More work stuff

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Lately I have been very busy at work which leaves me not a lot of time for other stuff. That’s ok though, it’s just temporary. And with all this busy-ness there will be lots to show for it.

In related news, that ridiculously large I heart NY cup that I was making fun of in my entry last week has since become my goto cup at work. I will not drink from any other receptacle. Just try and make me. Pablo got an awesome milk steamer for the office and I brought in some white hot chocolate powder. This awesomeness + the espresso maker = mocha in a giant mug every morning. I’m cutting my Starbucks intake to 1 per week on Fridays as a reward for all my hard work and to get the Free Track of the Week card for iTunes. Last week it was Bedouin (not the nomadic desert tribe, the Soundclash)! OK, ok. I’m a corporate whore for one day a week. Sorry! Sue me! The rest of the time I make up for it by helping to make advertisements, mostly for the internet. Hrm.

Also, I was helping Nick do some QA (that is “testing for Quality Assurance” for those who don’t know what that is because they’ve have never had to) for a Facebook application one evening and we needed an image separated from a gradient background to put over a black background in the app, stat! No designers as far as the eye can see. So I popped it into photoshop, did a little magic eraser and voila! It’s in the app! I am excited to receive creative recognition for my contribution once we release this puppy. I’m glad you now know you can for sure call on me for your super basic graphic design needs that do not call for talent in graphic design. It’s the small victories that keep me going and this is for sure one of them.
