Tux time again

Once a year, I don a tuxedo to attend my company's annual dinner and party, the Seasonal Celebration.  We held it earlier tonight, so I broke out my tux, complete with blue vest and blue bow tie, put on my John Lobbs, and attended in style. 

The event is a high point for me each year, because it's when the company gathers to look back at the year and to share the profits.  At PT, we really are all in it together, and everybody wins, or nobody wins. 

After sleeping not at all last night, however, I am past ready for bed.  I hope to grab at least eight hours tonight.

What a luxury that would be!

On the road again: Las Vegas, day 3

It's going on five in the morning back home.  I'm on a plane to Miami, where I will catch a connection that will get me home in time for me to grab two or three hours of sleep before my company's annual Seasonal Celebration, our biggest event of the year. 

So, once again, I'm going to cut this blog extremely short.  I hope to get back to better entries soon.

Today, I awoke very early after very little sleep so I could join a work call and then do some work.  After that, I was able to doze a couple of hours, and then I did some more work. 

At that point, our little group  headed over to Bouchon for our traditional brunch, which was, as always, delicious. 

From there, we walked for a bit, I did some work, and then we grabbed a taxi to the Palms, where we spent the next six hours watching the finale of The Ultimate Fighter.  The fights were generally strong, and the evening ended with Carla Esparza becoming the first UFC women's strawweight champion. 

Now, to hope I can doze on the plane.

On the road again: Las Vegas, day 2

I am falling into the habit of short, disappointing posts, but I am going to have to work most of the night and will get almost no sleep, so I have to continue that habit and keep this short.

High points of the day included lots of walking, dinner at Craftsteak, and seeing the Cirque show, Ka

Tomorrow, the finale of The Ultimate Fighter!

Now, back to work.

On the road again: Las Vegas, day 1

I had every intention of writing a nice long blog entry about an interesting day, showing you several pictures, and generally being more entertaining than I have been lately.

The thing is, though, I slept less than three hours last night, and I've now been up 21 hours, so I am just too tired.  I will try to make amends tomorrow.

In case I blow it then, I will note that the day included dinner at Jaleo and my first viewing of the show Absinthe.

Now, to sleep.

Off I go to Las Vegas

I head out all too early tomorrow morning to Las Vegas, where you can count on me indulging in most but not all of the following activities:

  • Eating great Spanish food
  • Watching a spectacular Cirque du Soleil show
  • Getting so wasted that what happens in Vegas needs to stay in Vegas
  • Enjoying an amazing steak
  • Watching The Ultimate Fighter Finale live
If you don't know which of those I will not be doing, you don't know me very well at all.

I'll report back on the activities I do enjoy.

Chromebooks? Skiing? Sure, they go together

in this new episode of Now with PT

These shows carry a lot of good content, but we also make them more than a little silly at times, just to have fun.

Terminator: Genisys

I just know this movie is going to disappoint me, as the filmmakers try to reshuffle the Terminator cards into some new configuration, but I still can't resist it.  Just the trailer alone, with its Arnold-on-Arnold action and explosions everywhere, has me hooked.

If it wasn't enough, the fact that the female lead is Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, my favorite character on Game of Thrones, would have me ready to go. 

With luck, this film will hit around the beach next July!
