Did someone say Haiku?


Hot jasmine pearl tea
Bought at nine dollars an ounce
An expensive vice

Cried at work today
Eyes burn when I blink too much
Boss says he will fix

Death Cab for Cutie
Playing on my computer
Melancholy night

Looking for new work
What job would be the best fit?
Maybe one that pays?

Lock me in a room
Take away my day planner
Let me sleep for once

Have to make a joke
Pity Parties are no fun
Has John Badestow failed?

I neglect to write
Forgot my Blogger password
Then remembered it

I'm sorry I've been away so long.

Work has wound its roots tightly around my now constricted mind.

I'm planning an escape...

Tonight's escape was "Stick it", the teenie-bopper flick about gymnists. It was completely brainless and I loved every minute of vegetation I had. I asked no questions of the plot or casting. I just watched the happy moving, talking people. Teen movies! Horray!

My favorite Teen Movie is "Say Anything". Close, close second is "10 Things I Hate about You".

Brainless topic, right? Happy! Brainless! I'm loosing my mind! Fly down the slippery slope with me! That bad-ass slope is greased with all of the tears and subsequent snot that I have lost this week out of frustruation and misery. Misery!

So that all being said:

Yes, I will be writing again soon - hopefully something less self centered (not likely) and more coherient (likely).
Yes, I am planning an escape.
Yes, it will all be ok.

Thanks for checking in,
