My Last Day

Friday, October 16th, 2009: my last day at Microsoft after starting 5 years and 4 months ago…  wow.  I’m not exaggerating when I say that the day was largely surreal for me.  Here’s a quick recap of the festivities that transpired on my last day:

1) Time for lunch. The boys took me out to sushi for my last day lunch.  I can’t say it wasn’t delicious because that would be a lie.

2) Time for cake.
  Coincidentally, Friday was also Danielle’s last day at MSFT.  To celebrate, we ate ice cream cake. It was delicious:

4) Time to go.  Alright, pack your stuff up, turn in your corporate AMEX card, your laptop and your blue badge, among other things:

5) Time for drinks.  Semi-impromptu, Trent rallied the gang for some Happy Hour cocktails at Straits. I’m not gonna lie, I got tipsy.

Whelp, that about covers it.  Goodbye, Microsoft!!  Goodbye friends!!  It’s been real.
