My keyboard makes a useless pillow

Good grief, I am shattered! If I was a zombie yesterday then today I'm... Too tired to think of something worse than a zombie today.

I did, however, against all odds manage to get everything done that I needed to do yesterday - finished the last bits and bobs of work on a client project, attended yet another Makro meeting, celebrated TSC's first 100% score on a test, wrote and submitted my longest assignment for my writing course and made it to bed just before midnight. Then up early this morning to listen to the Makro interview on John Robbie's show at 6.40.

I'm not thinking in a straight line though. I slept terribly last night, with dreams of my computer crashing and then of having my legs amuptated by a mad person with a chainsaw. Not fun. My subconscious is freaky.

I'm useless when I haven't had enough sleep and so far I've managed to forget my lunch at home, put the wrong phone number on a press release and send it out to the media (sooo professional), send emails with incorrect attachments and stare at the same sentence for 10 minutes without understanding it.

I think a night off is in order.

Right, have to go and see if I can find a stale rusk or two for lunch.

-100% - wow!
-I wonder what Dr. Freud's take would have been on the chainsaw...
-Order Lunch... I had a Mochacho's burrito with chips & extra mayo.

You need sleep! My head is stuffed with cotton wool today, (sinusitus), so I know how you feel

ps. they are opening a makro in the vaal as well, but it is between Sharpeville & Vanderbijlpark and I live in Vereeniging. I can see why you are upset though, I would have, had it been right next to me. In Vereeniging residents did not have any luck with preventing a Fruit & Veg City opening right next to their complex. Money talks.

Okay, you definitely need some shut-eye!

Do you have your own office with a door? Do what I do. At lunch. Shut the door, crawl under the desk and take a power nap. Seriously. I have a cushion on my chair "for back support".

Otherwise, try a Berocca. Better for you than those awful Red Bull things.

Definitely a night off. A huge sleepie.

I better not see you awake after 9pm tonight! That chainsaw thing was scary and I wasn't even sleeping! Hope you catch up soon with your overload and I bet you'll be glad when the Makro thing is resolved!!
