Congrats Mr. Q. on Your Promotion!

Today, Mr. Q. finally pinned on the grade he was selected for last summer. There's nothing quite like being told, "You're doing such a good job that we'd like to pay you more - in a year and a half."

At the promotion ceremony, his boss had lots of nice things to say about Mr. Q. However, he almost turned it into an R-rated event by talking about how Mr. Q. and I met at a crud tournament, and how I must have been really impressed by how Mr. Q. "used his stick." Thereby also demonstrating that he doesn't know the first thing about crud, since it is played entirely without sticks.

The only disappointment was that the short powerpoint slideshow I put together of semi-embarrassing photos of Mr. Q. didn't get shown. Some of the photos may or may not have been chosen in retaliation for my hypothetical anger earlier in the week. Which, of course, they weren't, since the anger was only hypothetical. At any rate - I'd been talking to a couple of the interns in Mr. Q.'s office about it, so they knew what to expect, but somehow it never occurred to them to request a projector. So nice that I've been staying up late every night this week to get this put together. Obviously time well spent.

I am a little freaked out about the fact that Mr. Q. now holds the same rank my dad retired from.

Congratulations to Mr. Q! (is he in the military?)

I'm so sorry to hear about the slide-show SNAFU. How utterly disappointing to work so hard on something like that, all for naught.

I'm going to have to go back and read your links on crud, because I have NO idea what it is! ;)

Yes, congrats to Mr. Q!

And yay the pay raise (always *my* favorite part)!!!

Heh, the only ceremony I've ever been to was a commissioning (okay and one recommissioning) and it was embarassing for me too.
 
It's true - Mr. Quandary is actually Major Quandary. Which sounds pretty funny now that I think of it.

Not that Captain Quandary wasn't funny too, but it reminded me of our pre-dating days. He was telling me this story about how after a particularly bad break-up, he decided he was just going to have female friends and not date, and so created a character called "Captain Platonic." When he told me the story, I was newly divorced and burning through one bad dating experience after another, so I asked if I could be his sidekick, "Friendship Girl."

And we all know how well that worked out.
