Video Clips ‘R Us

Happy Thursday. To some of you. Not me, apparently. No, instead I get slapped with a last minute project that had to have been done today, but my boss failed to dole out the project to anyone in a timely manner. Thanks a lot. This is totally me:

Well, I had asked the client -just to make sure- if all the information I needed was present for me to complete this las minute project. I was informed that yes, everything I needed was given to me.
