UPDATE: Lisa Boothe, She's the Cat's Meow (The 2nd rev. ed.)


YET ANOTHER UPDATE 

I really don't understand why this post continues to be so popular. In its original form, it was nothing but a toss-off, one I figured was destined for instant oblivion.

Little did I know.

Since it continues to attract attention, I feel obligated to keep it current.

So I must announce that Lisa is no longer Senior Director at Black Rock Group.   In fact, she's in her second position since that gig.

[The original update begins with] Another resurgent post.

The "cat's meow" was used with a heavy, clanging sense of irony.

Merriam-Webster's citation files show that its first known use occurred in 1926.


And as for Lisa Boothe.

Well, as far as I can tell, she doesn't seem to be able to hold onto a job for very long.  (The 1st rev. ed.)

So in my own catty way, I'd like to dedicate this song to her.  (Oops, the video I shared in the 1st rev. ed.  "does not exist".  And, to tell the truth, I can't remember what the hell it was.  So let's refresh.)



Original (toss-off) post starts here.



Postscript:  And how did that go, Lisa?
