Like sand through the hourglass...
April 15, 2004

Have you ever felt like your life is like one of those teevee shows that’s only on for about an hour, but takes place over a few days? That’s how this week has been for me; I’ve been working OT and going to the gym or kung fu right from work, then from the gym/kung fu straight home to dinner and eventually bed. Available time has ceased to exist, and my life seems to be just passing me by like a white-tipped ocean wave.

To combat time from slipping even further away from me, I propose the following:

Days should now consist of at least 26 hours, if not more.
Work should be limited to a true 8 hours, including lunch, which everyone should get paid for.
Any OT done should be on “free time” which does not take place within the 26 hours of the day, but in an alternate reality.
All places of business that sell items to the public should stay open at least until 8pm on weeknights, later on weekends.
Half of the time spent sleeping will take place also in an alternate reality, sos that one gets at least 9 hours of sleep a night while only using 5 “real” hours.

So my wish list is long. Can you blame me? My house is a mess, sometimes I just plain can’t remember what I’m doing, and I’m all bloated and PMS-y and wanting to just drown my sorrows in a featherbed with 5 blankets atop me.

But all the joking aside here, folks…

My friend (Queen) Alisha will be performing karaoke at the Ranch Club tonight (that’s right, the one on Chinden in Garden City with the big horse on top) to win a car for her sister-in-law, whom she has been toting around for a while. Alisha has made it through the first round, and we all know she can make it through the last with flying colors. So, anyone that’s free tonight, come down and listen to Alisha, then scream as loud as you can for her so she can win the car for her sister-in-law so she doesn’t have to drive her ass around any more. Okay? Okay.

Here here. I want a MINIMUM of 9 hours of sleep per night and a MAXIMUM of 6 hours of work, four days per week.
