My new favorite word. (For today at least.)
A little while back, I got a notice that all of our Delta miles were expiring and had to be spent on magazine subscriptions. There are four of us. I got a lot of magazines - I can't even remember what all I subscribed to. So far, I've received issues of Entertainment Weekly, Dwell, Martha Stewart Living and Time. The Martha Stewart kind of surprised me - not sure what I'll do with that. But, I admit I dig the lady. The Time has been awesome. I haven't gotten my news anywhere but the Internet in ages. This last week's issue has a HUGE spread on what Obama can learn from FDR. I've only done a rapid skim so far, but am a little disconcerted that I haven't seen a mention of his responsibility for the internment of my peeps back in the day. I suppose the magazine isn't advocating Obama move in that direction, but I'd still like to see it acknowledged. Ok, I got totally off topic. I did have a point and it is that this last week's issue turned me on to my new favorite word. Poorgeoisie n.- Rich entrepreneurs and executives who strive to look like starving artists.
