The fact is, i work in an office. So, generally with the flu, you're ill enough that productivity and mental arithmetic will present a challenge but not really ill enough to reach the required sympathy level to take a sick day. Oh, to work for the government, where sick leave can actually get taken without being in exchange for derision and guilt inducements from management. Where are these unwritten laws that dictate the very narrow parameters for acceptable sick days? Or do i just care too much?
As for the weekend, i know you are all eagerly awaiting the report from Friday night, but a gentleman does not kiss and tell but let me just say this, when a man takes a lady to the $6.50 Friday night special then chaperons her to Hungry Jacks and offers here any tasty morsel of her choosing (to the value of $10.00, reasonably!) and is not rewarded with some intimacy and affection then i say this, i believe that what the women of today are expecting must be beyond your humble narrator! A cultured Lothario such as myself should not be having to fulfill certain culinary and monetary outlays simply to win a lady's hand! But enough of such trifles.
This week in the fantasy football world things are looking up, at this stage we may be looking at 4 wins from four starts which would be a most prosperous outcome for our teams this week, and heaven knows a couple of them need a swift kick to the buttocks with their pantaloons removed!
The fillum the my lady friend and i attended entitled "Burn after reading" was an enjoyable film, guaranteed to keep you guessing as to the outcome. It was quite enjoyable to see Messrs. Pitt and Clooney playing characters not of the super-suave hero but actually squeamishly idiotic fools unaware of their own stupidity. Pitt's parody of the super fit, super retarded personal trainer had me in fits of laughter as there are many people i encounter on a weekly basis who i could attach to this person. Oh for the day when people cannot afford personal trainers, so that this pox on the face of humanity can join the unemployment line and get a real job where vanity is not a prerequisite. Ah, yes but back to the cinematic presentation, expect the unexpected and be prepared to use your brain to find the humour. If you thought 'Step Brothers' or 'Talledega Nights' was absolutely hilarious then perhaps you should go find a Pauly Shore marathon instead of seeing this darkly comedic gem.
Anyway readers, i thank you in advance for your many well wishes, influenza drugs, massages and pizzas, but i must get my rest in order to become one of full health to supply you with bite sized ramblings later in the week. Farewell.
