Retreat, day 3

Another busy day, but only half of it was spent in the retreat. We wrapped things up this morning. I gave a presentation on “application support tail” for which I put together a PowerPoint slide deck with some animated slides recapping the week in a humorous way. I think it went over pretty well.

I had lunch with Cathy today. We went to a fairly new Japanese place on 2nd and I had pot stickers for the first time. For some reason, I had never gotten around to trying them before, but they were very good.

The highlight of the day was the happy hour after work at El Cholo. Quite a number of people showed up to it so that it was a complete success. kruppenheimer was there, with her friend Heather, who happened to work in the Santa Monica office, so that she was among her people, although she hadn’t met any of them. El Cholo has the best margaritas I’ve ever had. I had one. And two shots of Patron. That’s it. For the rest of the time I was there, I drank water. But I made the mistake of not eating anything so that I was not feeling too great in the middle of the night.

Kelly managed to get on an earlier flight and she arrived at the hotel in Santa Monica around 9 PM.
