A Julie Translator!

Ah, cool. Hopefully now I'll be able to figure out what the hell Julie was saying the other night at dinner. Fa' shizzle. Try translating nonfamous. Or at least read the translation of Jay's post this morning:

It's not even 9 am, 'n I've already been asked by my uber-boss's assistant "What time is yo' flight tomorrow?" This is not a question I particularly wanted hear, know what I'm sayin'?

"10 am, know what I'm sayin'? Why?"

"Then yo' ass could do an 8:30 conference call? The time da client wanted this afternoon won't work n' shit. "

Mind yo' ass, this is wit da clients who are pretty much da bane of my existence right at da moment." They are nice 'nuff muthas, 'n gravy clients, but hella, uh, collaborative, know what I'm sayin'? Ten emails 'n 6 phone calls a day collaborative n' shit. Six drafts when da timeline specifies two, wit each draft having mo' substantive comments than da last n' shit. So basically, as they close da cabin door 'n rip da phone out of my hands, I'll hear a low drone intoning something like "." ..what we really need see mo' of would be an example of customers who are integrating they business processes fo' greater operating productivity through enhanced teaming 'n Six Sigma recruiting 'n retention management n' shit. .." And my eyes will roll back into my heezee, 'n when I wake up we'll be in Maui!
