VP: are you going to see U2?!?!!?

ARW: Yes!

VP: I was totally kidding. I know you just saw them in California not too long ago right?

ARW: yes and in Chicago 2 weeks ago. I met the band and lived off of crackers and muffin (products ). I'll probably have to load up on crackers before I go because I'm too poor for anything else.

VP freaks out tells me I can't go to Ireland and eat crackers and she's going to give me something before I go.

give me something? I hope she forgets. I dont' like when people "give" me things....I hope she just means she's going to buy a box of crackers for me. Now I'm going to have to avoid her for the next few weeks.

We talked about my trip a little more and she said she was sad that she didn't know the details about my Chicago trip before and I told her all about GMA. I'm going to bring my pictures tomorrow to show her. It was kind of a fun conversation but very weird at the same time telling my boss's boss about my hobby. It's kind of funny to see people's reactions to when I tell them I'm seeing U2 11 times all over the US and in Ireland. She told me she's never met anyone to do anything like this before. I told her I hadn't either
That's really kind of cool! It would be kind of weird at the same time being a boss but still cool.

I eat meat and I still do not think I would like the sight of that.

That is cool!
Maybe she meant a $$$ bonus when she said she was going to give you something. Just a thought............... A very happy thought, but who knows.................

Overtime is a good way to think of it....although I would feel a bit weird taking something after that too unless it was like a box of something to take to eat as a have a nice trip kind of thing.

I would not take a cent from anyone!

I hope it was just something she said and not something she would act on That would be too creepy for me even if she did give me a box of snacks to take with!

My dad just spent a long time showing me the ins and outs of this program he found that makes slideshows out of your pictures...you can put them to music and everything. He showed me two different shows he made and told me all about finding appropriate music and cropping the pictures and everything!
