The announcement has gone up at Scrappy Giraffe Kits and I have been selected as one of the new Designers. I am very very happy to be there. Kat and the girls are awesome. Congrats to everyone else who made the team as well. I can't wait to get started working with everyone there, including the very lovely Cathy, Erica and my new good friend Jess. The kits are excellent. This DT selection has been the best process I have seen so far. Kat has some very cool ideas.
The other exciting news is that Cathy sent me a package of Mars bars all the way from Canada where they sell them, as opposed to here in the states. Anyone from home will understand how comforting it was to see that black packet. Even Michael enjoyed his litle nibble.
Here's a little story for everyone at home.
I went to get a burger for lunch today. I couldn't quite find what I wanted on the menu board so I asked for a cheeseburger, and asked for a friend egg to be added, as you do in Australia. The guy was most confused, so I repeated it to be answered with "An egg, are you sure?" I really didn;t realise how much of an Australian thing that was. Good thing I didn;t ask for beetroot. I might have gotten kicked out. Meanwhile, he proceeded to take out a pre-packed burger from a plastic packet. You know the kind you get at home in the servos that you have to heat up yourself. He pulled it apart and cooked up the "meat" and the bun, and cooked me up an egg. By the way, that's all there was, no lettuce and tomato even. Very very strange.
So the moral of the story, go to the shop right now. Order a burger with the lot with out repecusion and enjoy every little bit of it. Maybe you could think of me while you are doing it.
