Email Attachment of the Week

Joke of the Week

Fun Things To Do In An Elevator:
1. Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside ask: "Got enough air in there?"
2. Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering: "Shut up, all of you just shut UP!"
3. Whistle the first seven notes of "It's a Small World" incessantly.
4. Sell Girl Scout cookies.
5. On a long ride, sway side to side at the natural frequency of the elevator.
6. Greet everyone getting on the elevator with a warm handshake and ask them to call you Admiral
7. When at least 8 people have boarded, moan from the back: "Oh, not now, motion sickness!"
8. Meow occasionally.
9. Wear a puppet on your hand and talk to other passengers "through" it.
10. Draw a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers that this is your "personal space."

Yep Bartman is still here. Hewitt.com webmaster email box got flooded
for 6 months after the "Bartman incident" -- wiseacre comments from
joke email addresses like harry.caray@heaven.com. Death threats and
junk too -- we actually had to forward those to the FBI (no kidding).
They pulled Bartman's name from Lotus Notes address book and his
voicemail was blocked for months.

hiya --
We used to live on Hinman in Evanston about 4 blocks south of
Dempster, so you're working in my old stomping grounds. (Saw
Eddie Vedder at the Cafe Express on Dempster there by the El one day!)
At Hewitt I am the lead web developer in the marketing dept. --
work mainly on hewitt.com, these days it's tons of coordinating
work of a couple vendors. (This winter I was managing [via email and
phone] 11 programmers in India, to build out the redesigned
hewitt.com -- that was pretty funky.) I also do little customer
conference registration sites, and Hewitt also does a lot of HTML
email so I help out on that.
Keeping really busy -- as you probably noticed I haven't touched
my website in like 4 years . . .
what're you doing at leapfrogonline?
sorry about your Cubs this year . . .

>Hey Andrew --
Yep, I'm still at Hewitt. Just rolled out a major redesign of
hewitt.com -- lots 'o database-driven stuff, pretty nifty.
We live in Wilmette now -- moved here in '03 for the good
schools. How do like working in Evanston? Where is leapfrogonline -- in
the technology park?
Good to hear from you -- I talk to Michele every so often --
she's done some work for Hewitt . . .
