Well, we're back from the holidays, and everyone's moving a bit slow. Seems that Brian and I caught the same kind of death cold over New Year's, even though I haven't seen him since the 17th. Aaron gripes about the fact that people don't always address letters to the person they're supposed to go to, so he gets to open all the mail. We discuss the possibility that Steve Jobs is actually a robot, and the irony that he's probably powered by UNIX. Russell mentions how he was harassed about working on Requiem at the wedding he went to. Meanwhile, Jess wins the "most interesting holiday" award by spinning out in her car on Saturday and slamming into a concrete divide, only to find that her front and back driver's side corners were the only damage to the entire car (she's fine, BTW). John tells us we've been "Tom Sawyered," which sounds like something that should be on Chaney's list. Aaron is considering spending money to be dropped into the desert for a week with only a backpack full of supplies.
The meeting covered a lot of ground, including some exciting stuff going on with the web team in the future. We also talk a little about the 2009 and 2010 schedules, and open the door to some brainstorming next week. Some
of us came with our requested New Year's resolutions, and read them aloud to
our co-workers; the rest have until next week. In retrospect, I don't recall what will happen if someone doesn't cough up some resolutions. Maybe they have to clean out the warehouse with a toothbrush or something.
