It was a normal Friday at the office. I was working diligently to complete my weekly reports. The office was not full, but not empty. It had been a week of set backs on several projects. Having new employees start, other employees leave, and general busy work for this time of year. As I was sitting trying to arrange orientation for the new guys, I receive the dreaded communication alarm. (the phone rang). Looking at the caller ID, i was fairly certain it was my Sunshine. Always happy to speak with her, I picked up the phone and answered in a professional manner. She comments on the answer routine, which takes a full 3 seconds to get out.
Asking how my day is going, I respond it fine, just busy as always. She then informs me we are not going home after work. Well, okay, where are we going? Her answer is the Wizards Game.
I have never watched a complete basketball game in my life. So this was a surprise. She informed me of our seat location and the "tip off" time. I am excited.
Our adventure begins when I leave the office. Three secure doors later, drop the new guy off to get his ID and off to the bus. Just missed it.
I ride a bus to the Metro, reload the Metro Card and head out to the Verizon center. Our luck is improving we get to the Verizon center at 5 PM. Looking for a place to eat, we settle on McDonalds.
Marcin Gortat-Signing autographs after warmups.
The game was very entertaining, as the Wizards took a quick lead. However, the Raptors we quick and were able to move out in front. I was surprised how quickly the Raptors were able to get a lead. Once they had the lead, the Wizards could only get within two points. The Raptors took the game.
Sunshine and I had a great time and I would recommend attending a game to anyone. The team gave us certificates for our first game, the Verizon center was easy to get around, and when we left, the Metro was very close.

This years Halloween Party for Sunshine's Club of friends was hosted at the all new and improved Casa de Tronster. A couple of weeks before the little gathering, we decorated the house and prepared many of the dishes. Utilizing the Intranet, and multiple goole machines around the house, we were able to come up with some great ideas.
Here you will see the little "tagalongs" peeled with a strategically places piece of celery. Now this is a simple and effective little treat with the food. They look like little pumpkins. If you look at the plate all of these precious little items were placed, you will see we either ran out of tagalongs or celery. (Honestly I do not know which). They were a big hit with the kids and adults alike. I must have had two myself. Many celery stick was found on or around the table, so I am guessing the kids had some.
This was another big hit with the guests. There were none left at the end of the night. Sunshine and all of her friends worked really hard to produce quality products for this little shindig.
The Front entrance included the lighted sign and singing skull. Every time some one entered the room the skull would sing "Super Freaky".
Look at some additional decorations below. Doors were covered, and so were the chairs.
