Attrition: A Haiku

Working far too hard
Life compressed to weekend days
Sad to drown on land.

That's right, it's Self-Pity Party Part 2!

1st one was no cake.

This one is worse - no malasadas, no saimin.

OK, the malasada/saimin reference is probably completely cryptic to an awful lot of people...what does that mean? Just that my parents have left Hawaii & on top of half my division leaving & general year-end close madness, I'm howlingly homesick - couldn't even get in a last trip before they left.

That's not to say I've given up on getting out there this year as I'd originally planned. Whether I can pull that off remains to be seen. But god, what I'd give for lunch at the Forty Niner in Aiea...
