At this time.

I flew to Boston today on behalf of Corporate Behemoth. Tomorrow, I have to give a three-minute presentation and pretend to be a grown-up.

Oh, and I have a giant zit.

Heh heh heh.

I entertained myself on the plane by counting the number of times the stewards said "at this time." At this time, we ask you to please discontinue use of all portable electronics. At this time, you are free to move about the cabin.

But the best? At this time, please return to your seats at this time.

Heh heh heh.

Today, I also rented a car for the first time in my life. I know! Usually, whatever boyfriend rented whatever car. But today? Today, I rented a car and drove through the Big Dig. Alone. There was exactly one car for me to choose from - there, like an old friend, sat a Honda Accord. The car I drive every day. So while I was trying not to get lost, I didn't have to worry about how to turn on the windshield wipers. Right on.

I ordered room service and am feeling like I just invented fire because I finally figured out how to operate the thermostat.

So, really, life is good.

And the haikus? Fantastic!

Yeah, that's right. Enter to win a Fabulous Valentine's Day Gift Pack. The entries thus far are awesome. I think I just might have to feature a Valentine's Day haiku each day in the week leading up to the big day. This is art that demands to be shared.

If you can fly, I can fly. (not that you had a hard time flying or doing anything else, I'm just saying while I am on de plane, de plane, I will tell myself that one of my idols in the world flies with no qualms so I must do the same) and now, I will take note of "at this time" and that will help occupy my mind.

How cool that you are just a Tiger Lady (from Baby Boom - I think it is Tiger, was it Dragon?). Anyway, you know how to get things done! Yay for you!

Struggling with the haiku but working on it!

I wrote this haiku 10+ years ago, in a theatre class. I used to sit by the window and see the big, orange, Orange City water tower. It's about love, but this is not my official entry! :-)

Lovely, standing tall
In all its orange glory
Tower, I love you!
