Good #@(%ing Advice

I was having a very grumpy day the other day when I happened to stumble upon a non-censored version of this poster. I freaking love it. I did a bit of searching and it is from a website called Good Fucking Design Advice. (The not-clean version is here.)

I was so ecstatic that I did a little dance at my desk (my co-workers thought I had finally gone insane). 

SOE LobbyOne week later, I took a cab from my hotel in the Gaslamp Quarter to the SOE office. I was paranoid about being late and nervous as if I was going to an interview. I arrived half an hour early and fidgeted in the lobby while waiting. Ashlanne was ready for me a few minutes later.
