Blog Entry #12: FINALLY!

June 14, 2006 6:58 PM

Getting too busy to post these blogs.
Ok, so it wasn’t as easy as ABC…glad they’re in the poker game!

FARBisms

* POETIC JUSTICE:The UF will
slowly get done,
by the light of the summer sun,
how strong doesn’t
matter cause
I’ll see ya in
scatter, when
pricing will really
be fun!
*
PHRASES TO BE OUTLAWED:

  • Win/Win
  • Sounds like a plan
  • Spots and dots (what the heck are dots?)
  • This isn’t brain surgery
  • Think outside the box

Yo Pal,
Where do you expect to spend the 4th of July holiday? Fox moved the market, ABC is warming up and the Turner nets are doing great. Can I ask you a question? Where does NatGeo sit in the conga line? Inquiring minds wanna know. You sound busy and I won't be offended if you don't respond.
Warmest, although I admit I sound a bit chilly,
Marianne

Rich -- I continue to enjoy the blog enormously, but as to your poetry...what, no UF haiku?
