An Analogy to Start Your Weekend Right

Some of you know what the pelican in this video is going through, as you’ve undoubtedly downed one of more glasses of pigeon Kool-aid. Ponder that thought for awhile, because today you’ll be without me. Lots of to-dos to do. Check back for SpyWriter’s posts throughout the day. I may be able to squeeze a few in later, but I’m planning a trip to Pazza Notte for some martinis. I guess I’ve been watching too much MadMen lately &#151 cuz’ all I can think about is smoking Lucky Strikes, tipping back scotch, and (hopefully) finding a martini lunch spot. Shouldn’t be tough &#151 this is New York.
