Day 3: We Will Break Bread Together.
When the going gets tough, buy snacks. Lots of snacks. Snacks that range from really unhealthy to out-of-control, clog my arteries unhealthy. When they start to run low- buy pizza. Lots of pizza. Make sure that the butter garlic sauce is included and if you find a way to deep-fry it, bonus points. Finally, if you still need more, get the intern (Scott Ackerman- Technologist at CP&B) to go get you a “suicide” Slurpee from 7-11. It’ll give him a nice break from making copies.
I forgot to report yesterday that members of the data team went rogue on our little party. Heather “I wear Calvin” Klein, Claiborne “these boots are made for walkin’” Buckingham, and Bryan “Harley4Lyfe” Callison decided to bail on their data entry counterparts and start their own “branding” team. I’ve already realized some bad blood between these guys and the social media team (yours truly and Sybil “says” Mulokwa). No one really knows what this “branding” unit is doing. Going off and meeting with clients? Planning events at the VMFA? Writing adjectives and drawing lines on an oversized piece of paper and then hanging it on our wall reserved for important things? I don’t trust them.
Regardless, I was impressed by Klein. She ate no less than eight of the twelve donuts that we had at the start of the day. While this stat is unconfirmed, I will take it to the grave. Also of note, Schuyler “The Circumstance?” Hunt drank more AMP energy drinks in one day than any human should drink over the course of an entire lifetime. His heart could have very well exploded by the time that this post goes up.
“El Jefe” Campabadal also managed to link Panelizr’s frontend interface to a backend database, all while surfing in Virginia Beach. Some people will do anything for their green card.
Things are starting to look better for Panelizr as the data entry team gets closer to their goal of entering infinity data. Once the “branding” team takes down their oversized piece of paper, we will be another step closer.
