There are few things in life as satisfying as going to a good restaurant and ordering something that is just as delicious as you had hoped. That happened to me tonight, as I ordered a special of perfectly-seasoned salmon on a bed of roasted potatoes and spinach and topped with a bit of crabmeat and sweet corn. I enjoyed this with a flight of red wines including a lovely pinot noir (my personal favorite) and a sassy zinfandel. Probably the best part of all this was sharing it with a joyful-if-tired little boy, who mostly ate the bread from the bread basket and flirted with the wait staff. 

My poetry mentor from my undergraduate institution, Muser, has submitted the first entry into this week's pantoum challenge. I am honored. Check it out here.

Haiku News

Charges will be filed
against balloon boy's daddy;
was it all a hoax?

All-male college bans
wearing dresses on campus;
saves on dry-cleaning.

Bad costume alert:
"Illegal alien" suit
raises a ruckus.

Nothing I could haiku about the "balloon boy" incident could possibly equal this: Icarus, Daedalus, Falcon, and Richard Heene, by The Digital Cuttlefish
