Matt announces he’s leaving the blog team…or is he bleeding? Maybe he’s cleaning. Either way, he’s taken the camera equipment with him and we’re all sad he’s gone.

Here at Zappos, we like to look at ourselves as one big happy family. With Thanksgiving being here our Customer Loyalty Team decided to have one big potluck for the entire floor. They made turkeys, hams, pies and every type of side you can imagine. It was delicious!
All of us here at Zappos want to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving.
Do you hate coworkers with smelly feet? Melissa does, especially if the feet are salty!

Our blogger and best buddy Melissa L. was in an accident riding her bike a few weeks ago, and she has been at home recovering for over a month! Today, my friends, she returned to us, and we are so delighted!
Melissa hails originally from San Francisco, CA and started Zappos in the summer of 2008 as a video blogger. Even after the accident, she still managed to go ahead with her wedding, which was set for a week later. On October 3, Melissa married her best friend Igi in a beautiful ceremony in Temecula with many Zappos people in town.
Melissa, we are so happy to have you back!!!
