Signs that You Need a Vacation

Your accumulated vacation hours let you retire 10 years early.
The radiation from your monitor has burnt your shadow onto the wall
Wife has more and older children than you can account for.
You've gone from decaf to espresso to straight gin.
Wastebasket in your office is full of the ripped-off faces of people who came to you with a question or problem...
You get on the down elevator on floor six, push the sixth floor button and become irritated that you are not going anywhere.
Your kids call 911 and report a burglary when you come home at early one night (8pm). They didn't recognize you ...first time you have been home before their bedtime in months.
You look at the shows can't remember if it's AM or PM.
The janitor vacuums you in the evenings
The little leprechaun, that only you can see, who keeps telling you to, "Burn it, burn it all."
You spend too much time in front of the microwave before noticing it's not your TV.
You've begun to enjoy the elevator music.
Acne at age 43.
You begin to explore the possibility of setting up an I.V. drip of espresso.
What shall I do today? Pretend to work ...take a hostage ... pretend to work ...take a hostage ...
Road rage in the supermarket resulting in broken bones from the canned yams.
Whenever your boss asks how the project you've been working on 14 hours a day, 6 days a week, is coming along, you laugh uncontrollably for 3 minutes, then break into a medley of show tunes.
Tylenol stock takes a nasty drop every time you take a weekend off.
A growing need to DO something about the guy in the next cube. You know, the one that makes all those annoying sounds and smells. Yeah, something...something permanent. Yeah...
Spend day staring at the squirrels on the front lawn of the building. (There aren't any squirrels at your building. There's not even a lawn).

Blast from the Past


Todays Quote
Birthday Girl
Coretta Scott King

Freedom and justice cannot be parceled out in pieces to suit political convenience. I don't believe you can stand for freedom for one group of people and deny it to others.
Coretta Scott King

Hate is too great a burden to bear. It injures the hater more than it injures the hated.
Coretta Scott King

Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood.
Coretta Scott King

I believe all Americans who believe in freedom, tolerance and human rights have a responsibility to oppose bigotry and prejudice based on sexual orientation.
Coretta Scott King

I'm fulfilled in what I do. I never thought that a lot of money or fine clothes - the finer things of life - would make you happy. My concept of happiness is to be filled in a spiritual sense.
Coretta Scott King

If American women would increase their voting turnout by ten percent, I think we would see an end to all of the budget cuts in programs benefiting women and children.
Coretta Scott King

Mama and Daddy King represent the best in manhood and womanhood, the best in a marriage, the kind of people we are trying to become.
Coretta Scott King

Segregation was wrong when it was forced by white people, and I believe it is still wrong when it is requested by black people.
Coretta Scott King

Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation.
Coretta Scott King

There is a spirit and a need and a man at the beginning of every great human advance. Every one of these must be right for that particular moment of history, or nothing happens.
Coretta Scott King

= Women, if the soul of the nation is to be saved, I believe that you must become its soul.
