MeFi Intern
This is the link to my daily blog of my summer internship with MetaFilter. Each day I describe the tasks and activities that I was apart of and all the random things my boss asks me to do.
Role: Jack of all trades.

I like showing up as "the boss" as if I'm some ever-present shadowy asshole figure.

And pb steals his workstation. You guys are the worst, I'm glad I have my own home office.

Oh, don't think we're not fucking coming over, because we are. And we will take your chair.

You're "the boss" Matt, because I was needig to quickly type my blog on day one and I wasn't sure whether you wanted me to use your name or not. And since I didn't use your name, I found it pointless to use Pauls. Plus it adds a sense of mystery to each of your roles in my blog.

I am reading this blog in the voice of Roast Beef from achewood and it kind of fits.

Any intern that starts the first day evangelizing hurling gets awesome points.

"my boss’s BMW"

That had better be a recumbent BMW or this is going to have some serious consequences for the brand.

Are you unionised? I strongly encourage you to join your trade union. It's the way people like us get our rights.

I like how he calls pb "the programmer."

Good luck coming to get my chair.

You should all have descriptive titles. "The Boss." "The Programmer." "The Librarian." "The Dirty Hippie."

The Dirty Hippie.

YM "The Donut Eater." HTH. HAND.

At the risk of potentially offending you, apologies: This comes off as a "haha what if there was such a thing as a Mefi Intern, what would their menial day be like?" joke blog.

Apparently it isn't?

It's completely fine, we all have our opinion. I was just curious.

"The Librarian." "The Dirty Hippie."

But then what is cortex's name? He is a very clean man, for a longhair.

They will call him Immanuel...

This is hilarious. Thank you for the laugh!

Now I'm going to spend my day imagining you being inconsolable over the death of Clarence Clemons or some Mirror Mirror universe where Cortex plays the saxophone.
