All Good Things (and some mediocre ones as well) Must Come to an End

One final haiku
To finish Two Thousand Eight:
Thank you for reading.

Yes. Thank BOTH of you for reading. Hahaha! With the closing of A Year in Haiku check with dullgloomy tomorrow for information on a new project (or two) for 2009.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Out of the Box

From long-closed boxes
Come odds and ends from the past --
Pale ghost memories.

There were a few rather amusing little tidbits, like cards and letters from old friends, random pictures from the walls of my teenaged room, and little cards and pictures made by kids who are now college aged (or older).

Save Your Intervention

I fell prey again
To an enormous book sale.
Hey, I'm not on crack!

If one is to be addicted to something, it may as well be books (and movies), right?

Bang Bang!

A goofy waiter
And a fun musical that
Starred a flying car.

That was my day.

Season Finale

As of this evening,
It's the end of an era
For a ten-year gig.

One of the places I work is closing up and relocating, and even though I plan to move with it, it still seems like a chapter coming to a close. It was great having a bunch of friends come and join me on that last shift.

Boxing Day

Hangin' out with kids
Was a fine diversion on
This year's Boxing Day.

Merry Happy

A nice quiet day
Spent with a few old people
With whom I share genes.

It was a pleasant, laid back Christmas day with the parents. Tomorrow will see the rest of the family join us before I head back home. Merry Christmas!
