Light Update and More
So it's February 8th, and the lights across the street are still up. How long will this go on?
In other news, our company off site was yesterday. We went to The Crucible in Oakland, which I was a bit nervous about because they're basically functional pyros and I am, well, not. I thought I would be pouring molten lava or something but as it turns out in my Foundry class wejust had to carve a design in a sand mold and watch as an experienced professional melted the aluminum and poured the liquid metal into our molds. No sweat. Other folks were doing blacksmithing and welding and firefuckingeating. Seriously.
After that we went to a big Chinese restaurant, where we had the whole second floor (a banquet room) to eat, drink, and, most importantly, dance. Then it was off to another bar back in the city. Not a bad day. I'm definitely glad I kept my drinking to a minimum though. Last off site I was suffering pretty bad no thanks to some poorly timed tequila shots.
More work news -- we got our ping pong table set up today. Woo hoo!
