It’s a toss up as to which is creepier: yesterday’s clown or the under-the-couch cat.

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Yep, we had a great week at day camp -- the kids had fun, the youth staff at the range did a great job, and only a few of the adults were PITA. Now we have to completely tear down the camp and pack it away in a shipping container. Today.

Hai, Sven and Paddy!

AFAIC, yesterday’s murder-clown was exponentially creepier than teh couch cat. In fact, I was triggered by that clown…triggered, I tells ya. 😉

Paddy --

Hope the tear-down and packing goes faster than you anticipate. And before it gets too hot.

Have already been to Waddlemart as well as Ingles (a regional grocery) which had their excellent ground chuck on sale, so I modestly stocked-up.

Well, that’s not going to happen. The record is to have the container closed and locked at 5 pm. I had to bail out early (although not before we had the archery range completely torn down and packaged up) because I have a couple of papers to write.

How Subarus Came to Be Seen as Cars for Lesbians.

“There was such an alignment of feeling, like [Subaru cars] fit with what they did,” says Paul Poux, who later conducted focus groups for Subaru. The marketers found that lesbian Subaru owners liked that the cars were good for outdoor trips, and that they were good for hauling stuff without being as large as a truck or SUV. “They felt it fit them and wasn’t too flashy,” says Poux.

Subaru’s strategy called for targeting these five core groups and creating ads based on its appeal to each. For medical professionals, it was that a Subaru with all-wheel drive could get them to the hospital in any weather conditions. For rugged individualists, it was that a Subaru could handle dirt roads and haul gear. For lesbians, it was that a Subaru fit their active, low-key lifestyle.
