Monday/ be nimble

Release your inner geek!  Picture featured on the NIMBL company’s home page.

It’s my last week working in Denver on the SAP implementation project for the oil and gas company here.   The project only goes live at the end of the year, but I cannot stay.  I will start working soon on a different project, at a gas and electric utility company in California.

So this last week or so I have been handing over my responsibilities to consulting colleagues from a company called Nimbl.  Be nimble! is their tag line (naturally).  I would say ‘nimble’ is a word that is not used in everyday language.  And it reminds me of a guy called Jack*.

*From the nursery rhyme –

Jack be nimble
Jack be quick
Jack jump over
the candlestick.

[From Wikipedia] Jumping candlesticks was a form of fortune telling and a sport. Good luck was said to be signaled by clearing a candle without extinguishing the flame. A variation of this rhyme is featured in the classic song, ‘American Pie (1971)’, sung by Don McLean.   It goes as follows:

Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick
Jack Flash sat on a candlestick
‘Cause fire is the devil’s only friend.
