Tonight we got a large veggie pizza from a local place called La Strada. We usually hit them for Broasted Chicken but tonight was a Friday pizza night. I am also a big fan of straight up Pepperoni Pizza but Allison won out with the vote for veggie. I think I am a veggie pizza convert. This was delicious! I was too hungry to go back and make sure that part of the was totally in focus.
I played around with the cropping of this photo. I decided on a tighter crop instead of a larger version. I have got to start getting home before the light is gone for the day. Tomorrow I’ll get outside and use natural light.
Today was a big day at work. Each year we have a large kickoff meeting. Last year I was very involved it in the process and created many videos for the event. This year I was not involved and it was interesting to be sitting in the audience rather than standing behind the stage. I enjoy being behind the scenes.
My favorite part of the day was the fact that my good friend Peter won a very important award. He is one of the most humble people that I know and he was truly stunned to win the prize. Since I have been in marketing Peter has been nominated for this award and this year he got it. You have to understand that Peter is one of the nicest guys but things seem to happen to him that are not exactly fortuitous. He just got back from a very difficult traveling adventure and he had his home broken into this year, so the events leading up to his winning this prize were just so Peter. Each year there is a list of top 10 demonstrators. The presentation shows the top 9 and then the winner is on the next page of the presentation. Someone is to explain the award and why we give it each year. Then they reveal who the winner is. However someone hit the advance button accidentally so the whole crowd saw who won. With the cat out of the bag everyone broke into very enthusiastic applause. It was well deserved for the amazing effort that Peter gives each and every day. I am so proud of my mentor and friend.
Peter is an example that being a hard worker, a team player, a kind person and nice to people pays off.
Speaking of those themes, I reviewed a new book on Read To Me, Dad. I’ve got to update that blog much more often. I posted a couple of YouTube videos of some Eddie Izzard bits. And as a coincidence Peter was the one who introduced me to Eddie Izzard.
