it's that damn monkey again.

sometimes i hate my job
(when i’m up at 4am, editing in my pjs or on my way to work, editing on the subway),

and other times i think it’s pretty fun,
esp. when they let me make stuff like this:


click to view.

anyway, if you’ve got a few thousand dollars lying around
and are feeling philanthropic and sally struthersish,
bid on a laptop and help the children:



another typical day at work (stuffd animal porn, arranged by dan).


during our afternoon smoke break, melissa and i,
equipped with vi’s canon elph,
took snapshots of all the hopeful, persevering jobseekers standing in line for the eBay job fair.

according to the local news,
over two thousand people showed up.
yeah, the job market in silicon valley is atrocious.

check it out.

recap la la la

things i’ve done in the past two weeks:

i flew to boston to see nat.
then we drove to new york with alex and joe (two of my favorite monkeys).
i’ve always thought that seeing les miserables on broadway
would be a culminating experience in musical theatre..
well, aside from london.

i’ve seen les mis eight or nine times.
how odd..
that i would be most unimpressed by broadway’s production.
fantine couldn’t reach soprano without cracking her ugly voice,
the sound was too low, the microphones had loose wiring somewhere,
and most of all, the cast didn’t have the *unf* to carry out a solid, vehement,
“tomorrow we’ll discover what our god in heaven has in stored,
one more dawn, one more day, ONE DAY MORE!”

“times square, one of the few places where i’m outside but i feel as if though i’m inside.”


alex, such a hottie.


late afternoon, before getting back to work,
melissa, in her flippity floppity sandals, and i
ran through the fierce, fierce rain.

ruberts by the window, while the thunder went, “bbrrrooooom!”


last night, a few of us checked out the opening of whisper,
a new club in san francisco.

jeremy dances to that tequila song.


harry who’s diva house is so geigh, but oh so much fun to dance to.



stifling corporate formality is nonexistent..
the department is composed of humorous, competent personalities
who role play snipers with nerf ball guns,
shake the screaming fluffy monkey,
play daily practical jokes on each other
and get work done.

here at ebay, the environment is ideal..
i just have to watch out for propelling suction bullets
and flying sqooshy balls every so often;
anton likes to use me as his target.
