Looks like somebody needs to overhaul the old typewriter.

It's about almost that time to finish a few novella for the Kickstarter.

Good for you Buck!

The most interesting point I'm finding about Lego's advertising for the current Apollo 11 (and other space themed) stuff is that it's branded as "Lego City".  To me, that implies space is... normal.  Like the stop lights and sidewalks in any town.  I think that's a particularly powerful (if subtle) message.  One that nearly brings me to tears, in fact.  Of joy, to be clear...  We ARE living in "the future"...

80% or 90%...Wow Your Company's are amateur. MY company has annual tests on ethics, (75%+ covering legal issues that have never had 1 thing to do with my department, because we aren't sales or customer service) that require a 100% pass rate!

And the annual survey for how well the company does? the first time we had to do one I wrote it as if I was a clerk that worked in another city. I went through the 100+ questions with a fine tooth comb to ensure every multiple choice question was answered with the worst result. Could just mark 1 all the way as they were tricky with their questions where sometimes 1 was the best and 5 was the worst.

And, for the question: What's the one thing your boss could do to make your job easier? I wrote: QUIT

Made me giggle when they had a corporate level review meeting and mentioned this poor haggard clerical worker in the interior and how bad her job was and how they were looking into it! :P

Waste my time, I'll waste yours!
