Pour me a little w(h)ine...

Which I may well consume, quite soon.
So, like, my day-job puts me through what my boss euphemistically refers to as our "peak period" at the very tail end of February through the first week of March. I, rather more accurately, describe it as hell-on-earth for 7 days straight. Either way, I'm in it right now and very nearly forgot that I promise/threaten the world with regular blog posts on Mondays. (Perhaps, Dear Reader, you're wishing I had forgot. I understand.) Well, here's this week's Monday post, such as it is, being composed on Sunday night, from my orifice. Uh, I mean, I mean my office, of course.


Meanwhile, I thought I'd pimp the blog hop I'm co-hosting with David Macaulay of Brits in the USA. We call it The Big Reveal (Hop Within a Hop) and it will take place on March 21, so there's plenty of time to sign up for it. There is one prerequisite for this hop, though: it's open only to peeps participating in this year's...


Blogging From A to Z April Challenge! If you don't know what the A to Z challenge is about, click here.


OK, that's all I got for ya, folks. I will try, in any spare bits of time I may be able to find in the next few 12-hour workdays, to come up with something worthwhile for Thursday. (Today, BTW, was a 13-hour work day. Just sayin'.) Meanwhile, say a little prayer for me (or sacrifice a virgin goat, or something).

(Just kidding about that last bit. It doesn't have to be a virgin.)

  1. The peak period at my day job is October through Christmas. I always have a hard time keeping up with blog stuff then.

    Love the poem at the beginning. =)

    1. Thanks, JoJo. It's been 12 and 14-hour work days since Sunday and I'm managing 5 to 6 hours of sleep a night. I'm beat!

  7. I sacrificed some shrimp for you, along with mushrooms, brown rice pasta, and Alfredo sauce. It was delicious.

    And I have convinced myself that I can find the time for A-Z this year... 26 days of Pinterest experiments.... which is so not what my blog is about, but it allows me to do stupid experiments with the kids, shove ear buds up my nose and organize the house. So yeah, I'm documenting everything I do anyway. :)

  11. Hang in there with the job! Hey, have you ever watched Laura Dern in Enlightened (on HBO)? It is a very funny take on a horrible job situation. Funny wine/whine joke, BTW.
