It's National Cold Cuts Day? (212.0)

That helps me deal with the fact that, after contemplating whether to eat my leftover spaghetti with crab for lunch, or for a quick dinner at work before the hockey game, I entirely forgot to bring it with me.

I've got a noon meeting that I sometimes bring lunch to, but I think I'm more likely to grab lunch on the way back from it. There are good sandwiches to be had at Mattin's, and I'll probably get an Italian sub.

Also, I keep forgetting to take home the carton of eggs keeyoo kindly brought in for me on Tuesday. I probably shouldn't put them in the car after work; they'd likely freeze in the 2-3 hours I'm at the game. Maybe I'll try to remember to grab them after the game instead. I'm sure they'll come in handy this weekend.

Nice surprises...

Doubletree Cookies!I hadn't gotten to the fifth paragraph of the meeting invite text for today's noon Project Management SIG meeting, so I was completely surprised to get there and find lunch waiting for us, paid for by the president of the Rochester chapter of PMI. The campus building where we were meeting does its own catering, so I assume they're the source of the pretty-good cold-cuts sandwiches, tasty cookies, and bags of chips. (I went with the Sun Chips after considering the Baked Doritos.) They also way over-ordered, so I was able to grab a spare sandwich to eat before the game.

The other nice surprise was the FedEx delivery this morning as I was getting ready to leave for work. I had congratulated @Doubletree on their tweet mentioning the opening of their 249th hotel, and asked if they were sending us all cookies to help celebrate. (They're the chain known for handing guests a warm cookie upon check-in.) They replied to ask for my address, and sure enough, today I got a tin of cookies.
