Scarface is dead, long live Scarface
Well OK, not dead, that’s overstating it. As you know, I’ve had an assistant for a while, much to my surprise and amusement. Thus far I’ve referred to this assistant only as Scarface, both to protect this person’s identity, and because it is hilarious. But mostly because it is hilarious. In a move that I applaud with loud isolated claps (the stirring, earnest, emotional kind, not the sarcastic kind) Scarface has moved on from Coulton Industries and taken a real job with a real company. And so I can now reveal that Scarface’s name was actually Meaghan.
I was going to write a fantastic post about Meaghan and our time working together and my extreme delight at seeing her take on the challenge of a brand new thing, but I see that she has beaten me to it with a post of her own that has made me all misty. It’s true, Meaghan now works for Tumblr, but she is also on the Twitter and on the Tumblr as a very talented writer and observer of things funny and sad.
Much as I would have liked to, I never intended to keep her prisoner here at my secret mountainous island lair forever. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about living a life it’s that you need to keep moving, and if there’s another thing it’s that you really should quit your job every once in a while and take on something new, maybe even something that seems crazy and scares the hell out of you. So I wish her well, and I thank her for her time of servitude. She was a great assistant, but I’m sure that she will be an even better former assistant.
But for all of us here at Coulton Industries the work goes on. There is a new Scarface, as there always will be, because it is my way. I’m not going to tell you anything about this person either, at least not until they break my heart and leave me alone in this godforsaken place (kidding Meaghan! I kid!).
That’s all for now. I’m painfully aware that the Summer is ending, and I got lots of stuff cooking that I hope to share with all of you soon.
