This thread must not die!
We all must beat it senseless

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.

that's not a haiku
i learned it in the third grade
back to school with you

Response 1: (Title = Skivving (sp?))
It also ends five
Hours earlier - unless I pretend
To work from home - heh!

Response 2: (Title = Confusion)
This mouse is a girl -
And she has the fluffy pink
Handcuffs to prove it

Response 3: (Title = See you Monday)
The weekend starts here
So get out the drinks and
The party - Woohoo!

There once was a man named Dan
Whose only talent was to plan
He was from Buffalo
But moved to Orlando
To work on the perfect tan

I wish! I'm still struggling to nurse my backyard, which got hit my some nasty chinch bugs late last year. The plugs are taking root, but the crabgrass is taking root faster. Argh!

No sunbathing by the pool until it looks like the tropical paradise it should be! :D

Haiku Schmaiku

The Ducati Rally at Grattan
begins today in the sun
see cute guys in leathers
and some chicks in kinky ones.

See exotic machines
listen to them roar
there they go down the straight-a-way
Look for wheelies at turn four!

I'm no pit tootsie thank you very much
and my old ride has been transformed
But still I watch and wait until it is my turn!

layoff's suck

i just heard the news
The city just layed me off
unemployed for now

:(

Peoria is about 5 million overbudget and those with the least senority in my department (me and another) had to go. Overall, that cuts the planning staff by 30%.

the city is also removing 75-85 jobs city wide

so anyone know of any positions for a planner/historic preservation/zoning/ etc guy?

(Mod note: followups in a new thread, please. Ouch :()
