On Friday, we had a little 5 à 7 hosted by none other than Rose, the office Boxer
I tried my hardest to mingle with my office mates but my internal dialogue from start to finish looked an awful lot like this:
MY ONLY HOBBY IN LIFE IS DOGS. I DON’T CARE ABOUT PEOPLE OR ANY OF THE MANY THINGS IN THIS UNIVERSE SUCH AS HAIRSPRAY OR GRANOLA BARS OR CUPBOARDS. I ONLY CARE ABOUT DOGS. SOMETIMES WHEN I GET TO A PARTY AND I SEE THAT SOMEONE HAS BROUGHT THEIR DOG ALONG, I’LL PRETEND THAT I’M A CAREFREE INDIVIDUAL WHO BARELY NOTICES THE DOG, BUT ON THE INSIDE I’M TOTALLY FREAKING OUT BECAUSE THERE IS A DOG IN THE SAME ROOM AS ME AND I’M NOT PLAYING WITH HIS FLOPPY EARS. EVENTUALLY, AFTER A FEW DRINKS, I FINALLY GET UP THE COURAGE TO ABANDON MY DISGUISE AS A NORMAL HUMAN BEING AND CEASE ALL HUMAN INTERACTION TO SPEND MY ENTIRE NIGHT PLAYING WITH THE DOG.

Who’s watching the game tonight?!
We’re disappointed that all the Canadian teams are out but I suppose we’ll root for the next best thing…

Want to follow Ghassan’s adventures at SXSW?
You can see what he’s up to on our Facebook page here or follow him on Twitter here!
Here I thought it was all about Jack White and Grimes! Turns out SXSW is also host to a ton of interesting workshops and panels about web and film! [I guess it’s pretty clear from the logo but really, who knew?] Even Frank Abagnale of Catch Me if You Can fame will be there!
Guess who else will be there? Kngfu’s very own Ghassan Fayad will be headed to Austin to take part in a panel discussion, When Filmmakers Meet Interactive Teams on Tuesday, March 13. As I’ve highlighted in previous posts, Kngfu has collaborated with both United States of Africa and Café de Flore on their accompanying websites and are currently working on the site for Ésimésac.
He also just found out that the place he had booked is now unavailable, so if you happen to have an old college buddy or your grandma lives in Austin near the venue, let us know!
