The thought has crossed my mind that I will sink like a BP oil rig before the month is up and be hated by all... but then I have thought this before and ended up becoming an agency rock-star and loving the people I work with. No doubt the same will happen at Dare. Once they figure out my love of Lolcats, my inappropriate sense of humour and ruthless determination to be awesome in all I do I'm sure that things will be fine. As Pam Ann says "We only make the same mistake three times... ....maybe four." Fortunately I'm not Pam Ann! Phew!
Now... just to decide where to put my "I love my cat" picture frame.
My only gripes about Dare so far are no company laptop (I'm using one of those big boxes, you know, like they used to have in olden times) and no company iPhone. The former I can live without (for now - until I find a justifiable business reason to insist on getting a shiny new one on order)... the latter... well I feel like I've had an arm cut off. For instance I went out for lunch earlier and had to rely on a PAPER map (like some sort of animal!). When did I make the switch from seeing the iPhone as a shiny gizmo to an extra limb? Until you go without the basics such as food, water, sanitation or iPhones you don't realise how important they are. I can't wait until the iPhone5 comes out and my current contract ends... I'm naked without it.
I just hope this one can make phone calls.
So what's my point? Well to sum up - Hugh is working at Dare, Hugh is happy and hopes he will more than do the job with utmost awesomeness and he wants an iPhone.
