Live To Sleep Another Day

My wife called it stupid busy...since we're all about the competition here in Cactus-Fish Land, I'll up the ante and say that I've been rediculously idiotically run-Forrest-run insane-in-the-membrane busy. In the last week or so, I've worked myself into a situation in which I have 20 hours of comp time and no possibility of taking it. Were you to have a magical camera that beamed you images of the Cactus-Fish household (you don't, do you?), I'd predict you'd see two very comatose people lying on a couch, or any available flat surface, having some approximation of the following conversation:

Me: I'm tired.
Her: Me too.
Me: Bloo blee mwahabbala gaga.
Her: You're not speaking English anymore.
Me: I know. Too. Much. Effort.
Her: Ganawana kleshto moopy-doop.
Me: Exactly.

So, be thankful that you don't have a courtside view of that.

While that's certainly not English, it does have a remarkable resemblance to baby talk. Now, since I am not fluent in baby talk I can't translate for you but I sure do hope that it wasn't anything bad. The baby might get the wrong idea and not want to come out. I'm thinking that may not be a very good thing.

LOL - that sounds like our household lately...

Sounds oh so familiar. The Boy and I just put in DVD after DVD last night, doing work.

The Cactus-Fish household is a lot like the Silver Girl and Guy household...at least when Guy is not hopped up on Red Bull and Girl is laying there going leave me alone. lol

I hate untakeable comp time (is that a word?)
Here's hoping for a better day tomorrow.

That is almost verbatim the same as Chez Quilty! It's contagious, I'm afraid!

I do hope you have a better day tomorrow!

I'm picturing the two of you sitting side by side drooling out of the sides or your mouth, and I can't stop laughing heee!!!

well, if it's of any consolation, i've been sick with bronchitis/strep throat/ear infection/fever for the past week and have -384792% energy. yes, a negative percent of energy. i think i'm finally on the up side of it all, but i'm still exhausted.

i hope things calm down in your neck of the woods shortly!

Nobody expresses incoherence better ;)

Oh, and by the way, because I am just slightly OCD, Beth said "stupidly busy".

Sounds like some of the weekends at our house!
Just think - it's Wednesday and you're one more day closer to the weekend.
