A new coworker dates this MODEL

Ok y'all, get this. Today I'm doing a VectorWorks training cd segment for like the 39th time on how to deal with the drawing plane (which i just can't seem to get, apparently), with my earbuds in, listening along to the narrator in the Quicktime movie segment. Through the drone of the Peanuts-class-teacher-cum-my-afterlunch-lullabuy, I overhear my new coworker, Liz, talking about her boyfriend. Well, somehow, I etched "kevinscott.com" into my hard drive, and remembered it when I got home, and just dialed up after dinner. He's a model. Click on the title of this post for a link to his website. He's been on the cover of Men's Health several times. Just don't know what to say on SO many levels. I like Liz alot, I think she must be early 20-something (she graduated in 2003). She has a lot of energy, and is a great graphic designer, and is just starting out in her career. She started one week after me, so we are both newbies and maybe we have bonded a bit cause of that. She has spent two years in the "evil" world (her words) of print advertising, and seems to be relieved and happy to be transitioning to the meaning-intensive world of exhibit graphics. She knows how to really keep things simple, yet rich...and she has some great, easy techniques she uses, just converting eps or bmp files to erasers to "rusticate" images. She's got a nice little bag of tricks that just applies splendidly to several projects in the office, that are all out in the West, in the desert...I really like her already, because she is not afraid to say "I don't know how to do that, show me!" and she is always volunteering tips to me, like how she goes about making those cool eraser templates in Photoshop. I hope everybody I work with is as forthcoming and energetic as Liz. The hours just melt away at work, everyday is like the blink of an eye...all this learning new 3D drawing software is a bear, and I hope I'll have it down well enough, soon enough, to actually be productive with it. Well, soon my new MBpro will be here (next week?), and i'll be able to bash my head in with Vectorworks and FormZ after dinner as well. Can't wait! Sorry for the rambling post. I know i'm all over the place....This just in: Steven may be coming up for an interview in a couple of days! Yippee! They wanted him to come Friday, but he needs to be in ATL to send JingXia off on Saturday on her big adventure to Boston, to visit her schoolteacher friend from the joyous old Cultural Revolution days in the homeland. Maybe Steven and I'll be able to travel back to the ATL together toward the end of next week, for Tricia and Scott's big hitch. Hope you all are having a lovely Wednesday evening. Be sure to say hello (translation::leave a comment!), I miss you all! For the technologically challenged out there (i'm talking to my MOM now), just click on the little "x comments" symbol at the bottom of the post, to the left of the envelope symbol (that's what you use if you want to forward a post to Mary Frances or Ellen or someone) there. :)

Babe-alicious! He looks like trouble though...

You make reply comments sound so simple, but the first time you have to set yourself up, and I just don't see Mama doing all that. You better call her and walk her through it if you ever want to see her comment (And NO, I won't do it).

Comments really are that simple...you just fill in the field, choose anonymous, and then just sign your name...and do the word verification thingie. When i moderate I can blip away the anon and insert a real name, if i so choose. 20 seconds, tops, Mama, promise.
