Slideshow, Slideshow

December 27th, 2009

William Blake’s “The Tyger” is great, but so are supporting deliverables.

Inspired by the great William Blake

Slideshow, slideshow, burning bright
In this meeting through the night
What sadistic clientèle
Could inflict all this upon me?

From what distant client site
Did he get this late night flight
Does he know that I’ve been up for hours
It’s been two days since I last showered.

Oh what project, and what part
Requires that I must break my heart
I wish my heart would cease to beat
Oh, anything to go to sleep.

Where’s my manager? What’s his game?
Up which rectum was his brain?
What’s the pricing, dare I ask
How long you think this work will last?

Now that I’ve talked through my career
And fixed objectives for the coming year,
Will he smile, my work to see?
And let me charge a fixed rate fee?

Slideshow, slideshow, burning bright
In this meeting through the night
What sadistic clientèle
Could inflict all this upon me?

Sonnet 116

Who’d have thought that Shakespeare would have been so good at helping you remember proper slide presentation skills?

Inspired by the great William Shakespeare

Let me not to the creation of good slides admit impediments
Love is not love which alters not when a bullet misplaced finds
Or bends with the cursor to remove.
O no! It is an ever fixed’ chart
That looks on text-boxes and transparent shading,
It is template to every wandering border
Whose cell unknown, although his value taken
Love’s not draft view, though master slides and themes
Within his preview button come.
Love alters not with his brief slide transition
But bears it out, even to the end of the deck.
If this be error and on my group aligned,
I never viewed, nor no man ever pressed F5.
