Went kind of smooth after a while.

I need to cleanse the taste of rant out of my mouth. This seems to be doing the trick:

You had to give them all a sign, didnt you?

A personal post, if you will.

I think anyone who knows me in the flesh & blood world knows that I am not very happy with my current employment situation. They probably know I am looking for work elsewhere.

Thing is, whilst my work day is a total slog and I cannot stand going into the office anymore, it is really only the fault of a single client and my boss’ inability to deal with them properly. They make demands, we cower and comply and when we ask for money, they decline. They are also quite stupid and some of their expectations seem to be torn out of a childhood copy of a book written by two brothers with the surname of Grimm.

Anyway, today’s little rant is over a security report that was commissioned and carried out a couple of weeks ago. The report apparently came back with a couple of big ticket items that need to be rectified quickly. So the client has asked us to provide a schedule and project plan to do that.

I asked if we could see the report, you know, so we could work out exactly what the issues were.

They came back and said we could see the report after they get the project plan.

Seriously? I quit.

And I’ve been getting away with it, all my life.

OMG! This magazine is the shizz. Seriously, dudes. Awesome! LOL! Classics lecturer (M, 48). Possibly out of his depth with today’s youth. KTHX! Box no. 2680.

I like good design. Do you like good design? If so, check out Olly Moss. He has a bunch of Threadless shirts to his name and he is (very possibly) a good designer.

Check out his re-imagining of classic film posters:

There is no one else here...

And in-between, sips of Coke.

This is the year that I simplify and reduce the number of active obsessions. Of my (many) obsessions one regards shoes and another concerns jeans. If I could combine the two (and I think in a perfect world I would be able to) I would.

But I don’t live in a perfect world. Thing is though, Sebastian Errazuriz does. See:

Do we care a lot? Or any?

I guess I always thought he was dead or something (via Facebook):

Chuck Mosley is currently recording a new album at Ante Up Audio recording studios in Cleveland, Ohio. Multi-platinum producer/engineer Michael Seifert (Tori Amos, Regina Spektor, Dave Matthews, Bone Thugs ‘n Harmony) is currently working on the new release with Chuck. The album is sure to please fans new and old, with a mix of hard rock and acoustic numbers. Visit the Chuck Mosley website for more details!

That certain feeling, carved by another’s hand.

Thought Bubbles in Brooklyn at Urban Prankster. Another one of those things that I wish I had thought of (and that I hope I can pass off as my own idea when I start putting them up around town).
