She was a pretty cool boss though.
What does Ipsos Reid do? Just those polls the news always talks about? Or do they do ... other stuff... ?

My boss is pretty cool with giving me time off for events and games. I've already booked the weekend in June for CANOP08, and the week of KS4 in case I can find a way out there...

I did get some looks when I was trying to explain Zeon's Zombie games of '07

"War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend: the city of the Men of Numenor, and I would have her loved for her memory, her ancientry, her beauty, and her present wisdom. Not feared, save as men may fear the dignity of a man, old and wise." - J.R.R. Tolkien
