Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Lamar! Why am I talking to you on your cell phone instead of in person? I put you in charge of delivering our new electric car here at the auto show! It’s missing, and so are you!
This place is full of journalists, cameras, live coverage, streaming video, all kinds of free publicity. Where’s my car?
Relax, Boss. Prepare to be dazzled!
Really? Try me.
Instead of just having the car there already, like all the other brands, I’m going to screech into the show at 80 miles an hour, stopping just inches away from a solid concrete barrier, to show how well she handles.
They’ll be talking about this thing for months!
Lamar, I’m not sure about this. I can see you off in the distance now. You’re coming in VERY fast!
Blog Guy, have you been over to the auto show to see the new models?
You bet, and this year they’re great, especially the Audi. I actually bought one!
Wow! Tell me all about them.
Well, the Ferrari and Jeep both come with one in a black dress, and the one that comes with the Chrysler has a white dress…
Staff, this holiday season we’re going for broke. We’ve jammed our store full of flat-screen TVs of all sizes, wall-to-wall, and now we need to make shoppers think they can’t live without owning one.
Lamar, you were in charge of selecting content to excite the shoppers. They need to be slobbering, frothing at the mouth, willing to spend everything they have for one of these TVs.
Blog Guy, like many readers, I come to your blog for most of my automotive news. If I’m not mistaken, isn’t the LA Auto Show underway? How about some information on the new models?
Sure. We have hundreds of photos from that event, and I’m all over it.
It looks like red stiletto heels are really big now, and…
Let me stop you for a minute, Blog Guy. Those are legs and shoes. I want to know about CARS!
What a glittering evening this is, folks. The celebrities are arriving now for our Lux Style Awards. With us here is a man who came all the way from Hollywood to help set up our arrival festivities, and he’s the best in the business. Sir, what should we call you?
Lamar. Just Lamar.
And what do you think of our venue here, Lamar?
It’s quite modern. You’ve got the red carpet, the whole nine yards.
Oh, I believe it’s longer than that, Lamar. So give us some inside information about how you set up this arrival event.
I’ve been thinking I may be in the market for one of those Kindle gadgets that let you read a book without risking paper cuts, ink fumes and other bookbinding dangers. I won’t boast, but 2010 may be the year I actually read a novel.
Problem is, I want to try it out first. Difficult, since they come from Amazon, which doesn’t exist in the real world.
Blog Guy, I’m planning some vacations and I wonder what I can look forward to in the world of airline travel. I figure it can only get better, right?
Sure, if that’s what you’d like to believe. But you might want to look at a new airline seat configuration, the so-called “standing seat,” just unveiled at a conference on aircraft interiors.
So? We’re all waiting.
Oh, gee, sorry. I can’t keep up with every little fad.
Here goes. Let’s see. Uh, Lea Michele, that actress from “Glee,” was there.
