Surprises galore!

Bloggie pals!!
 
My annual "team building" session for work is looming but this year, my employers have surpassed themselves with this invite! It almost makes the event bearable! LOL! Well, no it doesn't but look at the lovely invite!!

 
And the good Cap'n Alex J. Cavanaugh  surprised me with this fabulous accolade!!! Awwwww! I am BLUSHING!!  And that's not only because of his invisible underwear. Ahem.
Thank you Cap'n Ninja! You ROCK the best!!
 
 
Charlie says: I surprise the silly Gumster with my mighty leap!
 
 
Have a lovely week y'all!

I've heard about company retreats but I didn't know they were something people thought was actually a good idea. Our workplace occasionally runs a small convention to showcase the good work they do though. Because we work in the shop that raises the money we never see what happens with it, so they get us together once or twice a year and show us.

And with hushed silence, I'm in awe of that invite.

Look at you. Cool accolade and I can see you blushing! Rock on and y'all have a nice week. Now I'm saying "y'all", y'all.

Cheerio,

Tamago said...

Congratulations on the award! Yay you rock!! By the way, invisible underwear? I gotta go check :-)

That's a very mighty leap, Charlie! Have a great week!!

Summer Ross said...

Congrats and those silly cats- love the picture.
Have a terrific day!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

ALMOST bearable!
Glad you like your personalized award, Kitty. (Charlie and Gumtree would probably say it was purrsonalized.)

Julia Hones said...

Those sweet kittens are great acrobats! Lovely picture! Have a fabulous week, Old Kitty!

Katnip Lounge said...

gah! Office make-nice sessions...double gah!

Helena said...

Of course you deserve Alex's You Rock award! And may you rock on for many more fabulous literary years to come.

Gumtree and Charlie would appreciate the dilemma I put my kitty Kelly Kel in today - I cleaned out her kitty litter but forgot to give her clean litter and then left home for several hours. I came back to an empty kitty tub and a very impatient cat. But then she slept on my tummy for over an hour so I guess I'm forgiven.

I'm so glad I'm self employed!

Lynda R Young said...

Congrats to you for the Rocking award! You deserve it and more!

Hilary said...

Captain Alex is right.. you rock!

Marg said...

Wow, that is exciting about getting that accolade. Well done. The invitation looks good too. Gumtree, did that Charlie surprise you. Silly boys. Have a great day.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Couldn't you team build at a spa for the day? Or do some wine-tasting? Something fun?

Team building....gag!

Concats on the award and smooches to Charlie and Gumtree!

Theresa Milstein said...

Fab invitation and amazing poster from Alex. Of course you rock!

Charlier and Gumster enjoying spring. Awww.

Rick Watson said...

You are a rock star. That dang Alex beat me to the draw!
I suggest putting a fifth of vodka in your thermos and carry it in your lunch kit. That ALWAYs makes meetings more fun.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Tell Charlie we were very impressed with his big leap and we're sure Gumtree was amazed with his agility. Enjoy your "day off" Jenn.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Carol Kilgore said...

Have fun team building. Charlie and Gumtree could give lessons :)

Congrats!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Ho Old Kitty - I agree the thought of a "team building" session would horrify me! I do like the invite .. but ....... good luck!

Congratulations on the award .. and those invisible underwear pieces - where are they located?!

Hope today you're enjoying the sunshine in the garden with Charlie and Gumster ... Hilary

Pasha said...

Does big day out mean "Big day out of work" as in sick day? :))))

Chralie, give Gumtree those surprise lessons he needs to learn!

Tammy Theriault said...

That fancy invitation does make the team building thing sound cool, huh? Congrats on the "You Rock" award from Alex -- you do rock!! And yay for puss's magnificent leap! :-)

DWei said...

Congrats on the award!

Bellen said...

"Team building", eh? There's nothing more enjoyable than being forced to like people... Still, I hope it's a successful. Management may even mean well in this case.

KarenMcG said...

Great news, Old Kitty, on your award. Congratulations. Also what a nice invite. Sounds like fun.

That Charlie and Gumtree sure are a pair.

Maria McKenzie said...

You do rock, Kitty!

Btw, when I worked in libraries, I never got an invite like that! Have fun;).

I have never had a company retreat-they sound like fun initially-hopefully this one will be.

Say hello to the boys for me.

RaShelle Workman said...

Congrats on your award, Old Kitty. Well deserved. Have a great weekend. =)

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Love the photo, Kitty! Your lovely cats looks so happy outside. I ordered Peaches a cat harness. I'm scared she will run away if I just let her out, but she sits at the door looking at me when I am on the patio. Makes me feel horrible.

Katie Isabella said...

Oh my...company retreats and functions. Mommy said they make her shiver to think about. Ewwww. Talk about being in the spot light she said....whatever that means. xoxoxo

Charmaine Clancy said...

Perfect invitation design!

I'm sure he prefers a mightly leap to a mighty wing! woo woo!

As for the invisible underpants.... well, I'll say no more about that.

Rachna Chhabria said...

No comments on the invisible underpants ;)

You rock, so that award from Alex is rightfully deserved.
