Day 1: On the Job

I made it through eight hours of work today, the first real work day in five weeks. It wasn’t super hard, but it was a fresh reminder of suckling a paycheck at the corporate teat. I’ve worked for maverick, startup-style companies for the last nine years and CenturyTel is definitely not a startup. They are well organized and efficient. They have the infrastructure to back up their sales force.

It’s only been one day, but things look good.


Mark on WordPress: “My wife Sarah and I were in Wal-Mart last night, when we saw someone walking around with a shirt that said ‘Girl’s go’in wild.’ We had a good chuckle over the atrocious and arbitrary punctuation. Then I thought ‘hey, this might make for a good blog.’

4 hours later, Wordsplosion was online. It’s pretty amazing that you can go from idea to execution in a matter of hours using WordPress. Wordsplosion showcases ‘the best of the worst of the wide world of words.’ It contains (and will continue to contain) all manner of grammatical errors, punctuation gaffes, misspellings, horrible typography, etc. It’s LOL cats for smart people.”
