Back to school.

Just recently, I came to the alarming realisation that my brain was turning into mush.  And, to try to rectify that, I thought I really should take a class at Napa Valley College to whip my atrophying grey matter into shape. So, tout de suite, I enrolled myself in a wine marketing course.  The first session was held this evening.
Not having the slightest idea about anything to do with marketing, I had no notion of quite what to expect from an entire semester dedicated to this particular subject matter.  (But I knew I wanted to learn.)  The first class was a very interesting, fast-paced, statistic-filled introduction - by instructor Paul Wagner - to all things marketing, not just wine marketing. Fun. My brain was so stimulated when I got home that I needed to have a cup of tea, watch a bit of telly and write this post to decompress.  I'm looking forward to next week.

Sounds like the fetal position to me, but "those not being born are those that are dying!" Something like that!

NHW: No, it's going to be a good class, 'better the devil you know' and all that.

Tomasso: What is all this nonsense? Bob Dylan and Star Wars references (tee, hee!). Too much pop culture - I just want to exercise my brain.

Thud: When I have exercised my brain I will be able to come up with a snappy retort to your barb.
