Think Of It Like Christmas Eve …

… the fire is crackling, the tree is up, the presents are all nicely wrapped under the tree – begging to be opened – there is festive cheer all around.

What am I going on about?

Yes, the A[P]SOTW assignment is finally here tomorrow.


Let’s just hope you don’t unwrap your present and find it’s another out-of-date, totally inappropriate, piece of crap from Auntie Mabel that you’ll be putting straight into the Salvation Army’s collection bag.

Guess we’ll find out tomorrow.

so its back. my condolences to every fucker looking forward to this.

and campbell, would you mind explaining to me why the fuck i havent been asked to judge this? my advice is fucking legendary and would be far more valuable than whichever tinpot “experts” youve asked to be involved.

oh i know why, you couldnt afford me.

its time you understood campbell, quality doesnt come cheap. but as we all fucking know via your dress amd music sense, you dont do quality. cheap bastard.

I didn’t want to intimidate the people who were thinking about doing the assignment by introducing your brains into the mix. Don’t get me wrong, the other judges are all brilliant, but obviously you operate at a different level.

Andy’s disappointment aside, I’m looking forward to seeing what evil you have devised for people tomorrow. I’m sure it will be much more “cool Santa” than “Auntie Mabel” and incredibly valuable experience and learning.

What do you mean tomorrow? I had the slideshare link sent to me three days ago. And yes, it ruined my day. But, being a glass half-full type of guy, I realise this means I don’t have to look at this blog, so let me wish every one a happy weekend.

Comment by andy@cynic

Unsolicited third party. Nothing to do with me. But I’m going to enjoy your reaction to it.

Comment by John

you keep believing that.

Comment by andy@cynic

Did you really?

If you looked at it, I bet it made even less sense than the rubbish I write on here. Fortunately that is actually part of the assignment … or at least that’s my excuse.

Comment by Rob

I emailed you the solution. Though you probably misdjudged it as abuse.

Comment by John

You mean I sent it straight to the delete bin.

Seconds of learning stretched out over 3 months.

and thats if campbell is quick writing up the judges bollocks. if its his normal pace, itll be 2020 if theyre lucky and his heart holds out.

Thanks for the vote of confidence on my effectiveness and health.

About time Robert.

I’m looking forward to reading the challenge you have set and I know Steve is looking forward to evaluating the submissions.

Good luck to everyone who participates.

Comment by Lee Hill

So I’ve heard. Let’s hope he – and you – see the validity in what we’re trying to get people to see/learn and why.

Comment by Rob

It’s a great task.
Did I mention I’m off to the Nurburgring for a motor racing jolly today?

Comment by northern

Do you expect me to feel sorry for you?

Giving a semi-compliment at the beginning of your comment won’t buy me. Oh no. Well, maybe a little bit …

Comment by Rob

It’s not all good, on the way I have to suffer the evil empire of peer pressure also known as Mumnsnet
