Thanksgiving in April: Peter, Peter, Phil, and Alex
It's easy for interns at Microsoft (and I assume elsewhere) to feel like this separate little group. They're only there for a few months, so they don't really ever fully integrate with the teams that they work with, and they're obviously outsiders, so it's easy for the full-time employees to treat them differently. So special thanks to Alex, Phil, and Peter on the FrontPage team for not making me feel like an outsider when I interned there. And special thanks to a different Peter from the Thursday Evening Board Gamers for getting me into into the inner circle clique of the cool old people there, being my first non-coworker friend at Microsoft, and not treating me like "just another college kid."
