Yet Again We Won!

Yay, perhaps David is our lucky charm, he’s been at the last couple of games and we’ve won them. This time 49-39. Not to be a sore winner but the other team sucked a bit, the were great players but when you have a mother, holding a baby on the side line screaming “Foul them, foul them” and cheers when they do kinda says the team is a little rotten at the core.

But hey we won and that’s all that matters :D

I think that makes us third on the ladder (from the other end). *grins*


Work Experience Girl

This week we have a nice girl here doing work experience… in a place like this work experience means shuffling papers (with papercuts as a bonus), filing crap that should have been filed years ago and cleaning out storage sheds… not really all that much to do with Marketing or having fun which is what it should be.

Work Experience Girl (WEG) spent the afternoon in the Edit Suite with me and Simon. With-in a half an hour she announced that Simon was just a small boy in a big boy’s body. While on the surface this may appear an accurate description of young Simon, sitting with him day after day you learn he is something so much more.

WEG also taught us about MySpace and what it means to kids of today. I have avoided MySpace like the plague… it’s a ugly, garish, mishmash of same but different design with everyone’s comments full of “Please add me” and corresponding “Thanks for the add”. Like, what is that about?

Apparently it means something to these kids, and while WEG says she’d never ever meet anyone from MySpace it seems just from the brief view we had others probably would and have… don’t they know how dangerous that is?
Scary little world these teenagers live in these day, it’s good to know there’s at least one younger girl out there with a sensible head on her shoulders.

Oh and Simon also attempted to teach binary, I’m not quite sure she got it completely. :P
