To my new online bloggy-type home! Yay! Pardon the mess, as I'm just setting up and moving in right now. Sorry about the smell, too. That's from a burrito I found in my pocket that I bought sometime last week.
That actually really did happen during my time at Ziff Davis, by the way, which I know because I recently found a notebook an old friend of mine kept back in the MacWEEK days called "Classic Jeff Manuevers," and that was one of the listed items. Other highlights include:
August 23, 1993
Accidentally sends instant message meant for me to one of our vice-presidents. The message was: "FUCK YOU."
September 23, 1993
Drops photo slide (that was already a week late) that we needed for a page layout into his coffee cup. Calls vendor and blames US Postal Service.
September 29, 1993
Drops empty bread basket into the soup cauldron at Specialities. Then asks, "Do I get something free for doing that?"
January 5, 1994
When asked to put ketchup on plate for french fries, he places the bottle of ketchup on the plate. He was not trying to be funny.
and so on and so on. I guess it's sort of flattering to have someone keeping a written record of all your screwups. Though maybe I should keep that list away from my new employers at Electronic Arts, or they may start wondering what kind of horrible mistake they made. LOL!
Anyway, so the purging of my office here at Ziff Davis continues apace. The stuff I'm finding in here would, like, literally boggle your mind. Strat-o-Matic baseball games. A Gunsmoke tie. A Black Isle Studios notepad. A 2400 baud modem.
Note to self: Next time you stay at the same job for 17 years, don't wait 17 years to clean it up once in awhile.
Also: Hi! I'll try to post a lot here, and you try to visit, mmmkay? Otherwise it's gonna be kinda lonely around here. K back to packing. Byeeeeeeeeeeee!
