Transcript of JoCo's call
Hello Len, hello Nora, Jonathan Coulton. So Skymall, you know, this is actually true. I have spent more time reading Skymall on the plane than doing anything else on the plane. There's so much copy in there and it's all written in this incredible enthusiastic voice; even when they're talking about the most ridiculous crap. And I feel like everything in there is whimsical. And everything in there is for the person who has everything, which can't doesn't even make any sense. But, yeah, so this one. You know? What's not to like about Skymall? I've never actually bought anything in Skymall myself. Though, I have been tempted by the automatic self-cleaning litter box. Because I have a cat, and right now, I do all the litter box cleaning. It's not a very pleasant job. But then when you think about it, and you're about to actually plonk down the 60 bucks or whatever... You're like, well, you know, I don't know. I don't really want that in my house because I'm not going to like it, and then a few weeks later, I'm going to sell it at a garage sale anyway. So why don't I just cut out the middle man and not buy it? Anyway, that's Skymall. I've already revealed way too much about my consumer habits in this era of no privacy. And now I'm going to stop talking. Goodbye.
