Company Party 2006
So this weekend we went to my company picnic at the Colorado Rockies game. It was pretty fun for Josh and me. We got free food and free tickets!
Unfortunately, our seats weren't too good. The tickets were for 'The Rock Pile' which as you can see - aren't so good if you really want to watch the game. It's the section directly across the field. The tickets are only $4. They used to be only $1, but all the downtown hobos used to scratch up enough money to sit in the bleachers for a couple hours, bumming money and eating all the leftovers. At first I thought, "What a great idea! So many wasteful people and so many hungry hobos!" But apparently they were also drinking any leftover beers or somehow getting $6 to buy beer, and were causing problems. SO - $4 for such awesome seats isn't half bad.
But we had fun even though it started raining. it was only for about 20 min. - and that gave me ample time to go get another beer - along with the other 100 people who thought it was a good idea.
I thought we were going to be rained out, but lucky for us, more beer and popcorn were a callin'! Of course after the game, many of us met up over at another bar for more drinks and shots. Needless to say, i was really hung over the next day.
So what did we do?
Josh set up our new pool!
I think if it hadn't have been only 80 degrees out, we would've had a great time. But alas! The water was way too cold!
Josh didn't think so. He got right in!
I just watched. i also supervised the grilling of hamburgers before we went to go see Prairie Home Companion. Speaking of which, only see that movie if you enjoy the radio show.
I also bought a new digital camera and have found out that i can upload photos on the home computer, just not my work computer. i haven't figured out why, though. Josh thinks i should try another browser. But I don't know why Explorer would freak out after 2 years of uploading photos. I will try Netscape tomorrow at work.
