Playstation 3 and Me
As you can see, I've had it up to here with this Playstation 3 business (for your reference, I am gesturing to an area far above my head). I may look like I am having a blast in the picture, but the reality of the situation is that I am cold, scared and using laughter as a way to channel my rage.
For all you gaming people out there...let me tell you, it sucks. Now I have signed confindentiality agreements with the company so I can't give away any secrets. But I can tell you it sucks. To be fair, it sucks because the versions we have to work with are huge, like the size of a TV and the game is so crap because its in the midst of being done. I've seen the commercial version and it is pretty sleek and sexy looking, much like Xbox 3. But this testing stuff? Sheesh.
Anyhoo, so not looking forward to this sports day crap I have to do today. I'm wearing high heeled boots so I'm going to pretty useless when it comes to anything sports related. I have a feeling I'm going to tear the shit out of the soccer field.
Do other companies make you do this? Anyone had any "team-building" crap? I've heard of team building events and how they are beneficial to certain companies...at my old job, we just got drunk at work. And that just made us hate each other more. I just don't see how stuffing marshmellows into your mouth and saying "Chubbybunny" makes people bond. But we shall see. Maybe the experience is so traumatic it will bring us all together. Maybe one of us will choke on it. Maybe that person will be me.
Oh. And the name of my team is "Pierre and the Hell's Yes Posse." Odd, since no one on our team is called Pierre.
The overheard conversation of gamers:
"Satan doesn't actually do anything...he just hates you."
"He hates me?"
"Yeah, Satan wants you to hate him."
"Well, how does he expect anyone to be on his side if we hate him."
"No one said Evil was smart."
"Lex Luthor is smart."
