February 24, 2003

The first part of last week was fairly normal. I am almost done with school finally. I am doubling up on classes for a few weeks, so right now I am taking a web class and organizational behaviour class that I missed when I first started. It is driving me a little crazy to have two classes, but fortunately neither of them are very hard. My last day of class is supposed to be the 19th of March!

I also spent some time at the dentist and eye doctor getting checkups and yearly exams. Unfortunately neither of them could find anything wrong with me, so the dentist just decided to prolong his checkup and gave me the most through cleaning I have ever had... I was there for a hour and a half. I walked out with a clean, but very sore mouth.

James' Weekend:

On Friday, my friend Jason and I headed to the airport for a flight to Dallas. Both Jason and I work for the same company. One of the cool things about my job is that I work at home, the bad thing is that I have never met any of the people that I work with. So this weekend the six programmers for RecruitOMatic got together. The goal of our meeting was to discuss our upcomming project, but we mostly ended up just talking and getting to know each other.

We had a very busy weekend. We met with Brett Rademacher who is the CEO of the company. He got us all fired up for cranking out Apollo (the code name for our new project). He also treated us to a very nice dinner and I got to have my first strech limo ride.

On saturday, we talked quited a bit more. Then in the afternoon, we decided to go to a Go-Kart place and play. We had a good time racing each other on the Slick Track. After that we had a massive air hockey tournament. We ended up the night at Joe's Crab Shack.

Sunday was the last day of our "conference", we had a few hours to kill before we had to get to the airport, so we decided to have another run on the Go-Karts. Across the street from the Go-Kart place was a bungee tower. Fred wanted to go bungee jumping, so we all went there. Three of us (myself, Jason and Fred) decided to go on their giant swing, the bungee tower, and a ride called the slingshot.

The rest of the day was uneventful, everyone got to the airport and back home safely.

Miekka's Weekend:

Soon to be filled by Miekka... wait with baited breath

We love you all.
James and Miekka Lance
