Today was a long-awaited day:

     Well, technically the anniversary was yesterday, but I chose Friday as the day to celebrate my 10th service anniversary at work. Wow, 10 years already. Didn't help when my coworker Corey told me he was 12 years old when I started my job!

     But really, I've been looking forward to this for a long time. Not just for the fun of a party with punch and coffee and cookies and brownies, or that I do NOT have to make a speech at it, either.

     And it was a treat to get a beautiful flower arrangement from my boss. And a bag of 3-way popcorn from Dawn (don't ask how much of it I've already eaten ;) and going out to lunch next week with Shelley and Kathy, nor can I forget the stack of work from Kyle!

     Most of all, the reason I've been looking forward to this date for so long is because of the $100 gift certificate that comes with it. (5 years brings a pen set, whoopee.) I had my choice picked out months in advance--spending spree at Borders, here I come!

     But actually, once the final certificate arrives in my mailbox, I don't plan to use it until November 17, since I want to get Wall-E when it comes out on DVD. I've waited 10 years already, what's another month! =)

I am sure looking forward to it...and I can't believe it's already been a full decade.

Congrats on the ten year work anniversary. Sounds like you had a fun day.
I sure miss that 3-way popcorn.

Enjoy spending your gift certificate.

It was quite fun, thanks! There was a little extra excitement involving Dawn and fake cockroaches in the afternoon.

The popcorn was delicious! Too bad it's a bit bulky for packing in luggage.

I certainly will! =D

*laughs* I was about to say 'How did I miss the photo link?!' and then saw you'd edited it in. Sounds like a fun day for you, me dear! ^-^

Enjoy the gift certificate and the popcorn!

It was indeed! =) And yes, I was too tired and lazy Friday night to deal with it then.

Thanks! The popcorn's just about all gone already, ahem...

Sounds absolutely fabulous...
Way better than a pen set!!

10 years IS a long time!! Gosh... I was a brat 10 years ago! (Haha... your brother would probably say some things never change...;)

Enjoy all the wonderful bits left from the celebration!

You can say that again!

You mean, a teenager? ;) Hem, well, certain similar things could be said of him!

Thanks! I certainly am. =)

I certainly will; it will be fun scheming until then as to what to get.
