The Super Friends & Two Napping Brothers

Part 1: The Super Friends
Last time I wrote was just after Christmas. (The ode to Beth didn't work by the way.) The kids got several DVDs for Christmas, but our DVD player was broken. Michael & I went to Best Buy on Saturday to buy a new one that was recommended by The Boss (a.k.a. Christie Davis). Michael had also been watching some DVDs of old, old Superman cartoons the past few weeks, so Beth and I decided to get him a Super Friends DVD. Yes, this is the Super Friends that we all watched as kids. Now the big thing is for Michael to dress up like Superman and Elizabeth to dress up like Wonder Woman. Here is the evidence. Please don't cry from laughing too hard at Elizabeth's get up (if you want the full effect, click on the picture and view it @ 100%). Oh, my belt apparently makes a good Magic Lasso.



Part 2: Two Napping Brothers
The kids were pretty wound up and whiny this afternoon. Even Oscar, who is always a sweetheart (like his Daddy), had to have a couple of timeouts. Finally, Beth asked him if he wanted to take a nap and he said yes. Two minutes later he's sound asleep. This was at 3:45. At 4:45 Beth went upstairs to wake him up and what does she see, Michael sound asleep in the bed with his brother. Michael had just been talking to me minutes before that, but I guess he decided he was tired and took a nap on his own. Michael did tell me that he didn't sleep good last night because he was thinking about Star Wars all night, which is his other current love. Anyway, it was such a precious moment with Michael and Oscar. Oscar had the biggest grin on his face when I woke him up and he saw Michael napping with him. Of course, they'll be up until at least 10 tonight and will oversleep for school tomorrow, but at least it made for a cute picture.

No more trips to Vietnam

Well, last week was a big week for me. I decided to leave FCG and return to work for Coca-Cola Enterprises. I had been talking with the people I know at CCE since late last year about working with them and they finally had a position open up a couple of weeks ago. I'm excited to go back there and work on the business side of the company versus the IT side. I start on Apri l16. I will be working in the Revenue Management Department as the Forecasting & Planning Manager. Essentially I will be the business process owner, facilitator, and coordinator of all forecasting and planning activities within the company. That involves working with all of the regional and corporate business units to ensure that the tools and related processes are thoroughly integrated across finance, revenue management, supply chain, logistics and sales. I will also be responsible for managing all of the support tools and solutions, so I still get to be a Project Manager. This is a big job with lo

Dublin & Beyond

I arrived in Dublin Wednesday evening. Somehow the 1-hour flight from Heathrow made it in 30 minutes. How is that even possible? I'm staying at The Marker Hotel again. I stayed at The Marker when I first came to Dublin two years ago. Back then, it was their grand opening. This is one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. Incredible service (more on that in a bit). Thursday and Friday I was teaching a 2-day Tableau class at the Facebook office. Since I was last here, Facebook has moved into a new office right next to The Marker. Facebook Dublin's new home From the 5th floor looking down at the cafeteria The rooftop has spectacular views of the entire city Thursday evening, my good friend Ivan took me to a local eatery called Lolly & Cooks. We kind of had to go here since nothing else was open. All of the pubs stop serving food at like 5:30pm. It's strange! We enjoyed a light meal of fish before taking on these amazing desserts. I went for the r

Double Chocolate Chip Dream Cookies

If you love chocolate, these are the cookies for you. The name says it all...Double Chocolate Chip Dream Cookies. Indeed, they are a dream! It takes about 10 minutes to make the batter, then eight minutes to cook. You can be eating these in less time than it takes to watch an episode of The Office. To make them vegan:  Use 1/4 cup of applesauce (from Whole Foods in the UK) for each egg Replace the butter with margarine (make sure it's stick margarine) Use dark chocolate chips (you can get a 2KG bag of chocolate chips at Costco).  Unlike last time, when I used tub margarine and melted it too much, use stick margarine and let it come to room temperature to soften. This made a HUGE difference.  They're super delicious! Enjoy!
