't post it this morning.

I use to go to Dukefest in Spurryville VA every spring. All the General Lee's and other vehicles from the show arrive and so do a lot of fan's. This small town is just over run with Duke's of Hazzard fans! It is a great time! And you can get RC cola and Moonpies at Cooter's garage! If you are ever in that area of VA stop in.

That would be an amusing place for an annual meeting. What am I doing here in Boston??

*random thought*

Is "Polly the P.I." short for "Polly the cutie-pie"?

/random thinking

Dukefest? Really? When is that held?

Just said...

Somehow I don't think either of the 2 businessmen on the flight minded Polly on their shoulders... just sayin'....
