Today was one of my colleagues' last day at work.
Two weeks notice seems like such a short time when you've worked with someone for more than 365 days.
Of course, there are some people that I work with that could walk out the door without delay and/or ceremony and my feelings would not be hurt.
Tim, the colleague in question, brought in two boxes of donuts today (((groan))) but he was also nice enough to bring me a container of fruit. How cool is that?
Yesterday, I ordered Tim a pretzel from Gus' Pretzels since it's one of his favorite joints. I decided to go with the pumpkin design. Don't ask why; it just amused me.
Did you say pumpkin?, the clerk asked. Mind you, her question came after I said that I wanted to order a pizza...The eyes rolled around in my car so it doesn't quite look like a pumpkin.
Later on, a group of us went to lunch at Basil Spice. I did some reconnaissance and decided that I would go with soup. I also ate half of a spring roll -- my first time trying a non-fried one.
Maybe I can just have broth-based soup whenever I dine out?
I like the decor in Basil Spice. The music, lighting and modest water fountain had me more than ready for a siesta.
Goodbye Tim, you were such an appropriate one...
