Tomorrow I sail. For I am Khaleesi of Customer Experience, Bluetoothed, Champion of Usability and The Bug-free.

Once in the land they call Corporatica, I shall scale that labyrinth of low-walled cubes, joust the posturing leagues of middle management and endure the spiritual famine they call the lunch meeting, I shall not fear. Yea, though the futile machinations of ambition do cause the moneyhands to wrench the profit from the margin, I shall slay Monday. And Tuesday. Wednesday. Thursday. And on that Friday I will claim my prize and dwell in the land of the positive bank balance (for at least a few days).

Note: This week’s photo was especially inspiriting and I found myself writing not one, but four pieces. And of course I picked the one that had the least literal interpretation and might cause you to wonder about my grip on reality. Ah well, you should see the sort of things I write in my self evaluations  and the emails I send to senior management.
