I feel like Miss Mary Ann...

Do you remember her? from Romper Room? am I dating myself? At the beginning of every show, she's look in her handheld mirror and "see' the kids that were on the show..or 'watching' the show, you were quite lucky if she mentioned your name (even if it was to all the betsey's in the world).

How does this apply to me you say? I was on linked in this weekend. Linked in is like a 'professional's' myspace. You list your past job history and recruiters look at it..old colleages..it's like an online resume..and people can even 'recommend' your work, so it's like your personal referrals are right there...anyway..i digress. I was on it this weekend because someone had requested to add me to their network..while i was there I found my old VP as well as an additional bunch of old colleauges. Luckily i requested to add them and they all agreed to be my 'friends'.
When i went on today..it said there were 50 new gymboree connections. I pretty much 'knew' all of them...at least by name. I truly felt like Miss MaryAnn...between the finding them, and that fuzzy feeling of old home week. Most all were from my first 'stint' at Gymboree (mind you i was only gone for 7 months), and all brought back that warm fuzzy feeling from our time at Camelot. I even saw 'sweater vest' listed there, should you happen to read this old Prod people!!

Slacker Scrappers

Happy New Year....I've tried to post 3 times...but I've had some serious blogger/IE issues, and each time my post got eaten...bottom line...went to Park City and Salt Lake City over New Years..had a great time tooling around Park City...made it to TLC and AMM whie Pierre was in meetings..and had a supercalafragilisticexpealidocious catch up lunch with my dear friend, Susan Russell. Had camera in purse...no picture!! What the heck!?? Too much chatting I suppose.

Pierre will have to make many more trips out there (he's one of the project manager's for his firm project for the new Hospital in Riverton,so hope to post a picture for sure next time.
