i took the day off work today.
woo hoo. i know i keep bitching about how much i hate my job, you would think i should just put up or shut up but part of the problem is i’ve burned, bombed (shock and awe type bombing) and destroyed quite a few bridges in my time in the advertising industry here. people are a little afraid to hire me.
it’s not that i don’t have the talent, it’s the ‘prima donna attitude’ i’m not a prima donna, perfectionist with a low tolerance level for shit – yes, prima donna – no. i do good work, i work hard, but advertising here is more about who you know and who you (insert male bonding ritual here) on the weekend, than anything to do with real talent. with very few exceptions, nothing in the print media stands out anymore, no one wants to take a chance on a fresh look.
that said, as crappy as the pay and personalities at the office, i think i did some of damn good work yesterday on this presentation, it’s good to be inspired.
in other news i have to thank my friends for continuing to supply me with some of the strangest and most entertaining things online.
here is but one example:
things my girlfriend and i have argued about
quite funny, british humour.
i’m off to save the world, or at least get breakfast, prepare for a meeting and go fix a mac and ponder how to stop this damn coughing..
