Color Me Surprised...

Two surprises for me today.

So, as it turned out, yes, I did go to work today. After receiving the "No, I'm sorry, I don't think so. Plan on tomorrow." phone call, I received a "Yes, they got all of the paperwork in and would love to see you by 9:45am." phone call at 9:15am. Thus, my day of errands was cut very short. I walked out of the store and was at my new office building by 9:35am.

The usual setup SNAFUs happened. I didn't have a laptop from Endeavor. Turns out I need it. I'll get it tomorrow. The first machine HIG (the group at MS I'm in) gave me was DOA. I don't have a badge, yet. Thus, I need to be escorted between buildings. Still, it was a very good day. Interesting product. Interesting people. Until I get the laptop up and running, my daytime communications will be very limited (by my choice). Once it is up and running, LJ will be a lunchtime activity. Email will be sparse throughout the day. I'll have MSN IM up eventually.

My second surprise was receiving a Mother's Day gift from my cat! Apparently, she decided I should have a Hawaiian Pineapple Macadamia Nut cake. Sounds wonderful. I can't wait to try it.

And now, to catch up on LJ and the usual net suspects.
