Turns out I hadn't posted to Google+ since December. Why? I blame work. And facebook. Despite everyone hating Facebook, none of us seem to be moving over here with any speed of consistency.

Oh magical internet, do me a favor and like this facebook course page for my friend so he can do what he needs to do with it...he needs 25 likes. And apparently I only know 9 people who would help me bury a body.

So, this is work related, but it's also awesome. You know you like movies with cars and violence. Now all we need is cotton candy and life would be perfect. I give you, the red band trailer to Drive: Drive - Red Band Trailer

I feel there are some authors who probably feel the same way about their complaints...

You know you love the muppets. You know that your inner child squeals with delight every time it sees those froggy feet. And apparently, these musicians felt the same. I give you...The Green Album.

lol -- don't worry, Araz, I don't have an apple shaped lobotomy scar - just the strange shaped "birthmark" on my dome that I've had since my robotic overlord let me wander free.

Story
Introduction

For me, Geek is a term of endearment. Where some find their joy in computer programs and technology, I find joy in words (and also computer programs and technology, but I'm getting ahead of myself). It's for that reason, that I am applying for your Communications Manager, Editorial position. The truth is, effective communication is my super power. I'm the Grammar Avenger, the Queen of Correctness, the Translator of Technology. And I want to work for a company where I can change the world with words and do good with grammar. It certainly doesn't hurt when I get to play with design software.
