Favorite PCEO Memories

Phone and chair being rigged with “exposive” devices.  What a welcome to a new workplace!

Literally running into everyone I work with (around those cubicle walls).

Kassel dumping can of Diet Coke on my head at staff meeting.  Why DID he do that?

Power Puzzling with Jan Lebens, who is the uncontested queen of jigsaw puzzles now.  I give up.

Late nights (dancing) in the engineering lab.

Michael Hudson’s parties … no wait … I don’t remember those.

Cubicle decorating for birthday celebrations.

My “Bozo Brain” buddy, Mike (Kinion).


If I could do it over again

Regrets, I have none.  (Who said that?  Oh shoot, I’m terrible at names, always have been).

Life since PCEO

I’m back in high school … and it’s nothing like I remember it being (of course, now I’m the teacher).

Been teaching at Sabin-Schellenberg Center, North Clackamas School District for 9 years.  Teach CAD and Architecture (sort of).

Lots of travel, mostly to Central America, some Europe.

Adopted my wonderful daughter, JinMei, in 2000 at the age of 8 months.  Am currently adopting her 10 year old sister, also from China.  Hope to travel in July or August, 2004.

May never be able to retire, but at least I get summers off.  Too busy and happy to care.
