As most of you know, I’m pretty hard-headed and once I put my mind to something – I rarely will deviate from the plan. I had not originally planned on a major splurge in my diet prior to March 31st but today … well, it was worth it. As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I have been really thinking about pizza lately. And I’m not talking about some ol’ franchise pizza – I’m talking Mom-and-Pop, slap-yo-mama good pizza. Some CnK peeps raved about a pizza place nearby called Vinnie’s on Friendship Road so we headed there for a good-bye lunch.
Here is a picture of the pizza being consumed today:
They insisted I sit at the head of the table. It gave me the ability to look around and see how many new friends I’ve made over the past 3 years and how lucky I have been to get to know these people. Honestly, most of them were made in the past year. Until “Schwartzy” applied his “magic” and combined the two sales groups – I never had the opportunity to get to really know some of them even though I worked in the same room. And some of these CnK Peeps just came on board a couple of months ago.
Let’s be real – there have been some ups and downs and bumps in the road, but this has been my family for the past (almost) 3 years. We spent more time together than we do with our own families!
Ok, well back to the “splurge” – I had a salad (hoping that would fill me up somewhat so I didn’t completely go crazy when they put that luscious pizza in front of me) and a personal pizza with cheese, peppers and tomatos. Let me say, there wasn’t anything “personal” size about that pizza. It was huge and oh so good. I had two slices and savored every single bite. Everyone ended up bringing most of it back to the office, hopefully Bozo will eat the leftovers tomorrow. It does have “Bozo” written all over the pizza box – so maybe he will have a clue.
I was not expecting so many people to read and surprisingly like my blogs. I just assumed people would support me by clicking the “like” and green thumbs up button and move on (which is completely fine!) … well, except my parents – I knew they would comb over every single word (and I was right!) – LOL. This topic came up again today at lunch by several peeps … let’s call them “Ginger’s Boss” and “My Personal Traffic Advisor” – both mentioned how they read them and will miss my blogs after March 31st. Who would’ve thought!?! “Dingleberry” mentioned how he blogs (go figure, I only found this out today!) and gave me some advice.. so I’m pondering the idea of continuing the blog at a new location,
maybe not 3 times a day but periodically.
After I consumed over 5,434,579 calories at lunch today I was in need for a nap or something to wake me up. I had complained about Bozo’s driving on the way to the restaurant (he bought this sport car but drives like … well… a Great-Granny) so he decided he would drive like a insane, whacked-out banshee on the way back. And you know when I say someone drives crazy – it must be completely C-R-A-Z-Y! We stopped off a QT on the way back to get some beautiful ice (we are ice snobs at CnK!) – while myself and Durty South stayed in the car – we had some fun with Bozo’s mirrors, seats, radio, wipers, etc. We laughed so hard that even now when I’m writing this – I’m still laughing.
Good, good memories
