Welcome to the Scope-Tech CYBER-Monday extravaganza. Check out all the other bloggers' contributions in the comments section below. And "Thanks" to all the bloggers, active and retired who participated.
For those of you who may be new here, I'm Scope. Shortly after starting this blog, I ran across a fellow blogger, we seemed to hit it off, and well, if you want to read the long story, jump back to 2009 / 2010 on the list over there –>, but we met, fell in love, got married, and are now living our happily ever after.
Work, on the other hand… We're in the crunch time of a year or so long project that is going to roll out at the end of February. I'd been working from 8:00 to 6:00 or 6:30 most nights for the last few months. And then, as of 2 weeks ago, the person who was the project lead is no longer with the Firm. While we have a contractor in from the vendor to assist, I've now added an extra hour to my work day trying to catch up on all the stuff she was doing, coordinating with the contractor, and desperately trying to sneak in a few minutes each day to keep my portion of the project somewhat on track.
I bet you were wondering about my Thanksgiving dinner. Well, we assembled at my sister's place, where she had a beautiful spread set up.
Working clockwise around the plate, we have our stuffing (or is it dressing) at noon, some grilled asparagus, grilled sweet potatoes, grilled turnips, and grill Brussels sprouts. At the bottom of the plate are two yeasty rolls, some white meat turkey with some cranberry sauce, and some dark meat turkey, because I don't discriminate. And the bull's-eye is mashed potatoes and gravy. On the outside looking in is some whole kernel corn, and a nut brown ale called "Moose Drool". Believe it or not, the grilled vegetables absolutely stole the show as far as I was concerned. So, Candy, that really doesn't count as "plating" does it?
