Remember how I said the construction industry is dead? There is no industry zombie action. It's still dead.
So here's a game I started playing this week whilst trying to stay awake at work. It's called "Putting The Names of People I Know Into The Wikipedia Search Engine".
I had no idea that I know so few Famous People. So far they include:
Big In Japan, for being a SUPERSTAR
my grandfather, as the publisher of a whole bunch of books listed under other people's entries
his brother, for starting one of the first discount supermarket chains in the US
a guy I went to grad school with, for making (what I personally have always considered to be) somewhat-ridiculous-but-very-successful art
my professor from grad school, for being a famous artist (and hence a professor in a grad school)
probably a bunch of other people related to my going to school, if I could be bothered to remember their names which apparently I can't (etc etc etc)
The Husband's cousin, for being a professional cricket player
I clearly don't hobnob enough. Or possibly I should learn to remember people's names more routinely.
Although I will say there are apparently many many people not in Wikipedia who probably could be. Maybe it's not that I don't hobnob. Maybe they need better publicists.
And can I also just say: When, oh when, will they start selling HobNobs in the US? Huh? WHEN? Will the madness never end?!?
So. Who do you know?
