wired (and not bitter)

Yes, more terminal nerdom for me
You know you want to visit & go there.

This adorable & talented G. Xavier Robillard taught my Writing Workshop
for Teachers this morning; I'm smitten

LiveWire! darlings, Tyler and my secret boyfriend Sean

Another sexy shot just for Holly and me

British hottie who speaks & sings like a dream
...a naughty, naughty dream

Pretty sure he was saying something just to me
in secret code

Stabbing a cabbage; it's what edgy Portlanders do
(this was not about me at all)
The plaid cutie is genius poet, Derrick Brown
(He signed my poster! I love him 2nd best)
There was no Audience Haiku for me to lose tonight. I did, however, lose the Character Creation contest, to which I say F*CK.

Here is my submission so you may praise my effort and appreciate the immense thought I put into it:

Frances Theodora Dalloway, who is a florist / mental health counselor

I thought I was pretty effing brilliant in giving her the initials FTD (HA) and the last name Dalloway, which was a Virginia Woolf character who kept mentioning she had to pick up flowers for her party (thus florist) and as Ms. Woolf was mentally unstable, the character's secondary job is also supposed to be drolly amusing.

Clearly I am far too cerebral for this crowd. Whatever. I will not stoop to pandering. Until my secret boyfriend invites me out for drinks after the show.

So who did win?

Yes, would like to know other submissions (and winners, undeserved they may be) to get the gist of the word game.

I got the Mrs. Dalloway reference--does that make me a nerd?

Suzanne said...

What fun! Writing workshops and British hotties?? Darn, I missed it!

Stu said...

Hey, I tried to take you out for drinks...


Gretchen said...

Hey, who'd have known that brainy literary types were sexy too?

Maybe Stu knew.

Ooh, I just had a mistype there for a minute. Did you know Stu is one letter short of "stud"?

Coincidence, I'm sure.

JCK said...

Much too cerebral. Indeed. And your boyfriend? Looks like one of my old boyfriends. Many moons ago. An actor. :)

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

I'm guessing your character was above their heads, yep. Sorry you didn't win - it was pretty clever!

I have a cocktail and award to share with you though - so you did win SOMETHING. ;)

Come see me...

That Sean boy sure does remind me of another Secret Boyfriend of mine, Mikhail Baryshnikov. Maybe it's just the pouty lip for me!!

As for your haiku, I'm going with the Way Too Cerebral vote. Especially as I have yet to read Mrs. Dalloway, even though it's been on my bookshelves for years and years.

Now, take that Stu guy up on his offer for drinks, why don't ya?!

Thanks much for those Tyler shots. I'll be printing them out and pasting them on the wall of my secret room where I've constructed a shrine to him. Oops. Did I say that out loud?

Sean is great, but I'd have drinks with Stu if I were you. He's super cute, even if he didn't have a bit part in Twilight.
