[Current Mood |annoyedannoyed]

  • Received NJ SAVER rebate (yay)
  • dinner. Filets of Beef tonight, Yellow Chili with Chicken, Veal Sausage, and fresh Vegetables last night.
  • One habañero pepper is more than sufficient for four servings.
  • strangely, last night's meal was brainwashingly spicy, and yet no aftereffects.
  • furthermore, IBS was rather mild and didn't bother me all day.
  • One can each of Batchelor's Marrowfat Peas and Curried Beans is ideal beanage for Chili.
  • Computer geeks tend to make poor project managers.
  • Too tired to write real stuff.
  • Need to get detailed to-do list of tasks for Project Polaris at work.
  • Need new bed mattress.
  • Want Dairy Queen vanilla cone with cherry shell dip.
  • Reform Jewish coworker whining about Conservative Girlfriend's service being "too long". Funny, I like four hours of Hebrew.
  • Essay on difference between censorship and personal choice, difference between investigation and oppression, omitted for brevity.

Ohh sounds interesting. Are you going to melt the polar Ice-caps with a 'laser'?? Can you talk about it?

the real explanation

"Let's see how fast we can sink the company and lose all our jobs by creating projects with stupid names to invent products no-one wants..."

Re: the real explanation

Ahhh, that happened at my last place before I was made redundant :)~

They spent 6 months developing a project which we all realized nobody wanted. Then they sacked the 3 developers working on these projects. Bastards. They should have just sacked the idiots who decided to develop the product without even the most basic of market research!

the sad thing

They did do market research: however, they left the project led by a team of two: a marketing director that believes
lime green and eggplant
are good contrasting colors (and the answer to all ills) and a programmer type that has a hard time vocalizing in anything except mathematics metaphors. How can we lose?
