Yankelovich Mushiness Index

We've all seen those pictures of Japanese street fashion: hipsters dressed in wild clothing...ducktails, Victorian outfits and various mashups. Two of them were at the Japantown Mall. The question is: are they locals or did they accompany Hello Kitty on her trip from Japan. I do hope I win the trip for two to Tokyo during this weekend's Cherry Blossom Festival.

A clarification about the terms "this weekend" vs. "next weekend". "This weekend" means the weekend coming up. "Next weekend" means the weekend after that. Wars have been fought over this.

That's why people in the Midwest and South usually say "this here weekend" to avoid any confusion. That was one of the concessions General Grant made to General Lee to end the Civil War and incorporate it into the Union approved lexicon.

Also, the term y'all as plural for "you" is something we yankees don't have.

This clarification is essential when making plans for brunch. Thank you.

As a gay man, brunch is the only thing I make plans for.
