The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

For the first time anywhere

I grumbled at some point that I'd never gotten a Victoria's Secret catalog in the mail, though I can't say I was horribly put out by this particular act of deprivation.

Inexplicably, one showed up yesterday in the mail, using a variation of the name I don't normally use for commerce — but have used for blog comments.

Or do they routinely address these to two initials, last name? I've never gotten one before now, so I'm not up on their procedures.

Maybe one of your fans signed you up for their mailing list? (Wasn't me.)

Imagine someone reading this site who would think that I might somehow benefit from photographs of scantily clad, incredibly bored young women.

On second thought, don't.

You caught that also? It has been years since I last saw one but even then they struck me as incredibly bored with the shots and just doing it for the paycheck. Then again how much interest can you drum up among females for modeling lingrie?

Of course, if I really want to see a bored woman, all I have to do is talk to her.

Charles, you are in receipt of a Victoria's Secret catalog, and all you can focus on is the address label? You really DO need to get out more.

This is why I go to the supermarket on Saturdays: the women, albeit overdressed compared to VS, actually seem focused on something, even if it's only vegetables.

(I live about one mile from an actual VS store; I have never been inside.)
