Back Again

You might of thought I was finished but alas, I guess not.

Yeah, I've spent some time away. Kind of a hiatus I guess.

Got a call from a friend who said: "Hey, where's the blogs? I've been counting on them! I read every one. Sometimes I print them out and read them to my friends." She needs to get a life.

I mean spending time reading a blog about nothing. That's as bad as watching a show about nothing. Wait a minute. That's how Seinfeld made HIS millions. Maybe there's cash in my future.

No really. I was just taking some time off. I mean, let's face it, even Michelangelo had to stop sculpting long enough to find more marble. (Not that I'm related or anything.) It just makes sense that after 365 days of blogging I'd need to go find more raw material.

It's not that nothing has been happening or anything. Lots of craziness at work. Like, the Enterprise is talking about off-shoring lots of work, people are panicking, some are saying: "What about me? I've been here for 12 years." Yeah, well, that's the way it goes these days. Trying to stay ahead of the pack so that you can stay employed is the greatest skill you need. Or in the spirit of Who Moved My Cheese?, it's time to lace up those sneakers.

Truth is, according to the book, The World Is Flat if you don't work in a service job, you'd better get one because all the jobs that can be digitized will be off-shored within five years. (That's kind of a general quote or the gist of what he said anyway.)

Me? Oh I'll just keep on drawing pictures at work. Lots of boxes and lines that represent processes and interfaces. It's a great life. (Just can't believe what they pay me for this kind of stuff.)

I've also been sketching some. I've been following Danny Gregory's site. I also bought his book, Everyday Matters. He's big on getting people to sketch, regardless of your talent. If you want motivation, read his The Creative License.

Don't waste your time on a woman, who isn't willing to waste their time on you.
