Random thoughts.

I think one of the reasons people are so fat today is that everything sounds like it's something you can eat--everything sounds like food.

I am in Boston now, having attended my older daughter's college graduation. And I'm staying at a fairly nice hotel.

I wash my face with an oatmeal soap. Then I wash my hair with Rosemary-mint shampoo. Together, they'd make a pretty good meal. Though, truth be told, Rosemary Mint sounds like a small-station newscaster in the mid-west.

Finally, there's my mother. Genghis Mom, I used to call her when she let me out of the restraints. She was so evil she gave my sister a Klaus Barbie doll to play with.

I hope your daughter isn't going into advertising. If she's smart, she'll do what other smart people do--go into the real knowledge professions: law, medicine, engineering, education.

Anonymous, you are more positive than I am about the efficacy of other professions. They're pretty much all diseased and low-wage industries now.

Congratulations, George (and George-daughter)!

I hoped you cried and imagined her in kindergarten and hated the ragged young man she introduced you to and and had a fabulous time.

Brandeis? B.C.? Berklee? Harvard??

Give a hint and Anonymous and I can guess what she's going into. :) If she got anything at all from Pop, she's smart enough for all of them.

George, say what you will about the state of many of our more noble professions, the fact is you can't fake being a good doctor or enginner or teacher of classic Greek antiquity. But one can make-pretend he's a good adman for an entire career. Your blog is a testament to the all the charlatans and poseurs that run your industry.
