Pete's Log: my boring lifeEntry #1365, Sat, January 15, 2005, 04:16 EST (Life in General)
(posted when I was 26 years old.)
Our first week at netViz with a GM has been interesting. Everybody is really motivated and it's looking like 2005 will be a great year. I'm flying to Boston on Monday for Concord's 2005 sales meeting to man the netViz booth and show the Concord sales force how badass netViz is.
We had a fun gathering at work today to socialize with our new GM. We have a monthly award at netViz for somebody who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to do something excellent for netViz. I won this award a few months ago. Our new GM won the award today -- he's really impressed everybody during his first week. But I got a nomination. I was nominated this month "just for being Pete." This made me incredibly happy.
I'm watching the new Battlestar Galactica series on Sci-Fi. I watched the mini-series a few months ago and enjoyed it for the most part. But tonight I'm finding it pretty boring. And the cinematography is really pissing me off.
I weighed myself this morning. I was 177.2 pounds. This is significant because it's the first time I've weighed in under 180 pounds in quite a while. So I'm really happy. Of course, I fluctuate about 5 - 7 pounds a day, with especially large fluctuations on Jiu Jitsu days. So my average weight is still around 181-182, but still, this is a nice breakthrough.
I told Meg's Mom she should buy Apple before their Q4 '04 earnings came out, and now I feel vindicated: they're up almost $5 since their earnings report on Thursday morning. I find their iPod Shuffle marketing particularly amusing. The Shuffle has no screen, which is probably a result of its $99 price. But Apple markets the thing as being unpredictable and exciting. I like it.
