i am designer supreme! fear my power.

UPDATE: rugby match for tomorrow is cancelled. My new plan: SLEEP IN! Aaaah. Have a good weekend.

Gurl and Bubbles went to the Herndon Monument Plebe Recognition Ceremony yesterday and all I got was this lousy digital picture:
yummy delicious
I went to that event a few years back with Seamus. It's something every homo in this area should do at least once to feel complete. Sort of like every freak needing to go see GWAR in concert. I have done both.

Last night I passed out at 8pm, woke up at 7am this morning. Gee, ya think I was worn out from the week? I feel refreshed today though.

Remember the asshole faculty member/center director who arrogantly rejected my newsletter design which adhered to the standard department/school design template? Well, turns out he thinks I'm some kind of unskilled underling, as he asked our receptionist ( my Secret Sister in the office ) the other day if she could, "...get that student worker to help me with the newsletter again."

Now I am deeply flattered that my smooth, ageless skin (tip: stay out of the sun, use moisturizer and sunscreen, and don't drink or smoke) is unmistakable from that of a typical 19 year-old hotties' here on campus, but I would also like to be respected at work as a skilled professional. I AM 34 and I have earned every precious year of its wisdom and experience.

First I guess I need to school this professor that I am indeed an employee of the university, then I need to remind him that I've done design for the Dept. of Commerce home page, entire websites for presidential initiatives, USDA, EPA and my design (albeit shitty) for Washington's National and Dulles Airports which are STILL online after almost 5 years. The proof is on the Internets, and my design was certainly better than your old one, which could have been bested by my high school yearbook team.

"YOU WILL LISTEN TO MY DESIGN RECOMMENDATIONS! MY EYE FOR WHITESPACE, READABILITY AND NAVIGABILITY IS SUPREME. HEED MY LAYOUT, AND FEAR MY PRINT JOB, FOR IT WILL DESTROY YOU IF YOU DON'T! (Putting on my Darth InDesign outfit...)

He will run in terror. I have seen the evil eye Jimbo gives, he is not to be trifled with.

You need to put the beatdown on this man, and when you're done, thank him for the backhanded compliment.

why is it that gay men always know to be especially supportive of support staff. support staff know everything about what is going on and they totally direct the pace and flow of work. I swear my career has depended on a secret sister, or mother, or auntie or whoever helping me under the radar.
