You may think I’m lying, but today’s post has been affected by early morning travel plans.
Initially, if you had told me a year ago that on today’s date, that all my plans for the most amazing Friday post in the world would be affected by early morning travel plans I would probably first ask you if such travel plans were worth all the chaos. Would I be traveling to an exotic locale like Tahiti or Hawaii? Would I be traveling in first class accomodations? Would I be served caviar and waited on hand and food? If you had told me ten months ago that on today’s date all such things would not be a reality, yet today’s post would be affected by early morning travel plans, well, I probably would have said something to you like, “God-dangit, Sister Mae Woodley! Technology has sullied the world from here until the second coming!”
I probably wouldn’t know what such words would mean, but Sister Mae Woodley — wherever she may have been, would have looked up from her knitting and have had a laugh the likes of which Sisters Gertrude and Marilyn had never seen before.
But I digress.
I am winging by way to Chi-town today for a weekend filled with colored eggs, hard-boiled eggs, chocolate eggs, marzipan filled eggs, and organic brown eggs. I am sure it will also be filled with temperatures below 50 degrees, with a possibly chance of flurries, and if I’m lucky I might even get the opportunity to order a “Flurry” at one of many Dairy Queen locations.
Althought today’s post has been affected by early morning travel plans, you must know that “Words For Your Enjoyment” had almost become “Words For Poor’s Enjoyment” which would have been a list of things like caviar, first class air travel, electric-powered cardboard boxes with hot water, turkey dinners, sportscars, bank accounts filled with money, and warm comfortable shoes, but such a post was also affected by early morning travel plans, which is not within my control.
Some things that were not affected by early morning travel plans included my viewing of the Americanized version of The Office — on NBC last night. Since it was an exact (word for word) replica of the BBC pilot, I have to say that I was unimpressed. Even if Time Magazine and Newsweek are hailing it as the next best thing to early morning travel plans — I just didn’t find the lead of the show to be as weirdly-funny as the BBC’s lead. These things and these opinions are mine, and have also been affected by early morning travel plans.
In other news, Words For My Enjoyment is approaching a huge milestone of 200,000 hits in just over a years time which means one of three things:
1. You keep reloading this page over and over again, so stop it. 2. I keep reloading this page over and over again. 3. My parents keep reloading this page over and over again.
Either way, today’s early morning travel plans have not affected my enthusiasm in this matter and you should know that if I can figure out who the exact 200,000th visitor is — I’m giving them a coupon for a small bag of fries at McDonald’s.
Don’t ever say I didn’t do anything nice for ya’ all.
