Okay, it’s official, I have too much to do at work too.
I’ve made a concerted effort to cut down on the number of projects at home, but it seems that there is a cosmic force at work with the sole desire to see me have a mental breakdown.
So, how do I deal?
Step one, find some clever quotes:
- All paid jobs absorb and degrade the mind.
- Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC)
- One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one’s work is terribly important.
- Bertrand Russell (1872 – 1970)
- Hard work never killed anybody, but why take a chance?
- Edgar Bergen (1903 – 1978)
- Life grants nothing to us mortals without hard work.
- Horace (65 BC – 8 BC)
- I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
- Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826)
Step two, remember I’m going to Florida soon to sit on the beach and do nothing at all.
Bah! Whining is for four-year-olds. :p
Hey, cool, I could time share a Learjet from FlexJet for $4,600 a month! That’s pretty spendy, but much lower than I’d expect, so I decided to take a closer look at the ad in USA Today (America’s “I wouldn’t read it if it wasn’t for the Hotel giving it to me” newspaper).
INTRODUCING A REVOLUTION IN FRACTIONAL JET OWNERSHIP. For as little as $4,600 per month,*…
Okay, there’s the “*”, I knew there’d be a catch. What’s the extra damage? There’s a monthly management fee of $6,485 and an hourly rate of $1,760. I love it that their monthly fee has additional monthly fees.
You know guys, you could get many more customers if you just said:
INTRODUCING FREE FRACTIONAL JET OWNERSHIP. For nothing a month*…
I knew for sure I was in Redmond this morning when the local TV station’s weather forecast was “mild damp”. I suppose if you’re a weather forecaster up here you need to be able to say more than “hey, it’s going to rain.”
On a related note, there really might not be all that many Eskimo words for snow.
I finally got off by lazy butt and processed all my waiting picture a day pictures adding almost a month’s worth of pictures to the gallery (including a picture of a very thrilled commuter, hi Rob).
I still need to add descriptions… baby steps.
After a week of being on my own and mildly crazy, my beautiful wife is back to keep me company. She had fun with her friends but I’m glad she’s back. Yay!
