A direct mail marketing message came to me today ahead of the Academy of Management meetings.

One of the folks over at BPP has this amusing story about trying to use eco diapers and findng that “reality overhwlems the good inetentiosn of the crusade.”
Could sum up my challenges in writing too. What to do when the reality is you?

milk of four cows.
Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow has dropped dead.

3. Hit the “I’m feeling lucky” button.
The good folks at orgtheory.net cite some research showing that Ikea’s naming of products is not as random as meets the eye of the non-Scandinavian.
nonrandomness that i can’t explain « orgtheory.net
I swore off Ikea after we reached a certain income threshold. I’d been burned by too many of those lock down bolts-on-the-end-of-screws.

Not only did they diss cute, rakishly-tilted Pluto, no the astronomers are really messin’ with my head.
McClatchy Washington Bureau | 03/04/2008 | Our solar system isnt what it used to be
Under the new definition, the International Astronomical Union has officially recognized 11 planets: eight traditional ones plus three “dwarf planets. The dwarfs are Pluto; Ceres, which was thought to be an asteroid between Mars and Jupiter; and Eris, an object thats slightly larger than Pluto and farther from the sun.
At least 40 more dwarfs have been spotted even farther out and are awaiting official recognition. They bear names such as Quaoar, Sedna, Orcus, Varuna and Ixion. Dozens of others are known only by code numbers.
Maybe they miss the golden days of Galileo and Copernicus. They figure the stodgy field of astronomy will be shaken up by creating controversy and having the civil-religious authorities persecute them so they can be martyred on the high altar of science.
They still seem street-dumb though. They gave away those dwarf planet names for firesale prices. What would the naming rights of a dwarf planet be worth? How many telescopes could be bought with the proceeds from the official Gates planet, or Nike planetoid.
