Thrift Store Champion: I just had to watch a four minute video about it as part of this training.
Ones on blogs and Google docs are up next.

Thrift Store Champion: AWESOME.
The video wasn't lying when it said that blogs democratize the media.

me: if somebody made a video about it, it must be true
it's like tv that way
Thrift Store Champion: Plus, it was a YouTube video.
Oddly enough, though, there's no video about YouTube in this tutorial.

me: well, I think John mccain would remind you that if you're going to go tubing, you should always wear a life jacket
Thrift Store Champion: Sage advice.
It's that kind of thinking that's going to shake up Washington.
me: with a team of mavericks
Thrift Store Champion: Mavericks always travel in packs.
Like wolves, except it's much harder to shoot them from helicopters.
me: moving in packs is pretty much part of the definition of "maverick"
Thrift Store Champion: I really, really hope that they have matching embroidered jackets.
I want one that says "Hose Hotrod"* on the chest.

me: I'm totally putting part of our chat on my blog
names have been changed to protect the innocent
Thrift Store Champion: That's perfectly fine with me.
I can't believe I'm going from watching a video about blogs to being part of one!
What a wonderful age we live in! I think John McCain would agree if he could figure out what the hell we were talking about.
