Startled me

This is coming from the man who increased P&G's adspend by a staggering 24 percent over the two years through October 2011, even though sales rose only 6 percent in the same period.


P&G's Old Spice campaign is a textbook example of what the entire company should be doing. The problem is that the entire company isn't doing it. Check out Mr. Clean's Twitter stream, for instance. Oh, right—he doesn't have one.

I'd be way happier about commercials if all of them were amusing or informative. Not just "BUY MY SHIT!"

Poor little kitty got in a fight or something a week or two ago. He developed a big open wound back by his tail, which then abscessed, burst, and we took him to the vet. They shaved the area a little, injected some antibiotics, checked his temp (no fever), and inspected the wound. They didn't seem to think it was terribly bad, though they did recommend inserting a drain. Opted not to, to give it a week and see if he starts to recover, or we'd be back. He did earn himself a cone though, so he wouldn't lick the wound. Since then, he has been the most depressed cat I've ever seen. Because it touches his whiskers and ear tips, he feels as though hes in a tunnel, and acts like it. Crouching when walking as if something's above him, lifting his paws to his ears as he walks, almost as if to step up and over something that isn't there, and he gets it stuck on EVERYTHING and is only now starting to learn how it works. At first, he didn't understand you had to back up, so he would just sit there and cry. Over the past few days, he's been getting better about getting around. This morning, I woke up and found him proudly sleeping at the foot of the bed with the cone off, next to him. Kitty is Houdini :lol:

His wound has been progressing, and doesn't appear to be filling with fluid again, though we couldn't tell the first time that it was either. So now I'm not sure what to do. Do we force him back in the cone and ride it out another week, or let him be happy and take the gamble that the wound is already healed enough? I suppose worst case scenario is that he licks the hell out of it and it re-abscesses and the drain goes in and the cone goes back on.
