Was in Arizona all Week

Returned last night.

It was my company’s annual Manager’s Conference, held this year in Scottsdale, AZ.

It was a week learning and laughing.

My colleagues are genuinely hilarious; I jackknife-laughed at least 100 times.

But I barely documented any of it.

These photos are it.

No one can see me documenting my outfit right now, right?…

For the first time ever, I travelled without my computer.

It felt freeing, loved it, will do it again.

It was an intense week, and now my mind is mush. Opened my laptop to blog and…

I completely forgot the password to my laptop.

Sat like this in a total blank. It went on for an hour. Eventually I had to dig out the sticky-note-backup from its hiding spot.

After I hit Publish, the rest of today will be spent on the couch sitting quietly, in jogging pants doing nothing. Absorbing.

Guys I’m an “executive” now, woah.

Here’s to a strong start to your week!

Good Text Size on an Instrument Cluster

I find the text and icons are too small on many instrument clusters, and poorly placed off to the side.

This cluster’s is large and clear, and placed directly in the centre. Proper.

(the above appears when Lane Departure is switched on/off)

This can be read using your peripheral vision,
leaving your eyes where they belong – on the road.

Found on the fully-redesigned 2016 Honda Civic.

Shopping Trick: Secondhand Stores in Rich Neighbourhoods

Castoffs from rich people are often high quality, luxury brand items that are well-maintained, if used at all. So secondhand, donation and thrift stores located in wealthy neighbourhoods tend to have better stock.

Found such a store while in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Found my new work purse.

Henri Bendel, retails for $300 USD, I paid $80 and had to cut the tags off.

 

 

It’s Nervous Driving Freshly-Painted Rims

We’re real busy with rims, so had to help with delivery. 

Can’t wrap them up tight because the paint is fresh, but a road bump could send them moving, one tiny hit would nick them, now they have to be re-done, bye profit and happy customer.

The nervousness comes from that I’m a driver a heart, everywhere I go it’s with sprit… but I’m also a complete airhead sometimes… no fast movements stay focused Keri, nice and easy onto the offramp… hey a new Golf R, oh cool how the caliper’s R shows through FOCUS Keri here comes a bump…

Non-car nerds: one tiny nick on a rim is unacceptable. If you’re not into rims this may seem extreme; it’s not.

18″ AMGs colour-changed to glossy black.

They came out beautiful; we produce high-quality results.
