Day job goes geek

Okay, since I work for as a technical writer for a software company, the day job has always been a little geeky. Yesterday, it got a little more so.

Our tech writing compatriots in the Manila branch created T-shirts for all the writers. On the back are haiku-like sayings, based on job/personality (or so I’m guessing). Here’s mine:

 I’m not actually sure what this says about my personality, but I like it. Other favorites include:

XML, CSS, CMS, HTML, XHTML, XSL-FO, PDF, TIFF, GIF
Alphabet soup
Makes me nauseous

Not to mention:

The haughty reviewer
Demands to see the document
I send an XML file
He has no viewer
Vengeance is mine

And of course:

Young Jedi tech writer
His mind corrupted with unstructured Frame and the madness of Word
You must unlearn all you have learned

The last gets bonus points for the Star Wars reference. Very talented, our Manila tech writers.

  1. My fave:

    The haughty reviewer
    Demands to see the document
    I send an XML file
    He has no viewer
    Vengeance is mine

    But they all made me crack up. Very clever.
