The Most Memorable Place I've Been




The most memorable place I've been (and not necessarily the nicest place) was New York City. I was road trippin with my brother and I had just got home from college so it was quite the adventure. We started by going to Atlanta to visit (and meet for the first time) some relatives. Then we drove east up to Trenton and eventually to New York.

I remember we went to see a movie and coming out of the theater a two o'clock in the morning. The streets were as busy if not busier than my hometown in the middle of the day. There was an energy you could feel along with a healthy dose of cautious trepidation. There has been no place to match it so far.

Friday Work Related Haiku

Dizzying Turmoil
pulled this way and that with  scores
of obligations.

Think outside the box  
while paradigms shift and they  
want to touch my base

A new exercise
we'll fishbone old ideas
to look like new ones

Meetings abound while
project deliverables
accumulated.

I have been busy and a lot of what I have been doing is waiting for others to get done and sitting in meetings.

Okay you might accuse me of kicking her when she's down but I thought this was funny. I suspect, given the mathematical improbability of Hillary pulling enough delegates to get the nomination, that she will drag it to the convention and apply "Clintonian" pressure on the super delegates.

Obama is playing the confidence game, basically ignoring her and gearing up to face McCain.  I wonder if the possibility exists of an Obama/Clinton ticket for the sake of the party.  If so, and they win in November, I'd double up on the bullet proof vests if I were Barack

Medical Haiku

A subject near to my abdomen:


Contrast dye I.V.
Pants mid thigh in whirling rig
Oh I hate Cat scans.

"Its perfectly safe"
she said through the loud speaker
from her shielded room.

My mind wonders why
a gigantic machine makes
me claustrophobic.

Well in case you haven't guessed I had to go to have a cat scan done this morning. This wasn't as bad as the MRI but I still consider it something to be avoided like the plague. They only needed pictures of my abdomen so I didn't have to squeeze everything through that little hole. Now I have to drink extra fluids to flush the contrast dye out of my system. As if the diuretics alone weren't causing me to rush to the can enough. Yeesh.
