First day in the new office. Going to try and post every day… at least something

Ok… I reckon I’ve had this blog thing for ages, yet never really consistently used it. When I do use it, it seems like I have to really think about every post I make and make sure it has some value to anyone that happens to be reading it. But, in reality, a blog is just a “web log” and doesn’t really need every post to be intricate, thought provoking and drawn out. So, to that end I’m going to see how long I can go posting at least “something” everyday.
My company just moved offices, and today is the first day in the new location. We’re not big (60 employees or so) but this office feels a little more cramped than the last. I’m still building an opinion on whether or not I like it, but one hugely influential factor is that now we are in walking distance to my favorite lunch joint (Paddy’s). I felt I had to celebrate the move today, or more accurately the new close proximity to Paddy’s and walk over for some chicken tenders and a Summer Ale on the deck. I swear, working in an office lit by overhead lights is tough – but sitting in the sun with wings and a pint, then coming back to said office is a lot tougher. I want to take the rest of the day off and head home to sit on my deck.
Actually, even if I did jet out of here and head home I’m sure I’d get sucked into some home project or something else that needs doing. We’re hosting a baby show for my wife this Sunday and there is a crap-load still to do. I can’t wait for it to be over with. 40 people in my place is going to be.. well.. hilarious.
Aside from the cleaning, landscaping, deck painting, carpet cleaning, garage organizing, and food shopping that needs to be done, I do have a gig tomorrow night in Manchester that I’m pretty pumped about. My band (Building James) is playing at Milly’s Tavern around 8pm. If you come down, buy a round.. I need it.
