18 Jul 07Client Development Night.

Well, screw this.

Moltz is out there driving through the desert with a talking dog and a mescaline-induced vision of one of the seminal Mac pundits of the previous decade and I’m sitting here on my ass scrolling through emails from appld00d238@hotmail.com and watching my Lancelot Link DVD.

He left Thor in charge but here’s the thing about the great Thor Samson. He’s smart, powerful, well connected and good looking in a “I don’t roll that way but if I did…” kind of way. But he’s not exactly what you’d call “focused”. One minute he’s talking about how we’re going to redesign the site and make it all Web 2.0 with a state-of-the-art content management system and lasers and shit and the next he’s rolling in a pile of twenties with four Swedish flight attendants smeared in butter.

And he’s not even an employee! He’s a contributing columnist! Ugluk even has seniority!

Not that he wants to get into management. I think he’s more interested in the Shaman position we have open. The hours are better. And he’s already got the cave bear head.

But anyway, like I said, screw this.

I’m taking a mess of ones out of petty cash and I’m doing some client development tonight. Me and Kafasis and Shipley and Thomason and that other dude are going to some strip joints.

So if you rumor monkeys want to get your fix, maybe you can get your jollies on this, which reliable sources say is… from the future.

Really, they said that.

And these were the guys who totally predicted iPod Socks. Seriously. They nailed it.

    Grieving affects people in strange ways, Chet. Can I grieve too?

  7. OMGHAX says:

    Unfocused? What a guy!

  8. Streetrabbit says:

    Chet you’re a persuasive salesman. Clicked ALL the links, even bought a couple of tees which I’m guessing puts you two ahead of Moltz’s zero.

    And according to debtinator my home loan will be paid off tomorrow. Sweet. Nothing to do except drinking and gambling from here on in.

  9. UhhhDude says:

    MultiTouch me in the morning, then just walk away.

    And leave some of that mescaline on the dresser.

    Man, I loved those secret chimp shenannigans…


  11. Ace Deuce says:

    My wife is multitouch, and when I use “the pinch” on her, I can shrink her down and put her in my pocket.

    She hates that.

  12. Huh? says:

    Chet, Chet, Chet….

    I am rather unimpressed.
    While I did like the links you provided, there were no ponies.
    There weren’t even any iPWNies.


    My Pants™ and I will be back tomorrow anyway. Not like I have anything better to do…

    My wife is multitouch, too, but she discovered my cheek were multislap.

    Mescaline can be eaten in salad, too. Put some sugar cane in the vinegar to soften the bitter.

  14. nonlinearG says:

    What a visual. Were the twenties kroner? Dollars? Euros? Their Age? Waists? Lingonberries(sp)?

    I gotta know.

  15. UhhhDude, etc. etc. margins.

  16. blank says:

    If I had options such as “rolling in a pile of twenties with four Swedish flight attendants smeared in butter”, I know where my focus would be. Web 2.0 geekery wouldn’t stand a chance.

  17. Huh? says:

    Thor is such a poser…. If he was REALLY all that, he’d be rolling in a pile of C-notes.

    Twentys… pfft.

    It’s probably margerine too. Couldn’t even spring for real butter.

    Where can I get a Lancelot Link DVD?
