Suzy Bogguss just tried to sell me a neti pot on TV.

It seems to be some odd device with which organic types perform waterboarding on themselves. I think I'll just stick with letting the Dr. Pepper go up my nose.

I like The Sign of Peace at church.

It gives me an excellent opportunity to turn around and gauge how likely the people behind me are to call DSS on me as soon as they get home.

Step 1. Put down the instruction manual.

I've heard it said that the world is evolving so quickly that if you stop to read instructions, what you are trying to learn will be outdated by the time you finish reading.

This is exactly why I don't think everybody has to go to college.

When my 8yo son told me over breakfast that he knew what sex was, there were many appropriate responses:

 1. Where did you learn about that?
2. How do you feel about it?
3. Do you have any questions?

Me? I chose:
4. Well, don't tell your brother.

Never let them put the printer near your desk.

No matter what your title (art director, head of catering, CFO), if you sit near the printer people will ask for help with it. It's as if they think proximity gives you printer wisdom. As if, while the rest of the office toils in isolation, the printer is silently sending you the untold secrets of the printing world.

I know. I'm one of those people. Where's the 11 x 17 paper?

It's Good People Day 2008! (click for details)

And I'm honoring Max Pfennighaus at Digital Influence Group! Besides being an all-around great guy, he was the first to send my blog to a bunch of Social Marketing people thus garnering me the first followers who weren't my mom. Thanks, Max! And happy Good People Day! (And thanks to Michelle for sending it to Max. You rock, too!)

You invent it. I'll promote it.

I'm starting a new feature on this blog. If you invent the products of my dreams for me, I will promote them on my blog for you.

Today's product: Face Spray.
Like hairspray only it keeps your makeup in place. (Even on the windiest of days!)
