Let me just say. . .

that I will profoundly grateful when this this week is over.

Someone once said hat life is like a roll of toilet paper— the farther into it you get, the faster it goes. Another take on the way we experience time is the old saying that time flies when you're having fun, which suggests that it slows down when you're not. So what happens when these two opposing laws of nature come into conflict? Near as I can tell, time stands still. I wish it wouldn't.

I would like to thank whoever invented the concept of the weekend.

That's what I tell myself when I get pinged at 4:45.

Every freaking day.

That's one reason I have a carpool. Aside from using the HOV lanes, it really helps to have the guys standing outside my office, waiting, when it's time to go home.

Wow. You're not only a writer and a smart aleck, but a goddess too. I'm impressed.

You didn't know the goddess part? Well, I suppose now you do. And don't forget that I'm Empress of the Northern Hemisphere too. I gave the Southern Hemisphere over to Gustavo (bondo_ba) a while back. The pressure was starting to weaken my powers of mind control.

Yes, I know. Very benevolent of me. We do what we must.

(((((Karen))))) The weekend is almost here, just hang on a little longer. Just a few hours more.

Keeping the loo roll analogy going, you also have to stop and soak things up along the way :)

Ha! Loo sounds so much less icky than toilet.
