the Deathly Hallows

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.
