the Deathly Hallows

25 Jul
I’ve been quite ignorant about the Harry Potter 7th book, although I’ve bought and read the others before. And then, about 10 days prior to the release, I chatted briefly with Richard who mentioned he had ordered it and would receive it at 8 a.m. on the morning of the release. I started to consider I could order it on Amazon. I also meant to order the DVD of Young Frankenstein.

A couple days before the release, the book was available. It wasn’t an option to receive it on the Saturday morning. Nevermind, I was already happy it was available. I forgot to order the DVD, though.

So I’ve had the book a few days now. I won’t be as fast as a bunch of colleagues who have already devoured it ;)

The only person getting his work done by Friday is Robinson Crusoe

Pascale forwarded a joke which was titled “The only person getting his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe“.

Of the 20 signs “You Need a Really Long Vacation” and “You Are "Burned Out" Because of Work“, here’s my selection:

  • You refer to the tomatoes grown in your garden as deliverables.
  • You think a “half-day” means leaving at 5 o’clock.
  • You leave for a party and instinctively take your ID badge.
