Buying plane tickets is a costly venture these days and a bit like bungee jumping (based on this past week's headlines). But it's still faster than driving and, considering I'm headed both to NY and CO in the fall, it's a necessity.
The week was full of odd sayings, the choice ones include:
(When you can't say what you're thinking)
"Angels and ministers of cynicism defend us..."
(How to win friends and influence people)
"Walk in high heels and carry a big chocolate bar."
(For this I went to grad school)
"Why I can't I get my sheep centered?"
and finally, a preferred phrase for when Old English words just aren't permissible
"Holy Popsicle sticks Batman!"
