Happy Friday, and happy Royal Wedding Day, Pineapple fans! I know some of you woke up and watched it live…admit it. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. I plan on watching the coverage when I get home from work this afternoon. And if you’re in the Tulsa area, you can stop by Merritt’s Bakery today and pick up a free slice of cake! Maybe I should do that in addition to my scones…it’s not every day a Royal Wedding happens, right? I wonder if the Merritt’s cake looks anything like the royal cake does:
It’s been a busy Friday morning so far at Pineapple HQ. Jay is out of the office today, as he is flying to west Texas to speak to a group of legal professionals on the art of social media. Thank goodness for technology; he can’t escape from us that easily! I told him to go visit the scene of the Baby Jessica well site catastrophe, but he wasn’t making any plans to do so.
Tomorrow is Jake’s birthday, and we had big plans to have a lunch for him, but due to all of the craziness happening today, we are postponing until next week. I hope he forgives us! We’ve got three Pineapple birthdays in the next 16 days…hopefully that means three fun lunches! Jake’s is more of a milestone, though, being that it’s his 18th, and Jay and I are just marking one more year of the 30s. We still deserve lunch, though, right?
Barlow and I just wrapped up a conference call with our client CreditPoint Software, in regard to their upcoming production. It’s official; the Pineapple People are heading to the Big Apple! I’m incredibly sad that I don’t get to go, since I adore New York City, but someone has to stay behind and hold down the fort. Jay and Barlow will head up the production, and it’s going to be amazing! The shoot will take place at Grand Central Terminal; if you’ve never been there, it’s truly a gorgeous place. The fact that it has been featured in so many movies and television shows is really neat; the Pineapples are in the big leagues now. The production will take place in June, so I’m really kicking into high gear now with travel arrangements, and dealing with the nice folks at Grand Central. They have been very kind and helpful so far, which makes my job much easier. And I was thrilled to see that Pineapple’s favorite airline, Southwest, begins service to LaGuardia the very day we are planning to fly in. It’s fate, I tell you.
Last night was a sad one for fans of “The Office”, as we said goodbye to Michael Gary Scott, the most over-the-top, ridiculous, clueless and kindhearted boss on television. I was glad it was an extended episode (52 minutes), and I was very sad to see it end. Yes, I cried. I don’t cry during movies (because I know they’re fake) and yet I welled up in the final scenes of the farewell episode. How pathetic can I get? At least there are still three more episodes left of the season; it won’t be the same without Michael, though.
Well, Pineapple fans, I’m off to take care of a few things. Have a fabulous Friday, and I’ll see you on Monday!
