Earlier this month, we had an outdoor movie night at Google. The movie was Back to the Future, which is one of my favorite movies. Having a movie night is fun. Having a movie night showing Back to the Future is geeky fun. Having a movie night showing Back to the Future with a DeLorean standing by is Googley fun.
Thanks to Jason for taking my picture.
I ended up leaving early due to the cold (it turns out I was actually sick), but I still had a good time and might give my Back to the Future DVDs a long-overdue screening when I go back home in September.
Shortly after the movie night, we learned that we were all getting new helmets. Google had given away helmets before, but the company has grown a lot since the first giveaway, so they decided it was time for a refresh. It’s a very practical gift, and I really appreciate it! Now I keep one helmet at home for my weekend rides, and my Google-provided one at work for when I bike across campus. Here’s a picture of Reid wearing his new helmet in front of the colorful bikes we use for inter-building transportation.
I promise that there are times when we get actual work done.
