Today is Cinco de Mayo, here in San Diego is it also party time in some areas. And our company president, Robert C. Silkey of Einstein Industries may this day a special day to all employees. He opened up what he calls it a town hall meeting. Where we were all in the parking lot and talked about the future plans and present actions being taken by the company. He also answered all annonymous emails from the anonymous board and takled them very well. I believe he has please everyone and seemed honest about what can be done, what cannot be done and what will be done at Einstein Industries, Inc.
This meeting ended early as everyone was invited to the Cinco de Mayo party at his house. And after printing out some maps, and stayed for a while to wait for Mook work on some Flash stuff, we drove away heading to Robert’s place as Mook followed where I went. I rarely get lost with a map, but that day, I got lost a lot of times and I think I was passing the streets I need to turn in to. Maybe it was also because I was also keeping an eye on Mook if he was also still following behind, while I also paid attention to where we were going and I did not seem to see the right streets i needed to turn to.
After driving and we stopped for a second at 7-11, and asked the UPS guy that was there on how to get to Robert’s place, it was already 4pm and Mook also needed to pick up his wife after work. And I felt sorry for him and guilty since he was following me and I got lost, and so we both got lost. And we decided that I will go to the party and he will go and pick up his wife. Mook told me to tell hi to everyone and enjoy myself telling the story.
That time we were past Sea World already, and we drove following the instructions that I still can remember given by the UPS guy. Sea World Drive, just go straight, you will go over the bridge going over the 5 highway and once you get down, that is Morena Boulevard. I got to Morena without any problem, now, as I drove along Morena, I just didn’t see where I had to turn and I got to a point where I drove until it seemed the end and drove back. I noticed Morena and West Morena and I just gave up using too much gas already.
Sorry Mook also for the gas and time. If ever you were late for picking up your wife, tell her sorry also.
Well for me, it was another tour of San Diego.

Me too… I think we “EI” needs a company bus, for the company functions. That way we could all ride together. 🙂 As a team!
