I dunno about office goodies - yesterday the HR person put out a Godiva gift basket that someone had sent our company, and I actually got two truffles out of it because nobody else wanted 'em! Also, much empathy on that water situation (see my blog from last Friday)...

Heh. I think that's a sign of the time of year, Elayne. Truffles aren't normally something that lay around unloved and uneaten. ;)

The way my father used to say it was:

"You can have it right. You can have it cheap. You can have it fast. Pick two."

Heh. I used to hear that from a marketing guy I knew. He used to say we could get what we wanted fast, cheap, or good. You can have any two, but not all three.

As for Iraq - well, we're already spending billions, so I think it's pretty clear we didn't opt for "cheap" but I'm a little aggravated that we seem to be going for only one out of the two remaining.
