This afternoon I went to the annual "Corporate Games" beer bash on main campus. Lots of fairly entertaining events like the shark cup on the head water exchange event. Bounce on those balls you loved as a kid down the course. Giant sling shots of water balloons to your team mates where were supposed to capture them unbroken. Spell lots of words from certain letters as fast as possible. I don't know how they score up to determine "winners" but I know awards are given to best costumes among other things. Food and drink was good as always. As I was enjoying my wine and corn salad I listened to several conversations floating by. This was the first time I really felt I worked at a tech company. There were whole other languages being spoken very animatedly. The words were English - but...not... I consider myself reasonably tech savvy but this was a different language. Interesting.
