I made this back in January while on painkillers. Looking at it now, its more coherent than I thought it was back when I posted it for Chrono180. Yeah. it goes by REAL fast, but it does go from point A to point B in a straight line. I wish I could've had a bit more room to put in how the hell he got into a dressing room, but I would hope that most people would read that any "Asian mall store" with a perfume counter would probably have a women's clothing department.
Just looking at it again, I now realize WHY people didn't get the connection I was trying to imply between the Haiku perfume and the final "zinger' at the end. URRGGHH, apparently I can't count when I'm buzzing on pain meds. I had too many syllables in the 1st line for people to properly read it as a friggin' haiku! Eessh! Yes, I know its corrected NOW because I am posting a corrected version.
I will update this section as needed throughout the weekend as little thoughts pop into my head. I might make this a standard weekend thing if it works out well. Keep checking back in here!
Congrats to Caitlyn-Masked on getting the initials RN after her name. I KNEW she could do it.
Welcome to all of the new people that have joined here recently. I think this MIGHT have been the biggest week for newbies with ummm 5 people joining I think!
If you HAVEN'T JOINED yet ... why not?
Realfield joins the list of captioners leaving our community for a bright hew future! We'll miss you BUT I am so glad that you got to leave on your terms and I hope you have a wonderful life ahead!
YES, I probably stole this style of writing from Larry King!
Today is the last day for submissions for the Haven Quarterly Issue IV. I believe we are over 110 pages right now. It is going to be a humongous issue jammed packed with stories, articles and LOTS of TG captions. I'll have more to say about it in a week or two when it'll be available.
ALECTRA made it out of her first year of college, which I assume means she'll be cranking out a bunch of captions she's probably owed for awhile now!
If you have a trading folder at Rachel's Haven and haven't made a trade caption in awhile, THIS is the best time to make some new ones. We will be doing another housecleaning in 2 weeks or so and moving inactive people from the main folders. Its also a good time if you are INACTIVE to make some captions and get out of caption debt. I LOVE moving people back up to the active area!
A HAIKU in English is pretty much a 'poem' set up in 3 lines .. the first contains 5 syllables, the second has 7 syllables, and then the last line uses 5 syllables .. which is the correct way to do it in the above caption!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: Be truthful, did you see the connection between the name of the perfume "Haiku" and how her quote was phrased? If so, was it too subtle, or was the lack of a large amount of text make you think it was just a breezy little caption? If you want to comment on any of the little Dee-briefings, or give me something to post there, the comment section is right below!
