Thank you, Deskey!

We got this is the mail today from my work…

That was so nice of them. Thank you, Deskey.

Crisis averted.

I thought I had lost my Polaroid CUBE. I hadn’t been able to locate it for about a week. I’m usually very good with my electronicals and every day carry items, and very rarely do I misplace them. But I was really beginning to think my little CUBE was a goner. I inadvertently looked behind my computer monitor at work today and there it was…

I’m a ding dong. I wonder how long it’s been back there? 😀📷❤️

Donald Deskey on CBS Sunday Morning.

Our company’s namesake, Donald Deskey was featured on CBS Sunday Morning

“Sunday Morning” looks back at the career of Donald Deskey, an advertising man, and designer behind New York City’s Art Deco showcase (and of many consumer products), who died on April 29, 1989 at the age of 94.

And via the Deskey website…

Donald Deskey pioneered the idea that design shapes modern life. He designed Radio City Music Hall and helped reinvent the humble chair. When he saw the need for clarity in the supermarket, he helped invent modern branding. By building from core shared values, he created enduring brands that inspire us to this day.
We are his people.

And I’m proud to call myself one of his people. 😀👍❤️

My 5-year anniversary lunch.

There was a lunch at Arnold’s to celebrate my 5-year anniversary today. I had a burger and a Braxton Graeter’s Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout

It’s nice to feel appreciated. 😀🍔🖐️🍾❤️

Celebrating big wins.

We celebrated a big win this afternoon at Deskey…

Taken with Instagram. 😀🍾❤️

Bakersfield Taco Bar.

An incredible taco bar from Bakersfield showed up in one of the conference rooms at work today. There were big tubs of short rib and pollo rojo and Bakersfield queso…

Look at all that delicious Bakersfield salsa…

And of course, there were tubs of Bakersfield’s famous guacamole…

It made for a very unexpected but pretty terrific lunch…

I wish stuff like this would show up in the office every day. 😀🌮❤️

5 year anniversary.

Yesterday marked my 5-year anniversary at Deskey. When I got up to my office on the sixth floor this morning, I found this on my desk…

I have it pretty good. Thanks to Deskey for a great first five years! Cheers to the next five being even better! 😀🖐️5⃣🍺❤️

Seen and noted.

Check out this old car parked outside of our office when I was leaving to go to my second to last physical therapy this afternoon…

It had the old rumble seat and all that. Pretty neat. 😀🚗❤️

Opening Day Parade Party.

They’ve kind of made a mess of the start of the baseball season this year. The season officially started last Thursday but the first Reds game was rained out and played on Friday. In Cincinnati, there’s always the big Findlay Market Opening Day Parade before the first game and it’s always been on Opening Day for as long as I long as I’ve lived in Cincinnati. But this year’s parade wasn’t until today. Because I guess the parade has to be on a Monday for some reason. Today, we also had our annual Opening Day Party at work. There was big grill out with all sorts of food…

And we played a bunch of different games like pin the baseball on the catcher…

It made for a very fun afternoon at work celebrating the return of another baseball season to Cincinnati. 😀⚾️🍔🌭❤️

Happy Pi Day!

Today is March 14th, 3.14. And that means it’s Pi Day! What better way to celebrate Pi Day than with pie? At work, we celebrated Pi Day with a good old fashioned pie baking contest with two categories: sweet pies and savory pies…

This goat cheese pie looked interesting…

As did this Reuben pie…

Either that or I was just really ready for lunch. There were seven sweet pies and four savory pies locked in a battle for Deskey pie supremacy.

After everyone had tried all the pies and cast their vote for their favorite, there was a mini pie eating contest between two of my colleagues which has to exist somewhere online because…

It was the world’s slowest pie eating contest. In fact, I’m not entirely certain that it ever reached a conclusion. It very well might be still going on. And then it was time to hand out some prizes…

A bourbon pecan pie was the clear winner on the sweet side…

And it was my favorite too. My favorite on the savory side was the Reuben pie which was the runaway winner of the savory pie category…

It was a really fun and delicious way to celebrate National Pi Day. 😀🍰🏆🍕❤️
