I shall call it, a "Mini-Reunion"

This past Saturday was what I have dubbed a "mini-reunion" of sorts. Please note that as I say and type "mini-reunion" I make the quote mark gesture in the air with my index fingers to accentuate the term, not unlike Dr Evil from the Austin Powers flicks. A former co-worker and his wife were visiting California to attend the Coachella Music Festival, which is just down the road a piece from Palm Springs. A small group of friends made the drive out to join them as well, and we met for lunch on Saturday. With spouses/other halfs, we were a group of eight for lunch, but I managed to get a photo of the four of us who worked together on the same team for a few years. The photo above, here we are, from left to right with names and nick-names too: Shannon, "The Hawaiian Woman/Feather Queen", Todd "Toddington", Ben "BenWu", and me "Palm Springs Savant". I am lucky to have worked with them, they made work interesting and fun.

above left: The group of eight, pausing for photos at La Casita Mexican restaurant, and above right: My friend Ben and his lovely wife Natalie. She's smokin' hot. If she were a president, she'd be "Babe-raham Lincoln".
Anyway it was a nice "mini-reunion" for us. The rest of the gang went onto Coachella- way too crowded and noisy for but those crazy kids will be kids I suppose. Happy Monday to you...

The nicknames of your former coworkers are hilarious! Why is it that we must title our closest coworkers (whether present or past?) it's because it's fuN!! :)

Ah, reunions warm the cockles of me heart, they do.

How was the food at La Casita?

And what is Coachella? All it makes me think of is the well known leather goods brand...
