TGIF!!!! (to about the 20th power)

It is Friday. It has been a good week. I have a really interesting prodject intentionally misspelled at work going on right now, not to mention that I am still doing residual stuff on the last prodject. I am geeked about designing and coding screens and thinking about how I will write my next spec. But it is Friday and I have a few things to percolate in my head for the weekend. And that’s how design work is. You throw something up there and let people dash it to bits. And you re-work it with the help of your team and then you do it again, lather, rinse, repeat. When I first got my current job, I was terrified about showing my screens to others, even the friendly people on my team. Not so much any more. I think my current job is a good fit for me (-: I am still glad it’s Friday.

I have learned to control my iPhone by voice! By accident. Yes, really. You gurus (you know who you are) are gonna think I am nuts. The first time I ran into voice control was last week, when I hit that round button on the bottom for too long. I was at work and I quit the whole thing really fast. What were those things floating by? Then I was hanging out with MMCB and we were talking about the new Michigan law against texting while driving (which I agree with to a point) and I started up iPhone voice control and I said something that started with “I” (of course) to MMCB and my phone heard that. And suggested that I wanted to call my long-suffering cat-herding boss. Isaac. Kee-reist!! Fortunately, the call needed me to hit a button before it could go thru. Tonight, I managed to call The Commander via voice control. Very cool. Maybe I will try the GG next.

Does anyone know what I was doing 23 years ago?

    You were probably in labor (and telling GG how much you hated him at that moment). Happy Birthday to Mouse tomorrow!!!

    Hmm. I wasn’t aware of the voice control either. I just tried it, saying “Call David” (my brother) and it started playing MUSIC!!! Scared the crap out of me. Guess I need to do some reading up on it…
