Great Day!

This morning I went to the DMV before work. The place was nearly empty. I was in and out in like 10 minutes. I had to pay $500 tax on my car, but it's worth it. For the first time in my life I hold the registration and the title to a vehicle. Plus I'll have my cool license places in 4 - 6 weeks!

We had a staff meeting today. Mike, the company president, usually reads a bunch of letters from clients about how certain employees helped them and how great we are. They never say anything about me, because I rarely deal with clients directly. Mike's father is consulting for us on a really big project, and I helped him out with some graphics a few weeks ago. He wrote Mike this long email about how great I am and Mike read it to the whole staff.

If that weren't great enough, the executive committee finally made a decision regarding a contest to redesign the company homepage. I tied with Eric, which is great, cause I'll be happy to work with him on the project. We share a $500 bonus for our efforts (see photo).

And besides all that stuff, we had our bi-weekly pizza party today, which was fun, and I've been playing with Flash, working on something new and exciting for our biggest and most important client. I don't think I'm supposed to talk about client stuff... but it's not even like work. I'm just having a great time. :P
