Ev is having a BAD DAY AT WORK Someone take me out of my misery please. It's time to shuffle off this mortal coil! I'd jump out my 17th storey window but I can't .

Looks like someone needs a cocktail - or probably several....

Isa mixes up a very, very, very, very, very, very, very large batch of Cosmos to ease Ev's pain...

Trust me - throwing staplers at a plate glass window will not do the trick. Just tell them you need a "smoke break" (yes, I know you don't smoke but...) and then RUN AWAY!!!
Here's a little song for you (okay, it's long but you'll like it. Thank you Alan Jackson...):

The sun is hot and that old clock is movin' slow,
An' so am I.
Work day passes like molasses in wintertime,
But it's July.
I'm gettin' paid by the hour, an' older by the minute.
My boss just pushed me over the limit.
I'd like to call him somethin',
I think I'll just call it a day.

Pour me somethin' tall an' strong,
Make it a "Hurricane" before I go insane.
It's only half-past twelve but I don't care.
It's five o'clock somewhere.

Oh, this lunch break is gonna take all afternoon,
An' half the night.
Tomorrow mornin', I know there'll be hell to pay,
Hey, but that's all right.
I ain't had a day off now in over a year.
Our Jamaican vacation's gonna start right here.
Hit the 'phones for me,
You can tell 'em I just sailed away.

An' pour me somethin' tall an' strong,
Make it a "Hurricane" before I go insane.
It's only half-past twelve but I don't care.
It's five o'clock somewhere.

I could pay off my tab, pour myself in a cab,
An' be back to work before two.
At a moment like this, I can't help but wonder,
What would Jimmy Buffet do?

Funny you should ask that because I'd say:
Pour me somethin' tall an' strong,
Make it a "Hurricane" before I go insane.
It's only half-past twelve but I don't care.

Pour me somethin' tall an' strong,
Make it a "Hurricane" before I go insane.
It's only half-past twelve but I don't care.
He don't care.
I don't care.
It's five o'clock somewhere.

What time zone am on? What country am I in?
It doesn't matter, it's five o'clock somewhere.
It's always on five in Margaritaville, come to think of it.
Yeah, I heard that.
You been there haven't you.
Yessir.
I seen your boat there.
I've been to Margaritaville a few times.
All right, that's good.
Stumbled all the way back.
OK. Just wanna make sure you can keep it between the navigational beacons.
Bring the booze, I tell you.
All right. Well, it's five o'clock. Let's go somewhere.
I'm ready, crank it up.
Let's get out of here.
I'm gone.
Let's get out of here.

Ok Ev, it is time to get into the 'time machine like' box and move your *ss to Utrecht to enjoy great pubs and food as quick as possible.
After two days here you feel like a different person.
Otherwise: shoot your boss, it always helps for me

Tell me about it! People were wondering if I might not come back tomorrow. I am seriously tired of dealing with stupid people - ugh!

I'm with you Eve. I'm having a few shockers myself.

So whoever it is that shoots Eve, can you then please shoot me? Thanks

8. Posted by samsara_ (Travel Guru 5353 posts) 7y

Lol Thanks everyone, you cheered me up immensely yesterday. Isa, the song is great - now, if i could have heard in person it would have been even better :D

Stresssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

Anyway, i'm over it now. I love you all, thanks. Soupa, definitely another night in Fados is on the cards soon! The move to Philly is on the long finger btw....but I'll prob be down there soon for work, so we'll make a date. ;)

One of our clients has us work the weekend, promising up and down he would too so we could meet his impossible deadline to go to print, and then...

So I sympathize, totally. But don't jump out the window! You'll never get the thing open plus you'll spot an ice cream shop or a pizza place on the way down and think "Argh! Shoulda just had one of those!" So get a gellato if you can and things will look up--promise!

It's Friday and if anyone has had any bizarre things happen to them over the course of the week (or even if you haven't and just feel a bit inconsequential) then I believe that it's 5:00 somewhere and time for cocktails. To celebrate getting though another 200+ hours spent earning a living - and hopefully coming out mostly unscathed, minus a scrape or two - it's time to relax. The party will commence shortly on the TP Virtual Veranda. The bar has been stocked, the weather is warm, the view overlooks the beach and we'll enjoy our drinks as the sun sets over the water. (Hey, it's a virtual veranda.) Bring your troubles and your woes so they can be tossed out to sea for a couple of days. So, come one - come all to the "Friday - Fuck Yeah!!" (too harsh?) Festivities.

Just because I like it - here's a little ditty from Yakko's Universe (Animaniacs)

Everybody lives on a street in a city
Or a village or a town for what it's worth.
And they're all inside a country which is part of a continent
That sits upon a planet known as Earth.
And the Earth is a ball full of oceans and some mountains
Which is out there spinning silently in space.
And living on that Earth are the plants and the animals
And also the entire human race.

It's a great big universe
And we're all really puny
We're just tiny little specks
About the size of Mickey Rooney.
It's big and black and inky
And we are small and dinky
It's a big universe and we're not.

And we're part of a vast interplanetary system
Stretching seven hundred billion miles long.
With nine planets and a sun; we think the Earth's the only one
That has life on it, although we could be wrong.
Across the interstellar voids are a billion asteroids
Including meteors and Halley's Comet too.
And there's over fifty moons floating out there like balloons
In a panoramic trillion-mile view.

And still it's all a speck amid a hundred billion stars
In a galaxy we call the Milky Way.
It's sixty thousand trillion miles from one end to the other
And still that's just a fraction of the way.
'Cause there's a hundred billion galaxies that stretch across the sky
Filled with constellations, planets, moons and stars.
And still the universe extends to a place that never ends
Which is maybe just inside a little jar!

It's a great big universe
And we're all really puny
We're just tiny little specks
About the size of Mickey Rooney.

You might think that you're essential
Try inconsequential
It's a small world after all!

Enjoy the cocktails!!!!!
