(Pay attention: that whiny, lame, without detail, two-word sentence instead of well thought out, interesting, three-or-more word sentence sets the "tone" for this essay.)
So. I've been in Austin for a week. Most of my time has been spent working long, long hours at my new job. Yes, it's a startup and an internet company which of course means wacky long hours. My week was filled with 12 hour work days, but I was doing interesting stuff and adding nifty new features to deepleap (i can't say what or they'll hurt me! stay tuned! next week! exciting new stuff!) so yeah. I like my job. I like the people I'm working with, I like Austin, I like texas bbq, I still haven't actually unpacked yet.
There was no "hey, let's try and act normal for the new guy" - oh no. The technical staff is definitely a little crazy. Which is good, because sanity is boring, and I'm crazy, and everything is just more entertaining this way. For me obviously, not for you since I haven't been writing anything remotely entertaining about it.
Ooooh, yeah, happy fun fuzzy boring fun stuff. Just what you want to read. No, no you didn't come here to read that I like my new job and I like my coworkers blah blah blah. Nope, you came here because you thought you might get some dirt on that internet rockstar guy I'm living with.
Ummmm, Ben dances like a monkey. A retarded one-legged monkey.
After months and months of bitching at numerous internet retailers, I finally got my nifty Olympus 2020-z digital camera. (Note the lack of a transition or segue - note that this "essay" lacks coherence. Thank you. Please continue reading now.) It's like the greatest thing ever. Yummy digital photoreffic goodness anytime I want it. And anytime YOU want it
I saw a midnight showing of Titan AE and I've now come to realize that purple hair is the greatest thing ever. (Again, note the lack of a transition. Can we say "bad texty text"?) No, to clarify, purple hair on cute girls is the greatest thing ever. So if you're a cute girl with purple please get in touch with me so we can get married. Thank you. Also, you should be a cartoon.
So, to summarize, I am tired, can't write a decent texty text, like new job, have another stupid geeky toy, and have an unnatural obsession with girls with purple hair now.
