Insightful and entertaining, Bambi, but probably most effective, at least in the shoe department, if you happen to be networking with someone like, say, Carrie Bradshaw from "Sex in the City". If you don't happen to be connecting with that niche you could always ask whether they've ordered their new iPad or if they've caught the latest episode of "The Office." (Is the last a bit too much of a U.S.-based observation? I'm never quite sure how far some of these pop phenomena reach.)

Hey, "The Office" works for me. And one of those rare shows where the American copy was better than the original (let's not mention the US version of our Aussie hit Kath & Kim, or the UK's Ab Fab).

You're right Shawn. We're human. We may be their for business purposes but damn if you want to engage folk...talking about your business probably isn't going to work. Starting with a pop reference works just as well at a live event as it does on Twitter, I think.
