i overheard this in new york

Guy on Cell Phone, 40th St. and 8th Avenue:
“The time has come for you to DO the thing, as the saying goes. And in this case, the thing is drugs.”

Ahem: Honchos Take Note

A study by Catalyst, a consultancy, found that American companies with more women in senior management jobs earned a higher return on equity than those with fewer women at the top. This might be because mixed teams of men and women are better than single-sex groups at solving problems and spotting external threats. Studies have also suggested that women are often better than men at building teams and communicating. “A guide to womenomics” 4/12/06 The Economist

the daily grind

It is clear the future holds opportunities – it also holds pitfalls. The trick will be to seize the opportunities, avoid the pitfalls, and get back home by 6:00.

Lame roundup

Seriously lacking with the posts of late.

I takes all of five seconds to chuck something up here. I get thoughts all throughout the day, and then I forget. Or else I get home and am too tired. Or I know it’s going to be boring — not clever — so I just take a pass. But not tonight …

– I am getting back in shape. My body is changing. It’s slow & subtle. Not something anyone other than I would notice, but I notice and I like it.

– It’s spring. Exercise energizes me. And thanks to the wonders of modern medicine, I can sleep. And when I’m awake I am less consumed by worry. Drugs are good, unhh kay?

What to do with all of this extra juice? A lame roundup’s a start.

mostly accurate except for the implication that i get laid a lot …

Kate’s musings tempted me to take The Famous OkCupid Test.

Apparently, my ‘love’ type is The Playstation: Random Gentle Sex Master (RGSMf). I knew I wasn’t a priss, but I’d have thought I’d have to be hookin’ up a lot more to qualify for this one. Whatevs. What can I say … it’s hard out there for a pimp!

The Playstation description as follows:

Easy to turn on. Hard to beat. You are The Playstation.

You’re a nice girl, and you have lots of sex. It’s therefore highly likely that you’re attractive, and you’re certainly outgoing & friendly. Plus, this healthy physical attitude of yours indicates deeper emotional well-being and stability. Unheard of. When guys dare to dream, they dream of you.

You don’t get attached too easily, and, to wit, you’re not necessarily looking for something long-term right now. That’s a bigger asset than you know. Though, physically speaking, you’re open to anything, you’re keeping your emotional side well-protected. This means there won’t be a lot of wreckage to clean up whenever you decide to settle down.

In the meantime, the men you share yourself with actually respect you. Like them, you enjoy sex for its own sake and don’t need any other validation for pleasure than pleasure itself. Hopefully, you have the good sense to blow off anyone who thinks less of you for that. Usually, this is the part of the description where we offer some life-correcting advice, but honestly, we can’t think of anything about you we’d change. Keep on fucking, partner.

this is why you NEVER yield eye contact to odd looking strangers on the subway.
