Due to the apparent popularity of birthing around the beginning of June, this week at Ambrosia HQ the question seems to be -- how much cake is too much cake? That, of course, is a trick question because everyone knows there is never enough cake!
With the sort of fervor only Hector can typically muster up, the Ambrosia staff replaced the usual electronic hum and banter of Friday afternoon with our frighteningly off-key rendition of "Happy Birthday" for Brenda, our beloved massage therapist. Tuesday was Finance Manager Bernard's birthday, Wednesday was John's, and this Friday we will fill the kitchen once more to split the ears of Ambrosia's youngest crew member, Steve. Cake and coffee all around! Correct me if I'm wrong, but there are few things in the world more apropos to software development than that dynamic duo of sugar and caffeine. Tasty, tasty production...
Another theme around the office lately seems to be automotive misfortune. Over the past couple weeks, nearly half the staff has had to break the bank for their modes of transportation. Tires, alternators, and exhaust systems are just a few of the fun gifts we have given our lovely vehicles in return for another few months of loyally transporting us to work, where we can make more money to fix them. John, being too wise for his unfaithful Impala, simply resigned to purchasing himself a new car; while el' Presidente has been rocking the rental for a few weeks, awaiting the return of his chariot.
While our developers have been busy doing what they do best, our artist, Marcus, has remained characteristically productive, designing a bunch of new Ambrosia Gear which is now available on Zazzle (http://www.zazzle.com/ambrosia_software).
I guess I can only speak for myself when I say that I've been trying for years now to combine my love of hookah smoking caterpillars, general evil, and witty T-shirts, but I have great faith that there are other like-minded Ambrosia fans out there!
