Public Service Announcement

If you ever happen to tape your eyes closed, try and remember to remove the tape before you fall asleep. Otherwise if you wake up groggy you might get all freaked out because you can’t see.

Or you might be freaked out because there’s something on your face sucking out your eyeballs.

Then some kinds of tape leave a sticky residue even after the tape is gone, which makes it wierd all day long every time you blink.

No need to thank me. Just pay it forward.

Back to the Grind

Having the statutory holidays falling on a Friday, then a Monday, then a Friday, led to some wonderfully long weekends. I’m pretty sure we’re in for the almost same thing again next year, with a Friday, Monday, Monday arrangement.

While I know that retail was probably crazy-busy last week, it was rather quiet and peaceful at my office last week – we all came in but not much happened, so it was like half-days. Yeah – four day weekend, three quiet days, then a three day weekend.

I could get used to that. Sigh.

Then pow, today it’s back to normal. Full days, full weeks, things going on, busy busy. Month-end, year-end, stuff to do, the fun never ends.
