I looked at her pitchers and I must say dame fortune must be smiling on the Lords as this woman could well be
Victoria Cross. She could launch a thousand ships at an Invicta-esque midnight regatta. Cannot believe you know her in real life. No, I mean it. Pretty sure you're lying.
Just spitballing here, but I've been inspired by old memories of the glory that was the Minkster's tour beyond. Remember that awesomeness? The problem, as I see it, was that he tried to make his both mechanical and
tied to the movement (or engine
, as real experts say), which seems needlessly complicated. The purpose of the tour beyond movement, I'm given to understand by my watchmaker friend at the jewelry store at the mall (the one who complimented my Invicters) is to hold the attention of the viewer. I'm thinking about a revolutionary quartz
tour beyond, possibly even a remote tour beyond springing up on the side of the wartch like that monstrous orange thing I just saw, or perhaps the compass on a Luminox. A sort of mesmerizing spinning ball, that if made in a shiny color would no doubt hypnotize most geeks. Perhaps we could "go green" and make it solar powered as well. If it were shiny green instead of gold we could literally
go green. Not sure if this would confuse the rubes
valued customers or clarify for them.
I have an even more bold idea for VX (that's what the cool kids call it) but it should be, IMO, placed on the back burner until we're more established. I learnt this from my marketing classes about forty years ago, you start off with a simpler, easy to understand product, because people are basically stupid and simple, and then after you suck them in you go full-on awesome. Imagine, for example, how confused the local farmers would have been if Hank Ford tried to sell the GT 40 before he released the Model T.
My idea is to create a giant, shiny, remote quartz tour beyond where the huge bubbled plastic thing (or crysta
l, as the fat man on the teevee calls it) houses the tour beyond movement, which is really just a series of animated snow globes. The actual wartch part could be on the strap where you have to crane your elbow up to see it.
Anyway, cogitate on this and I think you'll agree that the college did not put me in charge of moving compost bins into the hallways for nothing. I am a bloody jeenyus.
