About time

Well, I've actually decided to point my domain name to my blog. I think that it's about time.

Today I came to the realization that if you want to win anything in a contest at my company, your entry had better have something to do with the company. Example: we had a contest for love song lyrics for Valentines Day. Here are the official instructions.

Enter the (Company Name) Love Song Lyrics Contest.

It's easy to enter. Just submit your original love song lyrics to Danielle no later than Friday, Febuary 9 at 4:pm.

Then below, they wrote out some lyrics to a song by Air Supply as an example. So I thought to myself, "Hey, I'd like a prize." So I composed some lyrics. Not my best work, but pretty decent I thought. So they chose 3 winners, and all 3 were lyrics written to the tune of existing songs and all about the company. While they were clever, I thought the contest was more than another "fun" way to poke fun at the company. But that's how it's been with every contest that they've had here since I started working here almost a year ago. So you'd think I'd have learned by now that that's just the way it's going to be and maybe if I really want to win, I'll conform, but probably not.


  1. Hey at least it gave you something to complain about :-)

  2. I want to know what the prize was...

  3. They were actually pretty good prizes like an ipod and $50 gift cards.
