it never fails

somethings just never chance. the things you appreciate and look
forward to and look back fondly on. Like Christmas when you still
believed in Santa, like going off to college before you discovered
alcohol or the g-spot or the proper combination of the two and now,
Bill Simmons' draft day diary. though not as good of the 2003
edition (nothing will ever be), it is a must read and i will probably
read it 15 times before next year. rarely is there good quality
analysis that can be laugh out loud funny.

political correctness

in the car this morning, when talking about our respective middle management heavy organzations, i made the comment, "sometimes its all chiefs and no native americans".   Wifey didn't get it.  Then i explained, I was referencing the expression all chiefs and no indians, with my tongue in cheek politically correct adjustment.  She still didn't get it. 
Apparently, she had never heard the expression before.  Guess the U of C Lab school was politically correct way before the rest of us

My list...

products that charge a premium for offering a cheaper or less quality product than their competitors.

Here is my start

- Nudie jeans
- Dove/Degree Ultimate Clear deodorant
- some type of plastic hangbag Wifey was telling me about

here's the secret... P&G are liars.

maybe you've seen the latest ads for Old Spice or Secret Deodorants.   Money-back guarantee.    One would think that if use the product and it doesn't work, P&G (the owner of the two brands) would do the right thing and refund your money.   WRONG!!
I recently called their Refund line (1-866-311-0795) to call and ask for a refund after my mother had green marks left on her underarm after using the product for the first.   But no, they want the original receipts, the UPC from the original document and enough information to fill a wikipedia site.   Who is actually going to have this information?  Only someone trying to get something for free.  Users of the product who are NOT trying to take advantage of the company, will get nothing back except a bad taste in their money to P&G.
Here's hoping all of the Secret complainers switch to Dove after they can't get their money back.    And stop using Tide too.

back from alabama

Ross Bridge might be one of the best golf courses in the world.  Next time I am in sweet home alabama.  Definitely need to make a point of playing (though not that 8300 yard version).
