Who Are You?

    I just got a form letter from the "National Registers Who's Who".

    Dear Company Owner,

    It is our pleasure to inform you blah blah blah

    Sincerely
    National Registers Who's Who
    Board of Directors

    It's followed by a form for me to fill out so I can tell them who I am. I'm not even a company owner.

    They don't care who you are. They just want to sell you an expensive book with your name in it.

    I've gotten those before but the spam was specific to my industry, came through my work e-mail.

    I thought this thread was about waking up in a Soho doorway.

    I've been planning to start a compendium of Who's Who compendiums. I will spam all the Who's Who publishers and let them know their Who's Who has been specially selected for our prestigious Who's Who list.

    Who's with me?

    I'm too old for a mid-life crisis, but it might be fun to have a Miata.

    And I thought this was about my favourite (the only) CSI show.

    Isn't that Pete Townshend's "little black book?"

    Who Are You was Moon's last album. Sad. Good drummer, though he was a more prolific drugger.
