It's Thursday! (Well, It Will Be In a Few Hours)

H is going out of town for work tomorrow and will be gone for six days. My Thursday Thirteen today is thirteen reasons you should care about H's trip.

1. I will be lonely, which might make you feel sad.
2. He will miss English Dandy Friday AGAIN.
3. I was totally going to take a picture of H and his English Dandy outfit and publish it here for the world to see.
4. H likes to pose for pictures, so it was going to be a fantastic picture that you would have loved.
5. I normally share most of the boring stuff from my day with H, but now I am probably going to bore you with it.
6. For example, I had another weird elevator encounter today.
7. I just spent 15 minutes trying to find the prior elevator encounter this is related to, but either I never wrote about it, or I just suck at searching my own archives.
8. So the back story is that one time this guy and I were riding in the elevator, and it went from the first floor to the 20th, paused, and then went back to the first floor, which was a problem since both of us were trying to go to floors higher than 20.
9. Today I ended up on the elevator with the same guy again. This time, the elevator went up to 24, then just stopped, and the buttons that had been lit for the floors we had selected all went out. Before the elevator could decide to go back down to 1 again, I re-selected my floor, the elevator actually went up to my floor, and the doors even opened. It was amazing!
10. Yes, when H is gone, I will have a lot more stories like that. Please still come back and read my blog. Or I will be even lonelier!
11. Does that make me sound desperate? I'm not. I don't care whether you read my blog or not. (Please read it.)
12. I will probably have some stories of H's trip to share with you.
13. One of H's coworkers who shall be traveling with him is named Christopher Ch@mp@gne. I think that if you travel with Christopher Ch@mp@gne, you will automatically have good stories to share.

That's funny... I used to know a Chris Campagna. We called him Chris Champagne. Coincidence??? I think not. ;-)

Chris Campagna is an excellent name (almost as good as Champagne)! Do you think H's coworker is your old friend and is just using a pseudonym???

have a good time!

YellowRose said...

That's an awesome name, Chris Champagne! Love it! Might be because I like Champagne, but I do really like the name! LOL

Don't get to lonely!! Happy Thursday!

#13...how could there NOT be good stories when you travel with a person named Champagne?

Thanks for visiting my 13!

I used to work with a girl who's last name was Drinkwine. We should get them together for a party!

Have fun being somewhat "single" for a few days!

Travelling with coworkers can be an iffy proposition. If you think you know them well, you might find out things about them you'd rather not (usually after a shower in the hotel room). If you don't know them, it can be hard to be yourself and cut loose. Luckily, the last time I had to room with someone, it turned out to be like a fraternity road trip. I hope "H" has a good time with his traveling companion!

You crack me up. That's really all I have to say. :-)

Guinness_Girl said...

Awesome list, R! Well, Chris Champagne and Ms. Drinkwine had better invite me to their party. Maybe I can find this guy I never knew but loved his name - Taylor Pancake. Heh.

Whinger said...

Yek. I hate business trips, both as the traveller and the one left behind.

There are few things as depressing as watching "Friends" on a hotel television because you're stuck in the suburbs of a foreign city.

I imagine it would be more fun with Chris, though.

Awww... I hope he comes back soon. Would love to see him in his English Dancy outfit. BTW...what IS that? :)

Yez said...

1. Rent "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" for when he gets back, for cathartic perspective.

2. A corporate travel agent I had the pleasure of dealing with was named Sunshine Rush :-}

In Quebec Champagne is quite a common name. Do you know if he has a bubbly personality?!

-R- said...

J. Andrew, I am being left behind, but I am sure H will see your comment too.

Yellow, I'm sure I'll be ok. I love the name too.

Natalie, that's what I think!

Prep, definitely! Too bad C.C. is married because Mrs. Drinkwine-Champagne would be an awesome name.

Size15, luckily H will have his own room. I'm glad your last trip with a hotel roommate turned out so well.

Stefanie, thanks! That is high praise, coming from you.

GG, I had better be invited to this party too. Taylor Pancake- I love it.

Whinger, I hope it isn't too bad for H. I have no idea what he is going to do in Dayton every night though.

OSG, you will have to read the other post to find out about the English Dandy outfit. Rest assured, it will be fabulous (said with a British accent).

Yez, oh that is a good movie idea and another great name.

Stinky, hmmm... I did not know that about the name Champagne. And, I must say, excellent pun.

I am alone for 7 days! We need to hang out because I feel your pain. Good luck!
