Monday night I packed my suitcase with the essentials - clothes, toothbrush, iPod and Zeke. Zeke was all for the trip until he realized that he was flying coach, at which time he decided to stay home. On Tuesday I flew out to SFO, and the past two days I have been rocking the awesomeness that is Google HQ.
I have spent the past two days absorbing the incredibly creative energy that seems to resonate through the Google campus. Magic happens in these walls, and it is an energizing experience to hang out, and around, the people that pulls the strings behind the scenes and makes the magic happen. I've also been absorbing the fantastic food in the Google Cafe's. Its goodness can be summed up in two words: Pasta Bar.

After the sun rise I hiked some of the trails, and did some geocaching in the surrounding park, and ended up at the office just in time for breakfast (omelet bars are awesome too). I then walked around HQ and took some pictures. I have been here several times before, but I wanted to show off the place for my wife, and for you good folks in blogger land.
I spent the rest of the day working and toiling. After work we played laser tag, and then went out to Palo Alto to check out a co workers plane that he is building in his garage.
Tomorrow is the Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Christmas Party at the Computer History Museum, which promises to be a rockin good time, so I am going to sign off and get some rest so I can rock out old school. I'll blog some more as my trip unfolds.
