Good morning. On the, well received, 7:30AM into the City. The NFI is two.

It’s been awhile since my last post. My work duties have me driving to various locations and meetings, making blog posting about riding a train to work both superfluous and potentially dangerous.

Spring Break has arrived for the school districts in Western Suburbia. I am sure many of you are feeling its effects. Many regular riders have taken long weekends or whole weeks off from work, making themselves available via telecommute, and staying at home with vacationing young scholars. I don’t have this luxury now, but I hope to in the future.

Enough about me. Helen Hunt is here. The formerly named New Hire is tapping away madly at her iCrackerBot with her perfectly manicured nails. She’s sporting a natural gloss today – no colored nail polish. She is sitting right next to me. The graceful yet muscular fingers of her left hand are sporting her gorgeous engagement.

I took it upon myself to compliment her ring. She beamed! Been but a month and a half since she received and accepted the betrothal. Her perfect teeth gleamed, blinding the Chemistry Professor sitting opposite her in the jumpseat.

She is on a back and forth texting with her mom. The beau, who is her college sweetheart working at the Mrs. Fields in the Mall of the Americas while he submits his resume, is doing double shifts to pay off the ring and pay for the honeymoon. No, she is chatting away madly with her mom. Mom has already asked her to come home next weekend for Easter and so they can plan the big day! I hope I’m invited.

Sleeping Beauty is here. Our narcoleptic rider is unnaturally tanned. Either she’s been hitting the tanning salons pretty hard or she’s addicted to the Boehner Base Coat, a new line of spray-on skin tones guaranteed to allow you to blend in at coconut festivals or Central Ohio GOP rallies.

Ok. That’s it for now. Honorable mentions go out to Mme. Butterfly, Elizabeth Warren, Subash Chandra Bose, and Rosemary Clooney, who are all here and, except for one, are all armed.

Happy Monday. Safe Travels.
