Back broke, leisure earned, thank you

It was the Beatles that aptly sang the line about a man having to break his back to earn his day of leisure and after my recent run of one day off work since Easter (1982), I can identify fully. They were also kind enough to write "I'm so tired, I haven't slept a wink, I'm so tired, my mind is on the blink," and "It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog."

I'd like to thank the Beatles for soundtracking the last fortnight of my life.

There are other Beatles lyrics, of course, that have never struck the same chord, such as "I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob." Tommy was our eggman when I was a child, but I never noticed a walrus or anything.

Anyway, even if I was pulled in twenty different directions of late, the internet didn't fall apart without me, which is a good thing because if they made me fix it I wouldn't know where to start.

This short missive (by my verbose standards at any rate) is just to let you know I haven't been trapped down a mine shaft and am not waiting for Skippy the Bush Kangaroo to come and save me or anything. But I guess anyone reading this regularly is used to my mysterious disappearances for weeks at a time.

Anyway, groannnnn, I have to get back to work. Working through till Sunday evening and then a whole week off. Well earned and all.

Toodley pip now!

Ah bless, but you really shouldn't. I could never stop blogging, if I did, some other poor bastard in real life would have to listen to me instead.

Just as well you're not relying on Skippy the Kangaroo . .he's dead! At least you won't have missed much on Hyman Way!

Kath Lockett said...

Baino's right - Skippy IS dead - all 27 of them used for the TV series.....

I just thought you were trapped in sunny Cavan....

It's at times like this that you have to ask yourself if work is really worth the hassle when it clearly interfers with blogging escapades ;-)

The Giants will lean on rookie Andre Williams for at least Nike Air Max 90 one more week in New York's backfield.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reported Saturday that Rashad Jennings is not traveling with the team to Nike Free Run Seattle because of the knee injury that has shelved the veteran running back since Week 6. Officially listed as doubtful, Jennings' absence comes as no great suprise.

Also for Big Blue, defensive tackle wholesale jerseys shop Cullen Jenkins, cornerback Zack Bowman and pass rusher Mathias Kiwanuka are all questionable for Sunday's showdown with the Seahawks.

After showing tantalizing promise in the preseason, Williams has struggled of late in New York's backfield. The rookie hasn't topped four yards per carry in a game since Week 4 and spit out just 22 yards off Nike Roshe Run 12 attempts in Monday night's loss to the Colts. The Giants NFL Jerseys saw better production from second-year runner Michael Cox and the unkillable Peyton Hillis.

After throwing an outrageous 52 passes in the Indy defeat, new nike nfl jerseys Eli Manning is a candidate to take to the skies again if New York's running cheap sale jerseys game remains NFL Jerseys Store stuck in neutral against Seattle.
