    Lunch at McFadden's. Some staffing changes since I left sound interesting, but he can't really wrap his head around the number I'm asking for. They're kinda screwed because my replacement(s) did nothing but piss off my old accounts, but the number they're kicking around doesn't even meet my present salary.

    Looks like I'm keeping the black jeans in storage.

    Southside was right (there's a phrase you don't hear every day). That was an anti climatic letdown.

    Yeah, glad I invested so much emotion in this.

    I hope "The Following" isn't this disappointing.

    I rearrange words to make readers think "holy crap, I must drop everything and do what these words tell me."

    It's actually quite easy once you memorize the dictionary.

The genius behind that legendary Sea Monkeys marketing masterpiece was a guy named Mort Karpf, who is like the Jackie Robinson of copywriters, except he was white and Jewish, and possibly racist. I did my post-graduate thesis on the man and his incredible influence on the profession -- his massive cadre of wannabes and proteges mimicked his paradigm-shifting approach to grace the American narrative with now-entrenched gems including "I can't believe I ate the whooollle thing," and "Is that the story Jerry? -- That's the stooooorrrryyyyy." Sadly, like so many other geniuses he grew more reclusive in his older days, tired of the fans and paparazzi. According to hushed whispers in Madison Avenue watering holes, he snapped after seeing one too many horribly uncreative late night infomercials, and may have actually had a hand in the untimely deaths of Don Lapre and Billy Mays.

    Lmao!

    I never realized that 'lil d*ckweasel Lapre was dead. Had to google it. Pretty gruesome stuff.



    Karpf also needs to kill Antony SUllivan and the dick who put screens as the bottom of his rowboat.

    Had they marketed it as "AMazing glazz of cloudy Water".... they still would have been exaggerating.

    That's because an actual picture is much less fanciful.
