A Real-Life Update
Does anyone read this anymore? I’ve been terrible at posting anything meaningful.
1. Easter was today. That was, um, nice? Went out for a mediocre brunch with family. It lasted 90 minutes. Meh. Whatevs. He has risen indeed?
2. This was, honestly, perhaps the best week of my life. Monday, had a great meeting with an advertising firm here in Columbus. She’s going to work with Geozet, and recommend it to her clients. They wouldn’t be my ideal first partners, but it will work. Then, on Tuesday I had a great lunch at the Mediterranean restaurant I’m working with the head chef at Ohio State. They’ll be opening a purchase order in the next couple weeks (takes FOREVER at OSU.) So by the end of April we should have our product in most of OSU’s food places. Grab ‘n’ Go style. It’s good.
Then, on Tuesday afternoon, I got a call that I won the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s travel photo contest, and am getting a 4 night trip to Mexico! Prettttttty pumped. The better half and I will be going in May sometime.
Wednesday was my 25th birthday.
Friday evening I picked the better half up from the airport.
3. We were at brunch this morning, and a lovely African-American woman was serving us. As one point, my mother and I wanted some coffee, and we couldn’t find her, and so we kinda put our hand up and I said “Yogi-oh”, joking around about how I missed Korea where that could be done. My Great-Aunt noticed and wondered what we were doing; my mom said, oh just joking and trying to get someone’s attention for a coffee. My great-aunt says “Just put your hand up and say ‘Hey, blackie’”. WTF. My mother responded sternly.
4. Speaking of old people, every time I see my grandpa I get another little bit of a story. My grandmother rode out on a train to Reno, and he came in from SF to marry her. We all knew that. He told about how she got off the train, they got in a taxi, and the driver asked “are you kids in town to get married?” and then they went to the hotel so my grandma could put on the clothes she wanted to get married in on, then down to the judge’s office to get married. They’d been in town less than 2 hours and got married. They couldn’t have been older than 21. My grandpa was in the navy, and later shipped out to some other place. It was just such a different world; a different time.
So that’s that. Awesome week. I’m working part-time from home. Life’s good. More later.
