The Scratching Post: Red, White, and Tuesday Blues

Posted May 26 2009, 05:22 PM

Ah, nothing like returning to work after a long weekend of relaxation and gluttony. The lasting effects of over-indulgence have been quite evident at the Ambrosia HQ today. The eerie silence lingering in the air, pierced only by Hector's always poignant sound-offs, is either indicative of a world domination plot I was not in on, or the incredible focus it is taking all the guys to stay on task while still digesting mounds of bacon.

Memorial day weekend was a beautiful one; all sunny skies and lilacs here in the Flower City. Hopefully, beer and tasty BBQ aside, everyone took a moment on Monday to honor the fallen, and the families they left behind.

In office news, this week our IT guru Jake is vacationing in Hawaii. After the last few months of redesigning the Ambrosia website, organizing a slew of holiday sales and bundles, and trying his darndest to keep the temperature down in the server room, we let him get away for a week -- with the promise that he will be attached at the hip to his iPhone! So far, so good, and Jake might actually get to enjoy himself in the sun ... Hopefully he comes back!

The parrot seems to have reverted to her usual self after last week's visit to the vet. The thought of Hector regaining free flight with her uber-sharp talons and beak frightened John enough to take her in for her Avian examination -- aka the clip and file. She seemed uncharacteristically friendly upon her return (actually glad to be home with us lowly humans) but is now back to her evil birdie ways, squawking various obscenities and alarm sounds.

At least someone here is full of expendable energy on this Monday masquerading as a Tuesday! As for the rest of the Ambrosia crew, it can only be hoped that today's coffee delivery will bring everyone out of their mental hangover. This quiet office thing is creeping even me out!

Hawaii update

I am definitely enjoying the sun, and some rain (WARM rain!). The local produce is fantastic. Hector only wishes she could join me for a tasty apple-banana.
