Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK? THE TALK TIME SPENT World Cup jollies. Have you had your invitation yet? 19 mins 54 secs ITV has started ringing the lucky few. Sorry, Wieden & Kennedy, but adland at large seems 2 hours 29 mins to think Fallon's "balls" commercial for Sony Bravia should have taken top honours at BTAA, not "impossible dream". B&Q's new marketing director, Jo Kenrick, must be 2 hours 7 mins on the speed dial of most London new-business directors' phones. There isn't an agency in town that doesn't think the business is about to review. Fernando Rodes' rise to glory at Havas.
