A post NOT about the US election!

Yeah, a rarity over the last few days huh?

Well I thought I'd post something positive and happy, you know.. because I'm that kind of guy.

As I write this... in 42 days...

I'll be in San Francisco!


Yep! I'm going to be spending Christmas and New Year in the city by the bay, and to be fair.. Oakland is more correct, as thats where beachglass83Miriam lives and I will, of cource, be staying with her.

*glee*

Also.. welcome to people who I've not noticed before! Such as quipper, I've no idea who you are, but welcome! I have a general rule of not adding people back unless they comment or show some random sign of interest, but welcome!

As a side note, it's interesting to work for a company where:
  • The marketing guy knows nothing about writing copy.

  • The project manager knows nothing about writing and testing software.

  • The designer knows nothing about web design, typography, or accessability.

  • The person who is my manager has nothing to do with my actual job in any way.
Mind you.. I am technically working for the council.. so I shouldn't be too surprised. Don't get me wrong, I like my job.. but there are some real frustrations in there. I am, however, working to change and reform them and not giving up and just riding out with the status quo.

Guess what? Its changing, albeit slowly, but it is changing.

A lesson for all of us perhaps.
