Your long-term to-do list includes brokering world peace and ridding the planet of bad hair.

In the short term, you're lucky to get the oil changed in your car.

Lighten your load with help from Bumblebee Personal Assistants, the on-call, errand-running team that gets jobs done.

With a hankering for hosting and household management, queen bee Mary Pokluda tackles endeavors both big and small. She'll organize a dinner party for eight or wait for the cable guy, so you don't have to. She'll grocery shop, buy gifts (plus wrap and deliver them) and more. She once hired a pink gorilla to sing "Happy Birthday" to someone at Benihana.

Name the task, she can do it. If she can't (or isn't licensed for it), she'll find someone who's up to the gig.

Fees begin at a reasonable $30 per hour, and she responds to phone and e-mail requests with impressive speed.

Start checking 'em off, you busy bee.

Bumblebee Personal Assistants, $30 an hour with a 3 hour minimum.
