The Day After Black Friday

So, it's the weekend after Thanksgiving and I'm watching folks round here wander to and fro with loads of goods in their vehicles. I've been hopping t'wixt hobby stores and the like most of the day and people seem a little stressed. I spent most of yesterday puttering round with the Techpriest I picked up and he's turned out alright.

Aside from that, things have been pretty sterile here. My shift has swung every which way but loose and it's really not conductive to doing much besides work. In the company's defense, that is why I'm down here. We also discovered the Flying Saucer which is a very nice brew pub in San Antonio. The staff is friendly and they stock a descent selection of beer I usually drink. Finding Unibroue products was a pleasant surprise.

Sunny in San Antonio

It's been a busy couple of months. Finished my first class here and they've turned out quite well. To say it's been a whirlwind of activity down here is an understatement. Lots of things going on to be sure.

The site opening is proceeding quickly. We're looking at around 1200 people on site at present and we're bringing more folks on tomorrow. ABay validation went quite well. Should be finished today.

On the non-work side, things have been just as busy. Seen some pretty neat things in town, lots of good food. Found a couple of the local hobby shops, neither of which seem to stock Reaper paints, which is a little puzzling. Definitely got some good deals out of the visits as well.

At any rate, back to it.
