Secret Santa

Monday, December 20th, 1999

I think about once in your life, you get a present that is so perfect, and made with so much skill, that it breaks you. Saturday night, I got that gift. I have my suspicions to who the culprit is, by the incredible craftsmanship, and care put into it. I was of coarse expecting a bag of pennies, or some wise ass gift that would make me suck in my belly for the next year, but I got something right out of my sketchbook. I have never gotten a better present, ever. My mom has tried for years to find so King Kong toy that would fit my liking, but it has never been made. No Toy store has it, and no collector can buy it. Because it is mine.
Thanks with all my heart to whoever made my gift.

Robin looks great

Sunday, December 19th, 1999

Our own Robin, the cute gal in animation is going to cut her hair this weekend. The Bunch of us have been begging and pleading to her not to get rid of the sassy look she has cultivated. But to dead ears our please have fallen. This is the last hope we have. We are begging all to help us foil this dastardly plot to cut the “sassy” out of the animation dept. Please help by telling her To just say no!

ps we all know it is a woman’s right to blah, blah, blah. That has nothing to do with “Sassy” and it is no fun. So keep those e-mail to yourselves.

Please help

Me of coarse

Sunday, December 19th, 1999

Hey , so my shot Ck1 went down to L.A. for a final yesterday, and the Comping was a final, and the Lighting was a final. And let me say good job Saba and Gurden if that’s how the hell you spell your name, but the animation needed some changes. Now correct me if I’m wrong but I think that’s a first. Comping and lighting finals,…..animation changes. Oh I’m not proud. But I thinks it’s a new one. I just gotta get the guy with the mohawke to come look at my changes and then I will be right back on top again, so don’t fear.

I’m staying

Wednesday, December 8th, 1999

I figured I will tell you guys first

I just wanted all of you to know that I’m staying right here. Phil couldn’t drag me out those fucking doors. And I couldn’t get a job anywhere else besides a deli. I really hate most of these idiots I work with, but I’m going to stay anyway. So I will be at my desk.

PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ANY OF YOUR #@!*?% IN EDITORIAL – your mom, your maid,and your dog do NOT live here

this includes:
coffee and tea mugs
uneaten food
and anything else you deem necessary to bring in here for your huddles, cut-ins, etc.

we know it’s hectic for everyone right now (more rocks, more rocks!), and that includes us –
it doesn’t help that we have to take the time to throw away half-full paper coffee cups, etc, etc, just to be able to get to our keyboards without spilling stuff on them

again, don’t make us start naming names……

Now people.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, those people in editorial are a bit bunchy. I’m not going to say that they aren’t friendly, cause I think that Krebs guy is kinda nice( and cute) but it took many coffee offerings during troopers to make him talk to me. But if you are going to leave food around, by all means leave it on my desk. I get the feeling that if we all don’t work together to give a hoot don’t pollute in editorial, they might just start shooting at us one day. It is a scientific fact that editors are very high strung and they often still kill frogs as adults. I think that kevin guy has had at least five different pet dogs in the last year alone, and his basement smells funny. So again come over to my desk and litter, I love that shit, and leave those people in editorial alone.
