Yesterday, our team did an offsite at the Ogden, a condo complex in downtown Vegas.
It was a fun and, hopefully, useful day that started at 6:30AM for me. There was team bonding, there was some back and forth about the direction of the team, and about everyone’s frustrations. We also took a tour of city hall, the future headquarters of Zappos. There are jails in the dungeon! We finished at the Vanguard, a cool little bar just down the street. We finished around 6PM, at which point, I went home, had some dinner (Shannon cooked; and it was pretty good!) and did some work. I closed the laptop around midnight, and hit the sack around 12:30AM.
Not more than 15 minutes later, the phone rings to wake me up, saying something happened to the pricing engine. 3 hours later, I finally got to go to bed, after an eventful 22 hour day. Needless to say, I was dragging ass today. I passed out for 3 hours when I got home, and completely missed the movie we wanted to go to tonight (50/50). *sigh* I feel like a doctor, but without the psychic benefit of getting to save people’s lives.
