Went to see Skyfall last night which I thought was pretty enjoyable. We went to Denny's before the film which was *not* something I would recommend. Oh, when I say 'we' I mean Jason and Rahul who are my New York counterparts who are showing me the ropes while I'm out here. They're under no pretence that Denny's is of any standard other than bottom rung, but see it as comfort food, which I would agree with. They're open 24 hours a day, so it's popular with late-shift workers and revelers, and the menu choice reflects this: infamous pre-hangover remedies that are offered with your choice of potato and cheese; platters of grilled meats with your choice of potato and cheese; or if you're grabbing a quick bite before a movie you can settle for just potato and cheese...

The offices, I should mention, are fantastic. Large and open planned with rich accented walls, it also has a huge kitchenette and snack area which can only be described as enthusiastically stocked. I was also lucky enough to be presented with my company swag today: a branded windbreaker, a branded mug, branded pens, branded notebook (moleskine) and, oddly, some screen wipes (unbranded). I've had a few rounds of introductions with the various teams posted here and it's good to see so many smiling faces.
I have a lot more training planned for the rest of the week as well as some client calls. Not sure what the plan is for this evening so we'll see what happens!
