first day on the job

today was a little unnerving.
started off okay. got to the office round 9 after an hours worth of traffic. got in the elevator and habitually hit 7. took the passing of a few floors before i realized my new floor was actually 6. got off on 6 and felt very strange to be starting my day there. resisted an immediate urge to get back in the elevator and go home. the rest of the day wasn't too bad. the plasma crew took me out to lunch. they're a sociable bunch. i should get along with most everyone. there are definitely some strong personalities here. everyone speaks their mind. i'm lucky to be working with a seasoned crew of people. most everyone carries some serious street cred with them. Dennis Harper is the new DD. We're going to be wingmen in this. He's been in the industry for over 20 years. He did this old game called 'tubin' as well as 'primal fear', the stop motion animated fighter.
there's still some hate going on from the platform team. it seems that now that i'm on the 'other side' they're reluctant to invite me to meetings... think people are just messin with me for the most part though. stayed late to review some more docs and get a headstart on the Black & white 2 expansion pack req's.

My new cubicle

flickrd by sfxian

this monday i'm starting my new job as an associate producer here at ea. moving outta my comfy office with sliding door and into a cramped cube. surprisingly i've been able to fit all my shit in here. shouldn't be too bad. definitely going to be interesting working with a whole new team of people. i spent the past 3 years building up a team under me and getting to know each and every one of them very well. now i'm working with an entirely new group of people each with their own idiosyncracies and pre-existing methods. moving into a producer role has me closer to the business side and closer to the customer which is where i've always wanted to be. i hope to learn as much as i can through this new venture.

Antioch girls

flickrd by sfxian

ran into these girls at the safeway parking lot in antioch. it was raining/freezing cold. i'm pretty sure they were tripping on something. .. the boredoms of suburbia. and the extremes of where it can take you.

Skirt steak marinade

flickrd by sfxian
I know what it looks like, but it really isn't what you think it is. It's a marinade. Chipotle peppers, oranges, onions, cilantro, marjoram, rosemary, garlic. Marinade flank steak for an afternoon, toss on a grill then serve on tortillas with an avocado salsa!

before the recollection of another adventure whithers away within my feeble excuse of a memory, i figured it'd be wise to jot down a few anecdotes. oh bother. i don't have the energy.
i'll have to rely on my pics again.
check em out here if you're' interested

thailand in my dreams

All my dreams since i got back have revolved around our thailand adventure.
some nights I wake up asking myself the question, 'how much do i owe alvina?' for that taxi? other nights it's, 'yo kaream, hit me up with a redbull n whiskey'
