So I know that this week's topic was supposed to be about small talk but that is going to have to wait a while because last week was my birthday. In the interests of keeping the blog relevant to my life I should probably talk about that. My birthday was on Wednesday. It was my 28 birthday and my last birthday as a single man. I suppose I should have gone out and done something crazy to celebrate, but I didn't. I had a nice quiet dinner with the wife. It was good, she made salmon stuffed with lobster. It tasted great. It occurs to me that I am now only 2 years from entering the dirty thirties. It's a pretty scary thought. I am going to have to make sure I make good use of the next 2 years before my youth is completely over. Some effects of aging are already showing up. If I eat too much the weight doesn't fall off the way it used too. I also have been finding a disturbing amount of grey hairs. Right now they are mostly in my beard so as long as I shave often no one can really see them. However, at the rate they are spreading I figure I have maybe only another 5 years before my whole head is a salt-n-pepper mess!
This week was also my second week on the job. A big part of my job is working with a Unica product called Affinium. I finally got access to it this week. So now all I have to do is get a better understanding of the underlying database structure and I will be good.
Another thing happened at work this week also. As mentioned before this week was my birthday. My new co-workers scheduled a meeting and when I arrived there was a cake and a card waiting with the rest of the staff. Seeing as how I have only actually been on the job for 10 days I really didn't expect this. It was a nice surprise. I think it was a banana and chocolate cake. It tasted very good. Maybe a little too sweet if that's possible.
So that's it for this week.
Next week ... I don't know yet.
