GES Summer Picnic 2015

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 15, 2015, 10:22 PM

Shin's Journal

The last journal I posted was a pretty depressing one, so I'm glad to replace it and tell you guys a story about last Thursday which was the most awesome day in recent history, as opposed to the previous Tuesday, the worst day in recent history (which you read about).

Actually, last Thursday began with me walking out to drive to work in the morning and noticing that my car was leaning. We all know what that means - a flat tire. I must have gotten this thing while I was driving around in the ghetto the day prior in order to find the Dallas county tax office. I seriously bought these brand new tires not two months ago - I'll never miss the deadline for online vehicle registration ever again. Anyway, I didn't feel like dealing with this, so I simply drove Ryoseth-CP's car to work as he had the day off to recover from wisdom teeth extraction.

As it turns out, a director of Xbox is in town visiting the Xbox teams at our location and Thursday was the official 2015 picnic event! And my team was invited. I have to say, this is my very first corporate picnic event and I seriously had a blast. People said words and free food was had. Someone wore a dragon costume.

In addition to the free food (why the heck did I put mayo on my hot dog?), we got to play some games (news flash: I'm awful at cornhole), and dress up like idiots for a photo booth (which I will not be sharing the results of). There was also a snow-cone truck that would hand you ice and you could squeeze your own flavors! Turns out that I'm the only person too dumb for this, so the lady came out and made mine for me. I got sour blueberry, pineapple, and pickle juice. Yep, it was awesome.

People shot hoops. People putted. People ate crazy snow cones. People played [non]beer pong.

Then there was a raffle! There were some pretty fun prizes from the company store (and other places) involved. I got two tickets to put in and Xbox gave me a ticket to put in for Ryoseth-CP since he was out. WELL, he won a $50 GameStop gift card, what the heck!

After the raffle is the best part - the hot pepper eating contest! Me and about 7 dudes faced off to see who could eat 5 whole, fresh serrano peppers the fastest. Yeah, I won. Even though all of my bodily fluids tried to escape through my face after eating the peppers, it was still very exciting and I felt awesome. Then I drank lots of milk.

Once the hot pepper challenge was finished, we took the GES Summer Event sign outside and took a big ol' picture. I went to my desk and resumed working after the photo was taken - something I really regret. Not only did I forget to say bye to the director before leaving, but I missed BINGO. One of my coworkers won a smartphone projector from bingo, which seems really awesome.

Anyway, it was a pretty fun day. I have some doofy photos of it below, if you want to see. Thanks for reading! Have you ever had a fun event or won a contest like this? Tell me about it!


Feature: Things I Like
I will be using this section of my journal to feature the things that I like; usually comics. More tiles will appear over time and will be arranged in alphabetical order.

Hello and thank you for inviting me to your contest! It does look quite fun but I'm sorry to say I do not think I'll have the free time to dedicate to entering it. I do wish you all the best, though!
