Current Events

Well, if anybody was concerned, you'll be glad to hear my wiki presentation went fine (and in my mind, you're all very very very concerned). Since I was showing how a wiki worked, I was talking while seated behind a computer which was having its display projected onto a wall. So nobody was looking directly at me and I wasn't standing, so everything was fine. If I were standing and everybody was looking at me, I would have been fidgety and probably would have blacked out. As it worked out though, I did fine. When I projected our branch wiki onto the wall, I was surprised to see my co-worker, Sarah, had added a huge comment to the top of the main page, so everybody viewing the presentation saw, "Yay for Jon showing everyone the cool world of WIKI. Rock on Jon!" in a large bold red font. That kind of broke the ice.

Aside from that, it's all about the upcoming public C0M1C BOOK SWAP -

C0M1C SWAP Flier.

Yesterday, I delivered a stack of fliers to a local comics store to publicize the event -

RLB - "I'm gonna publicize this"!

Aside from that, Sandra & I attended a clandestine party which was made up almost entirely of employees who had been fired from or quit my former workplace. The management there is apparently crazy, and all the people I liked are being canned in favor of kiss-asses.

I've never seen a group of former employees so happy about moving on, it was more like a celebration than anything else. I never saw anything like it before.

Guests of Honor, A&A - glad to be moving on.

What else is going on?

In anticipation of the upcoming C0M1C SWAP, I've been occassionally wearing a Naruto mask at work -

RLB as manga sensation, Naruto.

My co-worker prefers to wear the mask kind of sideways so she can read -

Sideways Naruto.

I hope SOMEBODY shows up at the swap. At least two people, so they can actually swap. If that happens, I will consider the event a success.
