1. Appearing unrecognizable to a few colleagues. (Eventually they realized who I was, but it took several seconds!) A fun result of yesterday’s haircut.
2. Learning how a technology team makes lemonade out of lemons: If their system is inaccessible at any point during the work week, they each put $5 into a kitty. When the system is stable for a full week, they use the kitty money to treat themselves to drinks or a meal (depending on how much cash they have to spend). The team is currently sitting on over $100; looks like they are going to eat well! (Hopefully they get to eat soon, too.) 🙂 I like how they have kept some levity around what can otherwise be a draining, depressing issue.
3. Seeing a TV celebrity give a classy sendoff to two of his colleagues who are moving to a new show. (“We will miss ’em all like crazy cakes, but wish them only the best.”) Love this.
