Happy Birthday Dad!

Yep, it’s my Dad’s birthday today! I tried calling but I think he went to sleep early!!!

Alright, here I am and I am back for a little bit. It has been crazy at work and then this past weekend, well, I wasn’t what you would call busy…at all. So I really didn’t have anything to write about and work is interesting but it’s not exactly going to translate well here.

Hope you all have been taking care of your christmas shopping – I sent out my Christmas cards this weekend (one of the MANY exciting things I did this weekend – you have no idea how bored I was…. but I guess at least I took care of stuff – and the weather was crap, so that helped justify me staying indoors). That’s about all I did in terms of festiveness. No decorations went up as I didn’t feel like unpacking the fake Christmas tree I bought last year. Because I’ll be IN Los Angeles for Christmas, so why bother?! Can’t wait to do that, but I found out I’ll have to bring my work laptop with me just in case. This job is a 24/7 job and damn you people who insist that TV go on even on holidays!!!!! What the hell is that about??? And like my boss reminds me often, “We couldn’t be fired enough times to make up the money lost if even one commercial doesn’t air right…” I feel so valued. 😉

Anyways, my main catalyst for updating today was because I have some pictures to share from today, as today was NBC Media Works’ Holiday Party. Since there are far too many of us in this particular group there’s no way to have done an evening affair, so it was done as a lunchtime event in the Saturday Night Live studios. Last time I was in the studio for the Town Hall meeting, I forgot my camera. Not this time, bitches. So I got some pictures today and I think they turned out pretty cool – feast your eyes below. It’s still pretty neat to say I hung out in the SNL studios, I gotta say.

This pic cracks me up - this is exactly how it looks when I come by. Arielle smiles, Joe glares.

Okay, Joe doesn't always glare. Just most of the times. :-)

If I don’t manage to update before I take off for LA, I hope everyone’s holidays are stellar! I’ll see you when I get back next Wednesday!
