You know, grateful as I am for this job, which keeps me out of the poorhouse and off the streets while I'm looking for Real Work, I can't help but look back with occasional fondness on the days when, yes, I was unemployed, but also got to get up later than 6:30 am and had enough TIME to do all the things I wanted/needed to do. Alas! For the good old days!
Well, ok, maybe not. Those weekly checks really do make me do the dance of joy. But...ack! I have so much to do and SO LITTLE TIME in which to do it. So...who's going to invent a time-freezing machine for me before 1:00 tomorrow?
