Things that are dumb

1. The new ad campaign for New York Sports Clubs. For those who live outside the area (or haven't seen it) the campaign is "______ better" - the idea that with each new ad they will "fill in the blank" with details about how a NYSC membership will enhance your lives. They've given out tshirs to the staff and encouraged them to fill in the blanks themselves. Most of the shirts ended up with what you'd expect - "Look Better", "Feel Better", etc - but some of the staff did get creative. My favorite entries we're the "Work This T-shirt Better" and the "Drop It Like It's Hot Better". Surprisingly enough no one had a "Cruise Better" or "Do Crystal at the Roxy Better" t-shirt.

2. Speaking of dumb- we had some women from Equinox come in to work to try and sell memberships to their clubs. It looked like they they picked the hottest women employees they could find, squeezed them into a uniform one size too small and unleashed them upon my company. These women were also as shameless as they were hot - clearly sticking their cleavage in my face as many times as possible during our brief conversation. Clearly this was a waste of time.

Of course, no conversation on dumb things would be complete without touching upon our president.

Thanks to Reuters, we now know that W has to ask Condi Rice for permission to use the bathroom.

On another note entirely- thanks to my brother Chuck for designing us a new banner!
