Fists of irony
  • get up five minutes before the scheduled alarm
  • get dressed and packed in five minutes
  • be ready to go fifteen minutes before the scheduled pickup time
and still feel rushed and late?

Here's how: have your shared ride to the airport show up 30 minutes early and call up, and say "oh, here I am". That's what happened to boobirdsfly this morning.

Her ride was supposed to pick her up at 6:40a so they could go to the airport. At 6:12a, she called to say "I'm downstairs". Poor Boo was thrown into a bit of a tailspin -- she moved super fast; zero to packed and ready downstairs by 6:25, but she had to stop and remind herself not to panic, since her ride was early.

I was able to go back to sleep for a while, but then I got up, made some coffee, and have been running experiments all day.

i had no idea that "A Boy Named Sue", that Johnny Cash classic, was written by Shel Silverstein, of all people. And they share a Grammy for it!

An icon of my young adulthood (Cash) just met up with an icon of my childhood (Silverstein). Silverstein has apparently co-written with David Mamet, too!

Thanks to "American Routes."

Current Mood: pleased
