In lieu of back posting my way through the months of October and November I’ve elected to skip over them in video game fashion. Don’t you remember when you learned about the Super Mario Brothers cheat that allowed you to skip to the final boss while only completing a fraction of the levels? I’m sure the programmers were happy that all those levels in between were deemed throwaways. What’s a thousand man hours anyway?

Just to recap the last couple of months:

October highlights: The major highlight of October was the Threadbanger Handcrafted Halloween party downtown (NYC). We all had a blast and some lucky winners even won some prizes. Plus we had Indy Mogul Steve and a great metal band play.

Lowlights: The killing of the original Burlesque party the Threadbanger wanted to throw. KIA by the powers that be.

November Highlights: Cousin Wendy’s Bat Mitzvah’s and Turkey Day of course. I’ve got the whole thing chronicled on flickr.

December: At a glance, classes will end this week (for one) and next week for the other. I’m currently on track to finish all my work for the end of the first class, so I’m free of one class after Thursday (this is me cheering).

After next week it’ll be smooth sailing and regular every-day work till Christmas. I’m not making an special gift plans as I’ve already gifted myself a ton of toys this year.

Loud crashes shook everyone from their desks this morning. Well, louder than normal. There’s always some construction going on down on the street, but today pieces of our building actually fell off and tumbled to the street below. Thankfully there was some scaffolding to catch most of the masonry that fell, but I think there was a cab that got totalled by a few bricks.

Then there was our company cruise around the island. I’m not sure what our actual route was, but we all had a good time. Some of course had a much much better time than others (it was open bar). A lot of people brought their family members or girl/boyfriends, so it got pretty crowded. The crowds thinned out once the girls started dancing to the DJ music, most of the guys restrained themselves from acting the fool, but a few were lost to the shame that is the electric slide. Just another reason why I don’t dance.

Up next is a Halloween party for Robyn and Corinne of Threadbanger. This will be a land-based treat party, and should go a long way in getting their brand name out in the public eye.
