We're too busy checking our BlackBerries, getting our political news from the Internet, and convening around the proverbial water cooler to discuss the hilarious hijinx of the celebrity of the day (did you hear the latest about Mickey Rooney?).
If you're like me, you have a list of things to do (some call it a "to do" list), but I'm constantly adding to the list ("adopt pet lemur") and rarely crossing anything off of it. I think I've had clothes at the dry cleaner since the first Cleveland administration.
Sure, it seems like a good idea. But with my luck, my virtual personal assistant will match my own inability to get errands done and will just end up sitting on my couch with me, watching "Weeds" on DVD.
But hopefully on his way over to my apartment, he'll pick up that lemur for me. I'm going to name him Thucydides.
