Picture was taken 2 minutes ago. Sitting at my desk in the data-center.

You have a desk?  :question:

You're in an office?   :question: :question:

My world feels a little off-kilter at the moment.

I completely understand. It's hard to imagine The Dude abiding in such an environment. Lol

It's not my favorite place. And completely unnecessary. But alas, the suits must be appeased on occasion.

Still, when I show, I park my motorcycle right at the building entrance on the internal aircraft taxiway side, (on the tarmac).
They can clearly view it (and know I'm at the office) from their executive office windows.

It's gotta urk a few.

Okay...everything has snapped back into focus.  Equilibrium restored.

When this is the corporate photo, it says that THIS is a guy who ain't gonna wear no steenkin' tie and appreciates a good pair of boots!

LOL

That's STILL a glamour shot. I was sat down in a makeup chair and 2 woman went to work on me. About 15 minutes of primping. Nice smelling stuff, I admit.
(I imagine a bit of photoshop too)
The out-of-focus Lear 60 behind me would make a much better subject.

Yea, I'm lucky they put up with me.

They have enough pictures of people wearing suits in their leadership photos.  You bring a certain quality that lets the company stand out as something different.  Much better than a staged photo of everyone hanging off the back of that Lear in flight...one guy with his hat still in place.

Since we're talking about boots... Sidi ADV-Squeakers will urk the rest of 'em :)

When I'm in the office ~ once a month I'm surrounded by one of two types: Hip twenty something Northern VA software developers, or type-A sales/VP suit and tie individuals that are closer to my age. Neither of them understand each other, and I can't really identify with either group. Makes for some awkward small talk at times. I think we all just respect our talents/backgrounds as we have significantly different interests and personalities.

After having the pleasure of meeting you (and her) in Romney, I immediately concluded that you have gotten an early start on a degree in "Abiding". Lol

You never really graduate, of course, but you do, at some point, finally find that most folks give up requiring you to conform. As much, anyways. ;)

Keep wearing those squeaky boots and long hair to meetings.

Crap. You're still a young guy.

Indeed. Before our youngest was born we were looking at being 38 with three kids in college.  Hard to identify with people my age, most of them are just having children themselves. I guess that's why my wife and I get along, we both do things ass backwards.

I will definitely continue to on the path to a degree in Abiding, Bruce. Humbled, and have some large cowboy boots to live up to!
