Free Bagel Fridays

I’ve been working in the Yahoo! Santa Monica office for about a month now, and I’m still really enjoying it.

Today, like all Fridays, is a Free Bagel Day. In the kitchen are dozens of bagels and about 6 different kinds of cream cheese. Reminds me of the Free Bagel Tuesdays we used to have in 1998 when Y! was at 3400 Central Expy. That was before we quintipled in size and got all corporate and stuff.

When I walk in the door each morning, Dionne greets me by name. She’s not reading it off my badge; she actually knows who I am. It’s like working for a small company again. And I didn’t even need to switch jobs!
