If you are single...

Then Chuck Woolery wants to talk to you!

In my mail yesterday, I got a direct mail piece for Great Expectations, some dating service. Actually, our apartment got two messages addressed to "Current Single Resident." Now, why did they send two pieces of mail (same mail) to the same person?

The purpose of this mail piece is to illustrate simultaneously that direct marketers both know too much and not enough about the people they are targeting. While we were correctly targeted as single, we were mistargeted as being likely to use such a service. Pah.

Super Mega Productive

It's a morning!

I got up at 4:30 a.m. to make the base for the French Vanilla ice cream, which I will finish tonight (yeah, ice cream maker).

I re-read volume 1 of Clover, Akage no An, and some of Foucault's Pendulum. I started volume 2 of Clover, and I checked my email, all before 7:10 a.m.

I can't wait to go home and finish the ice cream.
