cripes. my left ear is about to fall off... i have been on the phone for almost 2 hours straight... yap yap yap yap...

now i have to whisk though the apartment as the Cleaning Fairy... not too bad right now - mainly vacuum and contend with a few (about 5) dirty dishes... perhaps a swipe of the dustrag is necessary as well...

why, melanie, we're having a visitor to Tara tomorrow night...

david bloom. scud stud. age 39.

1853948.jpg i just woke up. i know that i have been making light of some war stuff - just because i didn't exactly want this to become a dismal place to come to- and the Scud Stud watch that i had been goofing around with... well, one of the first reporters that i deemed Scud Stud worthy has died.

i have the teevee on when i sleep and i woke up to hear rob morrison saying that "david was a friend" and then "he will be missed"

wednesday update

whew. busy day. presentation in the city tomorrow morning... was getting all that ready and such... spoke to the boy and we were supposed to go out tomorrow night... plans changed and i have been upgraded to weekend date status (date switched to friday).

bought claritin and my life is a dream now....

did a sugar scrub facial tonight (smoooooth), then took a hot bath and relaxed a bit while i focused on what i will present and now i am ready to pass out...

hope all y'all are having a great evening!

April 10, 2003

insider trading

i just released 100 shares of gigglechick.com - they are at $0.65 and rising, so i suggest you scarf them up quick!!

ah... they want them all!

the presentation in the city went WONDERFULLY... instead of choosing one campaign to go with, they chose THREE of the ideas we presented and are want to gear them to 3 different demographics!!!!

eh.... the only drawback is i have to re-learn flash and create 7 flash files and emails and a bunch of doohickeys by april 28th...

some long days at work are ahead of me (except tonight... i am heading to tanning so i am not pasty irish chick for my date tomorrow :)

only if....

by the way - the place i had to go to present was in the FoxNews building and i was tempted to find a camera to jump in front of while flailing my arms and yelling "Greg Kelly is my Scud Stud!"

effed company...

well... i finally did it. after 3 years since picking my first effed company... (which was Xceed) (at one point i was #67 in the top 100 on the site - then i was laid off from digitas (a week before i was laid off, i was #85)and was sort of "out of the loop" with the business thang for 9 months.

so i haven't been picking any companies in a long while - just letting the old miserable one's ride and run themselves into the ground.

so, my first 100,000 made on FC.... yep. silly, but i'm proud.

have i mentioned how much i love spring!? it's supposed to be 80 degrees out today!!! EIGHTY!!!

there was talk of possibly going to the driving range during lunch, but there's so much to do here at the office today that that pipe dream seems to be fading.

tomorrow's supposed to be 80-something as well... and then it all goes to hell in a handbasket on thursday...

not sure if i am working on friday or not yet - i put in for it, but... have 9 flash files to concept and design (having johnny storm animate these puppies, though - he's great. fast. and a kick-ass flash guru. go to his site. here's the rockstar version of his site.)

twisted all up in 'dat

so next tuesday night i am going with heather from work and instead of weight watchers, i am going to take a yoga class with her at yoga bums ($15 to just drop in on a session)

yo. no witty headline.

these illustrations are sucking the lifeforce out of me (i mean how "interesting" can you make something about accountants? no offense to all y'all accountants out there)

Continue reading "yo. no witty headline." »

what's the what.

very glare-filled photo of the illustration for a background in one of these flash movies. arrrrgh.

i am sorta liking this one, there's this "red carpet/awards" show theme with this campaign and i am fleshing this stuff out and beating myself up.

go toward the light, erin

hmmmm... i think i see light at the end of this tunnel... i cranked out the last couple of illustrations/animations... sent them to FlashBoy to tweak and make flasheriffic.

hostile takeover

so i performed a leveraged buy out of shares of gigglechick.com on blogshares - those who had shares received a payout of $3.61 ea. per share (3 x $ 1.20 - the current price)

heh. sorry - but hey - the shares now are worth $0.98 - a bargain! since the stock will go up again... there's 1000 shares available at the moment...


likkered up on a bucket of hot chocolate and low-fat popcorn. am stuck here at work till i finish the concepts for the damned emails for flash - killing me - whining. can't talk in complete sentences.

i hate having designer's block. i just can't picture this version of the campaign - and i am at a standstill - trying to force the issue. arrrgh. i just don't like this concept. the "conservative" version.


this is erin being a design brat. over and out

help kat...

help kat.... from my single mom life... she's a good egg and not looking for new boobies, not looking to pay off $80K in credit card debt, not looking to scam anyone...

just pretty much, she has scoliosis. she needs surgery, needs to take care of her kids and needs our help.

go. now. give a dollar... give more... give her your support

the title is "effing"

i. just. effing. blue. effing. screened.

effing. p. effing. c.

lost. every. effing. thing. i've. been. working. on. to-effing-day.

why? because i effing tried helping the somerone here do something with our intranet and his effing file was corrupted and so i had problems, crashed about 6 times after helping, was on the phone with my IT guy about the intranet and then - just when i got back to doing my OWN effing work - i blue. effing. screened.

i am going to be here most likely past midnight - oh and i was given a project to redesign the global intranet today. due date: this thursday morning.

home. night

just walked in the door (would have been home 20 min. ago but had to park 3 blocks away... arrghh)

tired. my friend steve - from high school - sent me a url to a non-profit he's starting... go check it out hackersforhumanity.org

i am falling onto the flannel sheets in T-minus 4 seconds...

nice. early. *yawn*



love it.

now i am going into work early. *sigh*

rugrats at work eve

tomorrow is take your kids to work day here... while i don't have a rugrat of my own, i will be "humouring" about 25 of them between the 2:45pm and 3:45pm hour...

being "artsy-fartsy" chick, i have been elected to draw what the kids want to be when they grow up - then we're photocopying the illustrations (black & white) and handing them a booklet for them colour...

i dig illustrating for kids. this will be fun (just that i will probably be frazzled and stuff by the time i leave to go out tomorrow night - kids like to pull my hair.)
