The Gift of Free Stuff Friday

Fridays are not always the best day of the week. They usually involve very early mornings for some of the staff and can be slightly stressful at times. But this Friday was different.

It began like normal with the lucky early risers being treated to bagels by our president, Jason Roussos. Then things started getting good:

At 11:30 am, Mid-Tex arrived with a BBQ lunch:

Everyone was satisfied with the day's delights, but the free food didn't stop coming. By 3 pm, we had received not one, but TWO gift baskets full of cookies, dried fruit, cake and an assortment of nuts:

Needless to say, we were stuffed.
