Happy Pride

San Diego Pride events have been happening since June and this
weekend is when the big parade and festival is scheduled
and I'll be working the whole weekend!

Saturday morning is the parade and because HP was
given the Stonewall Award this year, I get the honor along
with two other employees to ride in some type of special car waving at the peeps.
How cool is that - the award part.

After the parade I'll be working at the booth but doing the thing that
I love to do the most; taking pictures of the LGBT community.
Along with the beer and leather booths, HP's booth will be one of the busiest
at the festival. We'll be taking pictures, printing them out and
helping our customers download their SD cards onto DVD's.

Two full days of interaction with our customers hearing
the good and sometimes the bad and in the end, they
walk away knowing that HP is a big part of Pride
because we're out there being a part of the community.

And come Monday morning, I'll be exhausted and more than likely
a major C on the shirt below.

Have a great weekend everyone and see you all on Tuesday!

YEA! Have a great weekend!

I didn't think about this before, but how does HP feel about your recent Mac conversion?

Jude said...

Becca....sshhhh. That's why it took me so long to convert. The rest of the family are still using HP hardware plus the printers, paper and ink are the very best so there's no replacements for printing. :)
