WHAT: Random | WHEN: June 23, 2008
|I love days like today. Earlier this morning a big black box with an Apple logo and my name on it was delivered by the nice folks at FedEx. It's better than my birthday because - unlike the stuff my grandma used to get me - I know I'm gonna like what's inside the box. [Sorry, grandma, I didn't mean it... I just needed a good metaphor to pull off that marginally funny line. I loved the stiff, dark blue, shiny off-brand jeans wrapped in an Eggo waffle box you gave me when I was 8.]
Um, where was I? Oh.. right. Meet my newest employee. Let's call her Madeline, and let's make it "Maddy" for short. With her stunning resume & qualifications (she's got 2 3.2GHz quad core processors, a 320GB hard drive, 2 additional internal 1TB hard drives and 10GB of RAM), she's going to take over all the editing duties from Mac Daddy. Good ol' MD - he's been a star performer, but let's face it... being 3.5 years old for someone in his position in this industry... he just can't keep pace anymore. No worries, we're not kicking him to the curb just yet... we're just "reassigning" him. His new job responsibilities haven't been nailed down yet, but he's likely to take on some server duties, maybe run slide shows for clients when they come over, possibly morph into a jukebox/media center... who knows. At the very least, he'll be the world's most expensive - but best looking - paper weight. Thanks for your hard work, Mac Daddy. We won't forget you.
Maddy did a little modeling for me right outta the box. She's a beauty.
