Would anyone like a small child? Usually The Board of Directors Here at Spo-Reflections communicates via email, but on special occasions they send a messenger for more important correspondences. These harbingers consist of gamines with large unblinking eyes and vacuous looks who say nothing at all but have the information written across their foreheads in magic marker. They never seem to leave; they are piling up. This one looks a bit menacing but he seems clean. They don’t eat much, in fact I’ve never seen them eat anything at all. Please consider adopting a few: they make unique status symbols, always good for supper invite.
The telegram from TBDHSR conveys auspicious news indeed. The Board (bless their nettlesome hearts) plans to round up The Muses, The Graces, The Fates, The Norns, The Furies, and The Skanks for a seminar on creative writing. Urs Truly could use such a lesson to improve his penmanship and prose. A vague but menacing pharmaceutical industry is willing to sponsor the conference. How on earth The Board is going to gather all these Goddess-energy Archetypes into the same room at the same time is beyond me. I notice they didn’t say ‘when’ this is to occur. Perhaps the waif’s forehead wasn’t large enough to put out the details.
I hope the seminar to be located in some far-off city, preferably a burg near blogger buddies so I may visit them after the conclusion of the conference. TBDHSR are particularly parsimonious but with pharm-funds perhaps I can get something swanky. I can’t imagine The Muses willing to stay in a Hotel 6** ; The Furies usually require a very large ballroom when they speak.* I am glad not to have to make the menu. I think the Graces are vegans while the Skanks prefer take out from KFC. In general, pharm rep lunches are more appetizing and preferable to the Nordic cuisine provided by The Board (if the Holiday parties are any indication).
I will try to keep you abreast of any updates, either through yahoo.com or otherwise.
*When The Furies speak, portals to alternative times and universes open up and create quite a draft. Last time they attended a medical conference they unwittingly released a large group of Phororhacos, who attacked several doctors, curiously only those with Macs. The conference was rescheduled.
**After all there are eight of them!
