my occasional musings on life, love, art, perfume ... what else is there?

Weekends Are Not Long Enough

Why did no one tell me work sucks up all your free time? Why? Why?!

And, for a photo of what Terror At Work really looks like (plus linkage to a great article on the current state of perfume criticism PLUS her famous "Rock the Gloss" feature), please visit Blogdorf Goodman !!

Oh. So sorry. Hey, Mirelle, sorry to tell you, but work sucks up all your time!
Better late than never, right?

I don't know! It sucks that it sucks it up! GAH!

However, I am so glad you have a smidge of time left to post pics of the Charles. There really should be more Nick and Nora moments in everyone's life.

However, I'm sure Asta can't hold a candle to Bucky personality-wise, heh.

You have to discover this kind of thing for yourself. LOL!

There's another problem with work: when you're working you have plenty of money (well, some people do) but no time; when you're not working you have plenty of time but no money. :-(

You didn't get the memo? It's on page 117 of the employee manual.

Asta will make it better.

How I love the Charleses.

Now, about this "work" thing. The best you can hope for is work that doesn't suck up all your time AND all your will to live. Remember.

I worked with someone once who used to come in about an hour and a half late at least two mornings a week. Her explanation was that 'I needed to do shopping and pay some bills and phone people. I have a life to organise, you know.' Only thing was, she worked a 3-day week anyway, and she used to say it to us five-dayers. Speechless, we were.

They've just changed the rules for retirement in the UK and it means someone of my age will only be 'allowed' to retire (i.e. start getting a state pension) when I'm 67. Instead of 60, for women. Depressing or what!

Then there's happy hour, though. And a nice dog *pant, pant*
