So I’m still on the road - in Irvine, CA - and I’m feeling happy so I thought I’d share :) So...
We had a good board meeting today – I had a strategic initiative for which I wanted mindshare, and after a productive discussion was able to make good progress. After work I drove up here – was treated like a king by the Irvine Marriott people – and took a great ride up the coast to Bolsa Chica. On the way back I had a tailwind and flew down along the beach; I love that feeling where you seem to be stationary while the Earth is spinning beneath your tires. A quick shower and then on to Il Fornio for an admirable strip steak, rare, with a nice Oregon Pinot. (Yes, I confess, I am a carnivore.) I had a cute waitress who flirted shamelessly, and comped me a tiramisu for dessert. Paired with an ’80 Grahams port it was wonderful. (Yes, I confess to a tragic weakness for vintage port.) Overall a fantastic meal experience.
So here I am, typing up notes from the day, feeling rather pleased with myself, and thought I’d share the feeling. I hope YOUR day was as good!
