Email irony

I try to avoid talking specifically about my job here – it’s not pertinent – but I have earlier been up-front about the fact that I am a state employee, so what the hell.

I had to chuckle when this showed up in my work email 10 minutes ago, considering recent events..”

To: Virginia State Employees
From: Virginia Department of Emergency Management
Date: March 5, 2008
Subject: Statewide Tornado Drill

Tornado Preparedness Day is March 18, 2008. The program begins with the annual statewide tornado drill at 9:45 a.m. During this time, schools, businesses and families have the opportunity to practice their tornado safety plan as if a tornado warning had been issued in their area.

Thanks, but I took care of that yesterday.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
