Cool

I thought that, since I haven't posted since Wednesday, I should give you an update about the exciting and important things that have been going on in my life.

But that wouldn't make for a very long post. In fact, it would look something like this:


The Exciting and Important Things That Have Been Going on in my Life

So instead, I'm going to tell you about my weekend. It began on Friday afternoon at around 2pm, when I finished work early. On Saturday Helena and I went shopping, had lunch at Burger King (not the one in town, since Helena doesn't like going to town, and they've probably still got the roads closed). She went home on Sunday.

Since then I've been chilling out. Not like this:

And unlike a lot of people on a Bank Holiday not like this:
(though chlling might be a good word to describe that kind of experience)

More like this:

I wandered down to the pub for a bit last night, picked up a donner kebab on the way home, and today breakfasted on coffee and croissant. Later I might have a look at yesterday's crossword from To Vima. I've only had one other attempt at a Greek crossword, and I've got a long way to go before I get anywhere near completing one.

There's nothing better than doing nothing. Or rather, having nothing to do. It'll be a shame to go back to work, but sadly professional layabouts don't earn enough to make it worth my while changing careers.

I hope you've all had a good weekend.

are you flaunting your coffee drinking abilities in my face??

Jean Knee said...

um, a donner kebab doesn't have human meat on it does it?

Jean Knee:

I forgot all about your coffee ban. Otherwise, I'd have gone into more detail.

This kebab was lamb. Or so they said.

Αστείος. Τίποτα δεν γίνεται εδώ. Hope you had a great long bank holiday weekend.

I've been off since Thursday, and have been doing next to nothing. I've spent a good amount of time killing zombies. Tuesday is amost here, back to the grind!

Kat:

Absolutely. Συμφονώ απολύτως...

Dan:

Did it not occur to you to use a small amount of that time writing a new blog post?

This professional layabout, soon to be ex-pro, says enjoy it when you can ;-)

I am back at the office and zonked out! I can barely lift my fingers to type. I wish Andy would hurry up and win the Lotto (that he never plays).

Chris:

This enthusiastic amateur says thanks for the advice...

Bee:

It sounds like you needed to get back to work to get some rest ;-)

I thought Donner was a reindeer? You sure that wasn't a Rudolph kebab?

(I deleted the last post because I misspelled reindeer. Can't have that!)

Jean Knee said...

you also misspelled Donder

Rhonda:

I've no idea what reindeer tastes like, but there aren't many round these parts, so I'm more inclined to believe it was lamb.

Rhonda! you're supposed to call me an asswipe or something
