USA and Work Lameness
First off, Team USA Won the 60th running of the Motocross of Nations. This is the 17th win for the US - now the most of any nation. So who cares about the damn Ryder Cup (golf is not a real sport anyways)- USA rules Supercross/Motocross.
So this week the company decided to implement "Operation Clean Sweep". Working in an IT department that has been around for about 30 years, you know there is a lot of crap so it was decided to have the crap cleaned up. Not a bad idea, let's us get out of work for a few days. But then out came the "team assignments" - this is a contest to see who can clean up the best to win a pizza party (yeah??) and on my desk I find my team name: Team Toy Story. Are they freakin kidding me?? They named all the teams after childrens Disney movies. One more joke that the employees here get that Mgmt does not. At least I'm not on Team Dumbo I guess.
If you missed it, watch "Heavy -The History of Metal" on VH1. It is about 3 hours and actually very cool. My only complaint about the whole thing is the complete passing on metal nowadays. Just brief mentions of Korn, System of a Down and no mention of Tool. I know it's history but those three bands have mad their lasting mark.
Back to "Operation Clean Sweep"!!
