Leslie's Omnibus


Windypundit picked up on a cool idea for a meme:

According to Cory Doctorow at Boing Boing, Maya Angelou once said

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he or she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I don't know if she really said that, but I thought it would make a nice blog post to explain how I'd handle those three things, so you folks can learn something about my character.

Here are my three:

Rainy Day

If it's warm, throw on some flip-flops and head out for a walk in the rain. Make sure to jump in every puddle I see.

If it's cold and rainy, I'll make a nice big pot of coffee, plop down on the couch and curl up with a good book... or three.

Lost Luggage

Since I pack notoriously lightly and carry my jewelry and toiletries in my carry-on bag, this really wouldn't be a big deal. If I got the stuff back, fine. If not, I'll take the cash and get new stuff. (I actually had a bag go missing getting off a cruise ship once... and it was shipped home via FedEx within 24 hours. I lead a charmed life sometimes!)

Tangle Xmas Tree Lights

I love a good puzzle. I'd pour myself a glass of Xmas cheer and have at it.

And you?

Coming to Chicago and planning on parking on the streets? Then Second City Cop wants you to know this.

Geeze! This used to be such a friendly city.

Nucking Futz!

I needed a cold shower after reading this story. Really.
