Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 96: CPCA's New Chicago Satellite Office?

Last week, I discovered that my colleague, Big Bee, was going to be in Chicago for the holiday weekend, meaning that our Midwest trips would have an overlap for several days.  We joked about meeting up to work remotely while we were both in the Windy City, and we ended up spending a couple of hours at Intelligentsia on E. Randolph this afternoon.  I think we've now established a new Chicago Satellite Office for CPCA!

We wrapped up our "Chicago Work Party" with a Happy Hour (aka Thirsty Thursday) at The Gage on Michigan Ave, and Mr. E joined us for that part of the fun. 

I don't think this could be any sort of more permanent arrangement, but it was definitely a good way to spend some remote work time with Big Bee, and I really enjoyed the wide-ranging nature of our conversation, as I learned more about her background and previous work experience.  She's been such a great addition to the CPCA staff, and Mr. E and I look forward to socializing with her and her partner, B.
