Just for a wag, I’m trying something different. I brought my laptop with me to work, and I’m now typing this from Big D’s BBQ restaurant, right by where they are building the Hard Rock theme park. In fact, I’m looking at the construction office out the window.
I’m offline here and will upload later. I’ve found that I do pretty well with writing blog posts and answering mail when I’m in planes and at my father-in-law’s and such. I figured I’d take my laptop to the restaurant, eat, do a little work, eat some more and repeat until I have to leave. I squandered a lot of my working time last night playing poker. That’s the bad news, the good news is that I came in first in a 90 man $5 buy-in, so I cleared over a hundred bucks on that one tournament. It’s nice to finally be earning better than minimum wage for my time on tournaments I win.
Update: That experiment didn’t quite turn out as planned, since several of my coworkers came through and I ended up talking with all of them. Still, it was fun and I got me a bellyful of barbecue, chicken bog and banana pudding.
