i’m not sure if the 3 hours of ping pong, the 30 quarters of shoot-em-up, or the five games of foosball did it – i woke up with a throbbing pain in my right hand. i think it got worn out from too much fun! last night was our big “good work” party for last year’s major software release. as a token of gratitude, the company bought all the engineers mini ipods. as we all lined up to receive our gifts, everybody was thinking the same thing: “here comes another isilon t-shirt.” the awe and glee was obvious after the ipods had been handed out. tonight is a co-worker’s 30th birthday party, so i’ll be hard-pressed to get some studying done this weekend.
