Lax blogging. Trying to get back in the saddle again. So:
A much-belated update on the family job front. My dear husband is now a partner of Seed IP Law Group, in Seattle. BUT WE DIDN’T MOVE THERE! How is that possible, you ask? Technology, my friends. Marc is connected to the office and spends a week there a month, but works 75% of the time out of our home office. He’s loving it and we’re loving reconnecting with friends and family and former colleagues in the city where we spent over 15 years of our lives together.
Why am I boring you with this? Because trademarks and stuff, of course! Pop culture!
Pop culture first, of course. Food shopping at New Seasons, the gourmet supermarket on Mercer Island that had the nerve to open only after we moved away:
Yep, they’re pretty insistent about the local provenance of their goods. Kinda made me think of this. It’s local.
Next, there’s the witty, pop-culture-referential advertising for the Puget Sound Trip Planner App:
Bad photo. It says, at the bottom, “Wherever you go, there we are.” I cannot resist a Buckaroo Banzai reference.
Finally, not even in Seattle but just because, here I manage to hit two of my main sweet spots, Francophilia and grammar/spelling errors:
WTF, people, fromage is masculine. So just because you want to be even cutesier, even Frenchier, that doesn’t mean that you make petit into petite. THAT’S NOT HOW IT WORKS! (This is a line we’re going to be repeating a lot these days, I fear.)
Anyway, happy New Year from the blog! This year in Barcelona, for all you INTA folks!
