For those of you who don’t know, I used to work for Mattel for around 2.5 years. There I did Macintosh Support and Project Management. Well today, my current employer, has been contracted to do some work for Mattel. I arrived at the Design Center with Thomas and Terry to meet with Robert Peck and T.D. It was so kewl being on campus again. I saw ALOT of familiar faces and alot of new ones. Within the first minute, I was recognized and then one after one I was running into old acquaintences. John Green came out and was headed out to the Tower. He was a little bit shocked. Then Dave Harper and Joe Reyes caught me as well as another analyst that I knew in the Tower when I worked there. Sherry who has been the first face you see at mattel was still staffing the front desk. We talked about my cooking adventure and Washington DC.
Robert finally came out and we shook hands. It was good to see Robert. Robert is running the game in the Design Center. Kevin who used to ride in our vanpool saw me and tipped off Tammy Abang that I was in the building and she came over from the Design Center to say hello. It was so good to see her. It will be interesting next week seeing all the familiar souls that I have worked side by side with for years.
Things seem a bit more organized there at Mattel and that is a welcoming thing. Robert seems on top of things. I will be the main contact for the Macintosh deployment. We will be doing a rollout of about 85 Macs. I will be on property for about 2-3 weeks.
Oh shit….I don’t have my powercord and I’m sitting here at the airport waiting for my flight to depart. Damn…what am I going to do?!?! Maybe they have one of those sotres where they sell universal adapters and one I can use on the plane!
Anyways….off to the last day of MacWorld for me. Talk to you tonite.
