Yellow Says Hello

"Don't worry, Kameron, in the next edition of Webster's, wussify will be a word."

"Is that right?"

"Better yet, you can have someone say it in one of your books. Hey, you can have my character say the word, `wussify,' and then you'll have made up a new word, and you can attribute it to my character. Ha ha."

It's great being back in Chicago.

I Am Eating An Orange

.. it is quite tasty.

I have uploaded something like 300 .jpgs onto the client's server.

Only 900 to go.

It's one of those days.

Another Reason Not to Get a Cell Phone

According to a new global survey, fourteen percent of cell phone users have interrupted screwing to answer their cell phones. Just like Paris Hilton. From Consumer report on a subscription-only Ad Age article:

The highest incidence of cellular interruptus was found in Germany and Spain, where 22 percent of users interrupted sex to answer their cell phones; the lowest was in Italy, where only 7 percent reported doing so. In the U.S., the figure was 15 percent, the magazine said, citing a study conducted by BBDO Worldwide and Proximity Worldwide.

Snapshots From My Worklife

Blaine came in this morning and asked me how to print out his contact list from Outlook. I had no idea, but looked it up on Outlook Help and walked him through it.

Yellow came in a while later:

"Kameron, you're a writer. You know all about this spelling stuff. How do you spell wussify?"

"Huh? Like, somebody who's a wuss?"

"Yea, yea. They're a wuss, and by doing something crappy, you're wussified."

"Wussify isn't a real word, Yellow."

"Yea, yea, but if it was, how would you spell it?

"It's not... oh, nevermind. W-U-S-S-I-F-Y."

"Oh, great thanks. See, I knew you'd know how to spell it."

::Yellow bumbles off::

I call after him, "Wussify is NOT A REAL WORD!"

"It's OK. All the guys'll know what I'm talking about!"

This is what I do for a living.
