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.
