The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


Thank Mr Wieden & Mr Kennedy …

… because to celebrate Founders Day – which admittedly is a few days early – I, and all my colleagues, have buggered off for a couple of days for fun, frolics and drunkenness.

Well I say that, but we all know my version of the company getaway will be:

1. Drink diet coke.
2. Try to get my colleagues to acknowledge me.
3. Give up and go to my room to listen to Queen and watch some z-grade documentary.

But hey, a few days off work is still a few days off work.

Anyway, what this all means is that you get a couple of days rest from my blog rubbish – which is worth being a fan of W+K for, if nothing else.

See you Thursday.

I know W+K is almost as rich as China and China is almost as rich as you, but do you ever do any work or is your job a professional holiday maker?

I hope they only have warm red coke for you.

Comment by DH

Warm, red coke with lemon. Out of family bottles so its a bit flat.

Comment by Billy Whizz

That’s just pure evil Billy.

You’ll be saying that you hope I forget my toothbrush as well … so the sugar coated teeth bother me all bloody night. Bastard.

Comment by Rob

No need, you brits have shit teeth already.

Comment by Billy Whizz

Now I know the true reason why China’s economy is said to be slowing down.

Comment by George

China’s slowing down is still America’s wildest dream.

Comment by Rob

The internet depresses me.

Comment by John

You spelt internet wrong, it’s r-o-b.

Comment by Billy Whizz

You mean my phonecall on Friday depressed you.

Comment by Rob

You’re very productive at being unproductive. Enjoy your “work trip”.

No wonder everyone wants to work at W+K.

Comment by Pete

Makes me think about going to China.

Comment by Billy Whizz

You should Billy … they have Hooters, dodgy DVD’s & I understand everyone as clearly as I used to understand you.

Comment by Rob

Sigh

Comment by northern

Don’t give me that … you’re going to Korea and trust me, that is definitely not work.

Comment by Rob

That’s a fair point, but I guess I still have the moral high ground due to the fact I still have to inform work when I’ll be out, whereas I’m guessing you just let them know when you’ll be in.

Comment by northern

Boom Tish.

Comment by Rob

are you fucking shitting me? another holiday? what is w+k these days, an ad agency or a retirement home?

nice put down northern but it would be more cutting if you werent following campbells footsteps and sticking your face in the free trip gravy train.

Comment by andy@cynic

Do no work.

Comment by John

weekend is anyday

Comment by John

Oh you’ve all been having fun at my expense haven’t you. Well it’s over now, I’m back and I will get my revenge by posting blog posts from now until my next holiday which – I kid you not – is next week. Cue: Evil laugh.

Comment by Rob

Can it feel like a work holiday if you are doing the same thing you do every day?

Comment by DH

Has anyone talked to you yet Rob?

Comment by DH

No … you know I have issues with socialising and they have issues with socialising with me. Win:Win, Sort-of.

Comment by Rob

I noticed a photo of you standing on a table by yourself. That’s what Victorian teachers used to do to excessively naughty children.
It was either that or make them wear the ‘dunce’ hata

Comment by northern

Well the first part of your explanation sort-of holds true, but it had far more to do with me wanting everyone to notice my Freddie Mercury t-shirt than anything else.

You didn’t pay enough attention to the pic did you. Don’t blame you …

Comment by Rob

I’m having visions of the training day in The Office.
With a better lunch

Comment by northern

We didnt have lesbians. Sisters.

God, I hope you get that reference or I look an utter-pervert.

Comment by Rob

Given Andy is only making temporary appearances on this blog these days and I know he’d not want to let this opportunity pass, I will add “or a bigger utter pervert” on his behalf.

And yes, I’m still up – I’m waiting for my wife to call me who is out galavanting and wants me to escort her home. Does this make me ‘man of the year’?

Comment by Rob

It might do if you didn’t try to make such a big thing of it……….

Comment by northern

I wouldn’t be a man if I didn’t.

Comment by Rob

Is that an insight?
