Work Mergency [Sep. 26th, 2008|09:58 am]

[Current Mood |busybusy]

Well, work has gone bat sh*t crazy as we push to get CS4 out the door as we've announced it and still don't have the "now shipping" flashing. Until it is flashing on the website expect I'm working my tail off on last minute Suite things. I'm hoping not to do overtime tonight or have to work this weekend since Craig and I still have a slight cold, so I've got machines downloading builds like mad. I have a dream of going shopping to Target and Forever 21. I really want to go to both places, and Sephora.

Anyhow, sending out some love, first to carryaway and hoping her pain is better. She's out of the ER with some pain pills, but has been throwing up and entirely unable to lift her arm due to her spine being on strike. Craigy and I will be checking on her tomorrow for sure even if we don't hike.

Also to Ocean, a.k.a. omcintyre who is in surgery. Sending the healing prayers.

Lastly, a big THANK YOU to dove who met me for dinner last night and gave me the most amazing surprise gift for no reason! This beautiful basket full of yummy smelling bath soaps and bath bombs that I can't wait to use. The perfect gift for a dirty girl in physical therapy. I'm lucky. I also got an in depth football guide from Angela to help celebrate the season. I hope to learn something new. Ok back to work! Ack busy.

It's a little bit shocking how fast the product cycle is on Software. Especially something as huge as the Creative Suites.

I plan to work with CS3 for a while, though I'm curious what's new in 4.

The overview at http://tv.adobe.com/#vi+f1556v1715 is worth watching for sure.

(I got here through tulleandtiaras's LJ.)

Ah, you work at Adobe in Fremont? I've ridden through there a few times on my bike. For some reason -- I guess it's the aesthetics of the campus -- I figured you guys had nice, calm, stable release cycles, especially compared to us down at Amazon. ("You need what? When? Wait, what do you mean you're launching in an hour?")

Good luck on the launch!

Yep, I work at the Adobe Seattle office. Love it! Just got back from a nice lunch on Lake Union, now back to the chaos. :)

Lanette..

i just noticed the craziest thing EVER. omcintyre, if she is the one in the same Ocean McIntyre that grew up in North Hollywood California is a childhood friend of mine and i have ALWAYS wondered what happened to her.

If she reads this, my brothers name is Jeremy, we lived on Whitsett and my moms name is Moe (Maureen).. my name is Christine Blow and we were the poor kids at Strathern Eleme

I am going to send her a message but holy crap nuggets batman.

Re: Guilty Co-worker

Argh. Almost done. Let's just say I gave "post postmortem" feedback on the validation tools AGAIN. I kind of wanted to kill myself a few times using one of the tools (You know the one). However, everything else passed, so I am on my last check.

Sorry you are so sick. I hope you feel better this weekend so you can enjoy it.
