    I am baffled at the lack of cell phone etiquette exhibited by some people. It's unbelievable. Otherwise normal people really disappoint me sometimes. The worst is when I am dining out with someone and they answer their phone. Their message to me is: you...

    As you gather for your awkward family 4th of July

    You know, Aunt Ruth always brings the fruit salad with the marshmallows. And that don't float in Seattle. And Jimmy tinkles in the pool. Cousin Lisa brings a new boyfriend and everyone calls him by the name of the old boyfriend. Anyway, as you gather...

    Interesting how Think Week has changed since Bill's role has decreased at good ole MS. I'll be back with more posts once smoke stops coming out of my ears...speaking of brains.

    From Kevin Turner's speech, referencing our "Laptop Hunter" ads, at our Worldwide Partner Conference: And so we've been running these PC value ads. Just giving people saying, hey, what are you looking to spend? "Oh, I'm looking to spend less than ...

    Ethical yoga: lead with your gut.

    To be verbed or not to be verbed.

    Hot hot heat

    • 0 Comments
    Seattle is broken. Or a little melty. Mother of pearl, these people cannot handle heat. I want to tell them that all the whining makes them hotter. It's a scientific fact. The thermometer in Seattle says 93 degrees, so that means we are 5 degrees short...
