What the comp?—Your Girlfriend is Ugly

it's always so refreshing to meet people outside The Industry. i mean, usually they're doing something a little more worthwhile than trying to sell stuff, but that's beside the point. really, it's just nice not to talk business and throw jargon around all the time. i recently met someone who gets lost when i start talking about design and tech, and i love it! here i am blathering on about usability and she's like, uhhhh what's an app? hah. it's so cool.
anyway, this post doesn't have too much of a point. i was just reading a guilty pleasure of a blog called Your Girlfriend is Ugly. it's witty, sarcastic and generally just makes me laugh for a minute before getting back to the task at hand. well, the author recently wrote a post about comps that made me laugh, mainly because i just finished describing to my friend what a "comp" is. you can read the entry here if you desire. while it may not be her absolute funniest (in my opinion), i certainly appreciated it. but really, she's funny. i've been known to procrastinate way too long on her blog.

Thanks for the shout out. And yes. No one knows what the hell comps are.
