Tomorrow afternoon, Morah and I head out for Hawaii! I’m so excited to =finally= go home again. It’s been about five years since I was last in Honolulu and I’m told a lot has changed. This trip will be doubly nice for Morah because not has she never been to Hawaii before, but now she’ll get to see where I grew up (since I’ve already seen where she grew up). So if I don’t post for a while, that’s why. I’m not sure if I’ll have Internet access or not. I assume I’ll be able to jump on once or twice while we’re there, but don’t expect any daily updates.
In preparing for this trip, I thought a lot about whether or not I wanted to try to contact Lauren and see her again. I have come to the conclusion that, despite how much time has passed and that I’m well over it all, I don’t yet want to see her again. It’s not so much that I’m not ready, but more that it’s not the right time. Perhaps if Morah and I move to Honolulu (which we’re considering) I’ll feel more comfortable about trying to see her again. And what if I just happen to bump into her while we’re there? So be it. As I said, I’m looking toward the future and no longer dwelling in the past.
From time to time I post viewer comments that we get here at Fox if I think they’re funny. This is quite possibly the single best viewer comment I’ve ever read:
10 Dec 04 – 1930hrs – Male Caller – “FUCK YOU!” Long pause. “I’ve been fucked over by Fox!” Another long pause. “Hello?”
Oh! I forgot to tell you about the Fox Christmas party. Wait, we need some back story first.
Every year, our station holds a contest where the different departments decorate their doors (or one nearby as not every department actually has a door) and the winner gets a pizza party. The doors are judged by people who don’t work at the station (in the hopes that they won’t be biased toward a particular department) and the winner is announced at the annual Christmas party.
We have this digital clock that counts down to a date that you program into it (you may have seen it sitting on my desk in some of the work webcam shots) and I got the idea to use it as the centerpiece for our door.
It took a lot of effort and we =just barely= finished in time, but we ended up winning for the second year in a row. Pics of the door are on their way!
Do I have an idea for next year’s door? You bet I do. -)0 People like this. Be the first!
