I worked at The Connection almost all day today. I was there around 9:30 and left around 3:00. Oddly, I didn’t see anybody I knew up there today, aside from Tim. He was meeting with some design and programming prospects. After his meeting I sat at the booth he was in and we discussed a few things and ate lunch.

The weather was really nice today. After Amanda got off work we took Bruce for a walk, as we’ve been doing lately. Two little girls down in the cul-de-sac wanted to check him out, then he almost got run over by a kid on a bike. After that we were walking up the road and Bruce stopped to pee, although he already had nothing left to mark the grass. As he was doing that another guy on a bike rode up the driveway and muttered something about peeing in his driveway. For one thing, it’s not like there aren’t any dogs in this neighborhood that run loose and probably pee all over people’s yards and, as I said before, Bruce was making a feeble attempt to mark his territory, since he was on empty anyway.

I did some work on the prospective website this evening.

I talked to Joe Rumley tonight for a little bit. I’d given my sister, Erin Dotsey, names and numbers of some people to prospect as a financial adviser and his was one of them. Joe worked for me at NLB Marketing in Greensboro. He was a pretty good friend. His kid, Little Joe, is nearly six now, which is crazy to me. Joe’s in the Navy and living in Norfolk with a wife and three kids. After he’s out of the Navy next year they plan to move to Arizona, where he’ll serve out a few years in the Navy Reserves. It sounds like he’s doing well, and I’m glad to hear it.

I liked watching Heroes tonight. It was a different episode in that it relied heavily on flashbacks and only centered around one event and location. Usually multiple stories are being told simultaneously.

After about a week off of Gears of War, Michael invited me to a game as I was loading up Crackdown. I figured what the heck. It was a lot of fun. Chris was on there, as well as a couple other guys that he or Michael knew. Out of the eight people you can have playing each other in a game, six of them were from North Carolina. It was sort of a North Carolina versus New York on Gears of War. The other two were friends in New York. I actually did pretty well too- surprising considering how long it’s been since I played.
