OK for the record I have not fallen of the face of the earth, although I am pretty sure the numb feeling I am experiencing might slightly resemble what it would feel like to fall of the face of the earth. No I have been working my fingers to the proverbial bone. Yes last week I worked 65 hours and 13 of them were on Friday and 15 of them were on Saturday. And that was after working 48 hours the week before that. How do you spell exhaustion? PAT. There is a bright side to all of this and that name will be called a paycheck with 25 hours of overtime on it. And also it will all be over on Friday. So if I live that long, which is debatable I will be a free woman again, for several months.
Hopefully my family will still talk to me when this is over. Or maybe it will not be so bad if they just give me the silent treatment for ignoring their ridiculous demands for food, clean clothing, and transportation over the past month. We will see how long the recovery process will take, but I am pretty sure it will involve the fetal position and some rocking back and forth.
On a totally different topic, I heard this great joke at work the other day. I laughed out loud at this joke but maybe when you are sleep deprived and high on sugar it is funnier, here goes:
George Bush, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell.
While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for.
The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.
Putin asks to call Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he was finished the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a check.
Next Queen Elizabeth calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she was finished the devil informs her that cost is 6 million dollars, so Queen Elizabeth writes him a check.
Finally George Bush gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he was finished the devil informed him that there would be no charge for the call and feel free to call the USA anytime.
When Putin hears this he goes ballistic and asks the devil why Bush got to call the USA free.
The devil replied, "Since Obama became president of the U.S. the country has gone to hell, so naturally it's a local call."
