POOR ERIK

Erik just emailed me this picture from work. Poor Erik, his job must be super hard. Let's see, two weeks ago he flew to Half Moon Bay and back just to eat lunch. Then, as if that weren't enough, today he gets to meet Harrison Ford who just happened to fly in for a tour of the company. I'm like, "Don't you EVEN start to complain about work."

The worst part is that Erik said to him, "Remember that one time in Indiana Jones when you found the Holy Grail, that was really cool." Okay, he didn't really say that, but he SHOULD have said something like that. How often do you get to meet Indiana Jones and make funny comments? Then again, if you're as lucky as Erik, you'll probably get another chance.

For those who are interested, here is a picture of Mr. Ford's plane:

  3. Len's just jealous that he didn't have the huevos to ask Han Solo in the flesh for a picture... I actual thought, these poor guys must get so hasseled everywhere they go! He was really gracious about it though. So I'm a dork. The sad part is that you didn't post a picture of his Sweet plane which was what I was looking at when I got the picture.

  4. I would've asked Harrison how he got his blue jeans to be sooo blue. Thats incredible, he must but those from Costco (like Dad)

  5. I didn't get to see Mr. Ford in the flesh. I did see his plane was immaculately and unnaturally clean for any plane, let alone a bush plane. It had leather seats and a full set of four $1,000 each Bose aviation headsets.

  6. Erik...the huge Star Wars fan meeting Hans Solo! Her could have at least done his chewbaca impression for Harrison!

  7. (caitlin)Good for you Erik! I wish I had the guts to ask a celebrity for a picture (the few times I ever have ran into one..nothing like Harrison Ford!)And who cares what Indiana Jones thinks, it's not like your going to see him again, and now you have the awesome proof!

  9. I'm so jealous right now. I love Harrison Ford. I've loved him since I was like 6 years old when I saw Star Wars (and remembered seeing it).

    I'll admit, though, that when I first saw that picture, I thought, "Is that a guy Erik works with?" I promised I just scanned over it, and then read the post. That's why I'll never get a picture with a celebrity -- I don't think I'll recognize him or her until its too late or too uncomfortable.

  10. No offense to your hero, Erik, but he looks terrible. Congrats, though. That is a sweet plane.

  11. That is super sweet! I won't be telling Greg about it though....he would just complain more about how boring/hard his job is....though yesterday I think he played tetrus for 4 hours, went out to lunch with his buddies to a nice restaurant, and still got to come home at 3:30....

  12. Erik, my jealousy ran so deep I was about to photoshop myself into a picture with Harrison Ford just to say I had one too! Just kidding ... kinda.

  15. I think it would have been better if you put your arm around him or something, but that would have been weird for him, since you really don't know him. Probably the best thing about Erik's job that Cristin didn't mention is that he gets to wear jeans and sneakers to work.
