I’ve been doing alot of repetitive copying and pasting coding type shit today, and my wrists are pleading with me to stretch them out of their claw-like form. So I’m going write this new blog entry.
Our project managers at work have been away for the past two days and it’s been absolute bliss without them! Or about as blissful as work can get I think. It means that I can work uninterrupted and email the client directly with any questions, image requests, etc I need, instead of having to explain it to a project manager, making sure they understand it before they email another project manager who probably has to communicate this to someone else… and you get the idea.
Actually the above is only part of the reason. The particular project manager I’ve been attempting to work with on a large-ish rollercoaster ride of a project, (see the right blue that isn’t orange), is well… fucking annoying to work with. She’s moody and doesn’t communicate important info such as deadlines, and new parts/phases being added to me, the designer and html coder.
‘Nough said about her I think. I’m sure there people out there who have had to, or do deal with these types of managers. The only thing these people can
manage is pissing off colleagues, causing stress and other unproductive behaviour.
Any how two days working in a quiet and relaxed environment has influenced the type of music I decided to iPod into of late. On high rotation over these past two days have been Bjork‘s gorgeously ecclectic blend of strings and ambient electronicy like sounds, Dirty Three‘s beautifully melancholic instrumental string sagas (also good for yoga), Something for Kate’s Beautiful Sharks album, and the delightfully poppy type 80s rock of The Cure (Standing on a Beach — the singles).
Enjoy the weekend, because Monday the project managers are back.
