Work, Work, Work

So for most of this weekend I'll be editing a new book about Javascript.

Well, part of the time I'll be editing a new book about Javascript; the rest of the time I can be found slumped over and sleeping on this book, because the topic is just downright b-o-r-i-n-g.

If I don't make it back here by tomorrow, assume I'm dead from having to read such boring material, and notify the authorities and perhaps my family. Nah, never mind, don't even bother. Just let me enjoy the permanent slumber in front of my computer.

I have to get off: the very under-worked and overpaid cleaning crew are about to arrive and I need to go clean before they get here.

Have a great day everyone! Perhaps I'll see you later at Doctor Mom's Cul-de-Sac BBQ. I wrote the guest post for her--go check it out!

Thank you for your post! It is up and waiting for all to enjoy.

Please do stop by for a visit and enjoy a good old-fashioned Cul-de-Sac BBQ in Zed's honor!

Zed, when you're rested, we'll save the guest of honor chair for you!

Do you prefer a regular lawn chair or reclining lawn chair?

Reclining lawn chair sounds great. I might need to take a nap after reading this extremely boring book.

I'll be by later, Doctor Mom! Please save some food for me.

Mel, doesn't everyone? This place is in tip-top shape by the time they get here! OR they'll make fun of me. :) God, I hate when that happens!

And don't think they haven't--very clever, those cleaning people. Very clever.

Oh, and Mel, I went to your site and I'll tell you this. Beauty purchase errors are the only acceptable kind. Please let us know if the Avon product works--I'll be so there. :)

JavaScript is the principle food of the population of Java. The script is meat based with banana extract added for flavor. Occasionally worms are added to enhance the chew factor. It is served in large pots, which have two spouts so that loving couples can indulge concurrently. These large pots are called Virtual Servers. It has been imported into the USA previously but the recipe was stolen by Microheinz who passed it off as their own.
If not cooked properly, it can leave the host in a mess.
It tends to be eaten by artists, lawyers, ladyboys and lapdancers.

It is best consumed whilst wearing a cowboy outfit and stroking a cat, or twin cats if you have a pair.

LMAO! I laughed so hard at the part where you said we should assume you're dead for having to read boring material!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Sounds like a great book to me, but then, I'm a geek.

Worms...mmm, yum!

But how could you possibly have known I was wearing a black cowboy hat and stroking my twin cats Frankie & Johnny while editing?

It's uncanny I tell you! Simply uncanny, sans.

Will you take a picture of yourself eating worms wearing a cowboy outfit and stroking a cat or two and email me a copy, please?

Thank you for considering!

You clean before the cleaning people come? Seriously? What do they do if your house is already clean?

I thought about asking for a maid for christmas from the in-laws, but if I have to clean before she comes, what is the point?

Hi mrs. nobody,
They are here for a limited time: 3 people for 1 hour each = 3 hours of work. So in that time I want them to do the work I don't want to do.

The type of cleaning I do is more "picking up"--I don't want them wasting their time folding the towels, or putting away laundry, or making the bed. I can do that. I really really, really want them to do the tough cleaning, like getting on their hands and knees to wash the floors, or cleaning the toilets, or scrubbing the sinks. And I hate vacuuming--they do that and dusting. They clean the windows (yea!) and climb under my desk to pick up stuff that's fallen under there. And the best thing is they climb up on chairs to clean the cabinets that are way too high for me.

Get cleaners, mrs. nobody--you'll never look back. You've got to trust me on this. Yes, great Christmas present!! :)

I would like to get a cleaning person just to do all the vacuuming and dusting. With two cats, and you can attest to this sis, it's always hairy and dusty at my house.

stupid stuff like baseboards, lamps, vents, etc. I can't take it....
