Today, I'm honored to have Sreekesh Menon as this week's guest.
Sreekesh offers the following definition:
Business, n. The art of using two faces to accomplish one task.
About Sreekesh: Sreekesh Menon is a Project Manager for a large financial institution who writes poetry on his blog, A Little Insane, and records musings and amusing comments he hears on his less frequently updated site, The Business of life. I'm no judge of poetry but I admire his willingness to publish his and as far as I'm concerned it's very good. His ear is keen and he has a great sense of humor so the Business of Life site is fun.
Sreekesh is also one of the rare birds who began as a blogfriend and became a local, hang-out-with-sometimes friend. This Spring, he and another great and good online friend visited Los Angeles and I had the pleasure of meeting both. Since that time, Sreekesh moved from Dallas to Los Angeles and I had the privilege of attending his birthday party at a wanna-be redneck bar in Thousand Oaks, California. I'm here to tell you, he looks absolutely convincing in Cowboy boots and a black felt hat. I just know that any stagecoach trying to get down Highway 101 Friday night would have been in big trouble.
How to be a Wednesday Guest: Email me at dpascover at mac dot com. On a future Wednesday, after putting up the current week guest post I'll email you a word to define and request your definition and a graphic representing either you or your definition by the following Saturday. No profanity, please.
Sree - great definintion, especially aligned next to your blog face (nice touch, Doug).
"Taking Care of Business..." is now stuck in my head.
Couldn't agree more, Skeeresh. Still, I offer "Business: distracting substitute for life."
"We all wear masks"
- shrink to Stanley Hibkiss, The Mask
nice poetry, Sree
business: That, to which people it doesn't concern are all up in. Syn: bidness.
Sar, I can't take credit. That's Sreekesh' idea. It works, though, doesn't it?
Weirsdo, I thought that was living.
Karma, art films are beyond my depth. He's good, right?
S, good definition. That girl ever call you back? You took breath mints, right?
Hi Sreekesh. Nice to meet you.
Since Doug didn't offer anything from Ambrose Bierce, I'll step on his toes with, "Don't steal. Thou'lt never thus compete successfully in business. Cheat."
Weird looking guy there. Wonder what his private "business" looks like?
Nice definition, although one must note it's easy for you to say.....you have two faces.
Business,n. What one tell friends one is taking care of when one does not want to go out with them. Always sounds impressive.
TLP, you lead beautifully.
Lula, Welcome! Best not to ask.
Alice, I bet especially with all the one you toss around. Throw in a we next time. That'll really take the starch out. Not that I'd know.
I usually just mind my own.
Business = Government today
Business, n. A type of modern organization, inspired by Robin Hood, which takes from its investors and gives to the senior employees.
Thank you for leaving personal comments off your blog.
In actual fact I took Tylenol, but I think I need something stronger.
That's why you're a good dog, Icy.
Dddragon, if only the converse were true too.
Andrew, and the senior employees, in turn, are inspired by Friar Tuck.
S, Tylenol's good for business.
Business, n. A sinister art that produces the airplanes, buses, and cars necessary to transport angry anti-globalists to the G8.
I'll go over read a poem or two.
His definition was good, and the mask gave it a good visual.
Nice, Actonbell. Thanks.
I love it, a4g. Good cynic! Good!
Thanks, Jamie Dawn. I agree.
Wow...is it Wednesday already? I just got done posting for Tuesday. Jesus.
Great definition, and another fine blog you've discovered, Doug. What? You meet us weirdos in REAL life? SCARY!
Gabriel, think of me as your Alarm Clock. Time to get up for the weekend.
It sure was, huh. Just let me know when you're in LA. Meet me at your house on Monterey.
Okay, when I come back to my native land, I'll look you up. But, um, I don't have a house on Monterey...
So, the Astros. Exciting! Go White Sox!
Yay for blogfriends.
Business-the day to day activities that enable the pursuit of more important things in life.
Man, that definition stinks. :( No firing synapses after two days off from my regular business dealings.
Go White Sox! Whattaya think, Aral. Houston = pitching, not catching? And apologies for missing the chronology. I thought you were a baby in South Pas. The whole TLP, Ynnarg and the law incident.
It's not bad, Masil, just lacks your usual cynicism. Crackheads eating of your trash just has you a little conservative right now, I guess.
