I got a huge chicken burrito as a parting gift. Swee.

I participated in a focus group today for a friend of mine, the focus of which* was the Influence of Hip-Hop Endorsements on Athletic Footwear Purchases. My answer was, 'It doesn't influence me at all because I'm only buying Converse from now on forever and ever.' I love my Converse.

I did mention in the focus group that I knew who all the artists they mentioned were, but I didn't say that I don't really listen to their music. It appeared to me as I was driving home that I should have said something along the lines of "I listen to the oldies station most of the time. So I'm probably more influenced by Jay and the Americans than Jay-Z! Or less by G-Unit and more by The Spinners themselves!"

So clever in hindsight! Such a nerd!

* The group, not the friend. It may be her focus as well - at least for this semester - but that's not what I meant. Besides, she really ought to be a "whom" instead of a "which." She doesn't have a pointy hat or a wart. THAT I KNOW OF! Alright, this footnote is longer than the post is at the point where I'm writing it, so I'm going to stop now.

I think my favorite thing about you is that a lot of the time, I seem cool when I'm compared to you.

Thank you for representing the small yet extremely stylish segment of the American population ridiculously loyal to their Connies. Never forget that it's everyone else who's wrong.

I promised I would say how nice Sarah is on her blog because she offered to sit in on my school project. So here goes: Sarah is a very nice person.

Yay, I did it. But, I'm sure I'll think of something clever in hindsight, too.

Now, 2 things to get straight:
1. I do NOT have warts - anywhere.
2. I may have a point hat - somewhere.

Thanks Sarah!!!

You're hilarious.

And frankly, music doesn't influence to me purchase anything.

Oh in case I haven't told you, I linked you up.

Yippee! You are in my RSS feeds and will be linked to the next time I get around to overhauling my blogroll. :)

Hey! You shouldn't be in the focus group! Didn't you do a similar project last semester??

Erm... sort of... theirs is on consumer behavior and mine was marketing. But I made them aware of my bias before I was even appointed to the focus group! So if I shouldn't have been included, that's on their heads.
