Kelly's Kitten Haiku

Rob looks so puzzled
"Too tired? I should kill kittens?"
What the hell's THAT mean

Must not tell husband
of Cyburban addiction
I'd be so busted

I've actually used that line with my wife once. She said she was tired....I said not to worry about it....I'd just kill some kittens instead.

Her reply was priceless (she'd read the kitten threads)..."That's nice hon, I did that last night while you were at your planning board meeting." :)

She knows of my addiction, and has actually laughed along with some of our more twisted threads. :)

Still Grad Student Poor

Ah, ramen noodles -
cheap tepid broth that prevents
emaciation.

I was so naive
to think I'd do better as
a working planner.

I was better off
when I was an art major.
Just how sad is that?

Ok, to specify why i hated the landscap arch students: it really boils down to just one event, if we over look my rampant jealousy at their creativeness. There was an incidence that involved over-imbibing at a tailgate, me being dumped in the planner's lounge by my companions and the L.A.'s called the cops just because i crawled into and passed out on the floor of the women's bathroom. and this is the very abbreviated version of the story.

All LA students are NOT like that... Holding a B.LArch for U of A, I can tell you with absolute certainty that the guys in my class would have abused you while you were out cold, and never even think to call the cops.
