Long meetings are the bane of my existence. Especially ones that accomplish nothing other than demonstrating that a month long project was a complete failure and achieved nothing other than the creation of a piece of paper to pass between two departments. Ah the stench of bureaucracy…


But Charley’s Philly Cheesesteak is nasty. I don’t think I’ll be eating there ever again. I only ate there today because Subway was incredibly slow and had a long line out the front of the store. I learned my lesson. I should have eaten Taco Bell or something.


Subway’s Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki is a really tasty sandwich. Though I prefer Quizno’s Turkey Bacon Guacamole, Quizno’s is a farther drive from the office. Plus Quizno’s is located next to Ban Thai, my favorite Thai restaurant. So if I make the haul all the way there, I usually end up eating Thai food.

And that’s a good thing.


I changed the template for this blog to something a little more pleasing to my eye. Since I am the only one reading this I figured I might as well make it good for me.

I was involved in my first high level negotiations for our company and the Government of Guam. This happens every year and I always knew it to be a tense time for those involved. Now I understand. I was working non-stop last week, churning out data and variables like mad for the actuaries and underwriters. I can honestly say I don’t want to step foot inside the hotel Nikko for another year. Too much time spent in anonymous ballrooms and negotiating tables.

The weather on Guam has improved markedly the past week. The sun was shining and the winds blew once again. And now that the negotiations are over, I will have the time to start paddling and other outdoor activities once again. That makes me happy.
