Well, this is awkward.

I'd like to tell you a few things that I think are fun things to know about Microsoft, but I'm not sure how to start posting on this blog again, now that I've called it quits with certification. I feel a little like you feel when you see your ex at a party, or something. When you want to say hi but then you think well that might be awkward, they've moved on, just leave it. But then you think don't be ridiculous, act like a grownup, for once, so you do go say hi, and everyone looks mildly uncomfortable and asks how your parents are and you think to yourself:

Well, this is awkward.

But here we are.

So, hi.


How're your mom and dad doing? They good?

    Nonsense.  I've been reading your blog for a while now and find your adventures and stories to be good reading, informative and a great way to break up the day.  So keep posting, and as always... you rock!

    Well, for one thing you'll need to update the title or at the very least the subtitle of the blog..

    "So, a booth babe and a geek walk in to a bar..."

    Marketing talks about IT pro and developer certification and the MCP program.

    Hi, I (we) are fine, how are you?  😉

    We do like to hear about your new job. Do you enjoy your new job?

  4. So... how've you been?

    Keep up the giggles Trika!

  5. We can still be friend's, right? says:

    I'm good. Work's going ok.

    How's your family? They good to?

    Wanna grab a bite to eat later? You know, as friends. Maybe catch up a little, for old time sakes.

  6. Parents are good. My flight back from Seattle was uneventful. But first class does rock. Yes, you are a slacker. Ken Rosen and Joanne Lin DID manage to meet me for lunch at Wild Ginger. And you gave me twenty minutes to get to Pikes Place to meet you! 🙂

    Nothin but love for you tho.

    Well, the alternative is nobody says hi to each other because it would be awkward, and then you both stand around thinking the other is stuck up for not talking to you.  Somebody's got to be the strong one and say hi despite the awkwardness.  🙂

    Glad you joined the party. You look good. Still wearing this green title and same text-msg i see? Grab a drink and tell us some good stuff once a while.

  9. Ken says:

    Yes, this is awkward.  Fortunately there are no kids involved.

  10. Oh my, how awkward..

    Erm, .... The weather is nice, isn't it?

    Wow, traffic was busy today, eh?

    Well, I guess I'll see you around!

    Hey, lets get some more Trika back into the social scene.. there's more fish in the sea! get out there! 🙂

    Thanks Wayne!

    Oh, Jim K good point. I haven't gotten that far. I'm a wreck over here. An embedded wreck.

    @Richard: is good, I think. More on that soon. It's weird to not know what you're talking about all of a sudden, after really knowing what you're talking about for a good minute.

    MDA, sorry I missed you. Now I'm more sorry, since you guys had a fancy lunch.

    @We Can Still... Sure, as long as its "just friendz," if you know what I mean. This guy I know was in a hip hop dance troupe in the early 90s called JUST FRIENDZ and they wore cut off overalls, with one strap hanging down. I just love that.  

    Liza, RIGHT! I'm totally not stuck up. Just, um, awkward.

    Deniz, the years have treated you well, too, if you know what I mean.

    Um, gee, um, they are ok. They still ask about you. How's yours? Good, good, say, um, did that, um, stuff ever go away? GOOD! Mine too. Well, uh, keep in touch, the cats miss you.

    w00t, and she's outta here!
