He e-mailed asking if I could make some updates to his department's Web site. Since I am a Web developer, this does fall under my scope of responsibilities.
G: "On [such and such] page, can you make [such and such] change?"
Me: "Where's my money?!?!"
G: "Who needs money when I can offer you your own domain in Hell? www.kevinruleshades.hel."
Me: "Your change will go up on Friday after I take down [such and such] page, is that cool? This is, of course, pending the registration of kevinruleshades.hel. I need hard-copy confirmation before I'll proceed."
G: "Friday sounds good to me. Thank you for all your hard work!!! You now rule over the hellish domain set aside for our current Republican leaders!!!!!!!!!"
Me: "Does that make me one of them or does it just give me the right to make their afterlives a living hell?"
G: "You have power over their souls for an eternity or 8 years, whichever comes first. :)"
Me: "I'd better make sure to take full advantage of those two terms in hell, eh?"
So I am now apparently Satan.
I think this is a pretty cool step up in my professional work experience. Strikes me as a logical career step, anyway.
This sort of thing has got to look great on a resume, am I right?
Seriously, if it was between some random schmoe who has worked steadily for a company or two in his career and could possibly offer up his meager Rolodex of clients and me, the former Overlord of Hell, who would you hire?
I'm a lock!
Hot damn, red is so me!
