Can I just say that I love being able to get out of my office and heading downstairs (to the Concourse, or Plaza) for lunch. Because I enjoy reading Kristi Gustafson’s blog On The Edge, I have the opportunity to meet some new people. Last month (or so) I went to one of the evening meet-up’s where several of the frequent posters met & had some drinks. Kristi even joined us for a short period of time. Unfortunately I forgot about the one most recently, alas our cunning “leader,” Goose, has taken it upon himself to schedule mini meet-up’s for those of us who work on/near the Empire State Plaza.
It’s nice, because it’s just a few of us, and we hit the cafeteria, or McDonald’s depending on taste. We simply discuss whatever. Today’s discussion revolved around Julie’s birthday activities, and the coincidence that would have happened had I gone to Diamond 8 for karaoke last Friday, but did not.
We don’t focus on girly stuff, but common topics. I think we got girly today because Goose wasn’t able to find parking (darn lobbiests taking up all parking). I am looking forward to the warmer weather & the vendors coming in April, so we can meet outside and I can get some sun.
