Over a Year

Joy mentioned in her blog that she'd been blogging since 2003 and the time has just FLOWN by. I looked and this month will be a year! I can't believe it!
I just wanted to say that I have REALLY enjoyed being able to peek into the lives of really interesting, whitty, intelligent and talented people from all over the place (California, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginia to name a few!).

You guys always give me something great to read and respond to during the day and I love it! I love finding down-to-earth like-minded people!

You blogger folks are great!! I seriously hope that one day I will be able to hang with you guys in real time! And I'm already looking forward to the HOWie conference in Chicago this June when I can hang with Dev & Mel!


Skateboards & Focus Groups

Being on a college campus can be really cool. Last week we did a photo shoot in Fiber Engineering, and we used some of the student projects as props. One of the first projects they do is to make a skateboard from scratch! I asked the guy when do I get to make one? And he said this summer he could set it up so that me and the marketing director can make a skateboard. I am SO excited! I'm looking forward to it and I am also looking forward to designing the graphics that go on it.

I guess the coolest thing about it will be that I can say "I made that - the WHOLE thing!". It looks like a very interesting, easy to do project.

Today I am going to Columbus, GA. for a "focus group" with some teens who are looking at some of my design. Of course, they won't know I'm the designer, but we are looking for more feedback.

One thing that DOES piss me off though, is that they don't understand the concept of wide-angle and fish-eye lenses. They say things like "Why is the room all round and curvey???" ... Dumbasses. They "don't like it" when the room is curvey. It looks funny.

Geez! Dumb, backward redneck idiot kids!

Work=hell

Oh my GOD. Can things BE any busier around here? It literally looks like our office exploded or something. I've been so busy at work that sometimes I'll go for hours having to pee and just CAN'T because someone is always looking for me or I'm in a meeting or I have to go to a photo shoot or something. It is crazy.

I have a HUUUUGE project that I'm in the middle of with deadlines EVERYwehre. 2 small projects. Something I have to design for my mom & dad's business. Then the boss dropped a bomb on us because he's got a meeting with the Pres. Wednesday and needs a HUUUGE display and boards showing what our department does. We need more photography, but won't be able to schedule anything for like 2 weeks because the photographers are taking vacation. 1 of the 3 designers here is out and out office manager too.

THEN....oh yes... THEN they come in to PAINT OUR OFFICES.
There are men in white jumpsuits all over the place and wet walls too. I have to keep my window open to air out the fumes, BUT, there is like a 40 degree breeze blowing in the window.

It was already a mad house before the paint and now it is REALLY a madhouse.

heeeellllp meeeee...

I'll be seeing my office this weekend for sure.

I hate mornings!

Ya know, I had some stuff written here, but it was SOOOOO totally pointless that I erased it all-together. So, i will leave this comment here just so you all know I have no abandoned my blog. I am so freakin' tired I don't know how I'm going to make it through my day..................blah
