PapaScott I like big blogs and I cannot lie! 🐘

That's Me in the Corner

Another pitfall of telecommuting is that they start an internal blog at the office and you don't find out about it until 6 weeks later (no, it's not Technorat). They've been posting profiles of various co-workers, and since I doubt that Poolie will come to Hamburg to interview me, I've decided to save him the trouble.
