Johnny Cakes and Chardonay!!!

This is a private joke between BigDaddy and I. I just love to say it out loud in the Tech Dept. The reaction I get from my Dev’s is always fantastic. I still have this urge to go streaking in the office one day.
They are all so super uber conservative, in a very good way. Those that are not mask it very well behind a shield of professionalism. I love them all so much. Never had such a great group of peeps to work with. I still miss my StepheePoo like crazy. I need to send her a basket of hooks so I can get her into this addiction as well and we can be swappie partners over the miles. I know shes going to be busy with school and her new life in Chicago, come winter though sista is going to need some warm scarves and mittens!
