Lame Excuses

Someone needs to tell the Dark Uberlord that Monday morning means you ease into the week slowly and gently with much nurturing and care. You don’t show up and dump three months worth of crapola on my desk and want all of it now. Not if you value your life and the use of your limbs.

Anyway, while I snarl, complain and delve into this pile of paper madness, it’s my day over at the Mustache, so get your ass over there and help me slander the evil cosmos that is ’80s music. Yes I did go there. And you know I’m right.

    I’m thinking of calling in every Monday until they catch on…

  2. The Guv'ner Says:

    Haha, there was a time I seriously contemplated using my vacation days (I get 15 of them) every Monday till they ran out.:):) Then I remembered I could forget any trips I might want to take etc and that ended that fine plan. Damn!

  3. CDP Says:

    Plus, then Tuesday becomes the new Monday, and then where are you?

  4. The Guv'ner Says:

    Well then I’d need MORE vacation days, wouldn’t I?

    Until there are no weekdays LEFT.

    I like this “No Mondays” plan. I commented at the ‘stache. You ain’t gonna like it. But then, neither did I, Ms. 80s Hater. Neither did I.

    ah. just the ticket. Or, instead of the Dark Uberlord, you could get the parking company to try to fake their way into getting money out of you. Only they’re too stupid to realize that an invoice marked January 1st of this year, for parking validation tickets at last year’s prices, isn’t exactly the brightest move they could have made.

    Well done, miss. One day, when someone decides I’m employable, I may know of what you speak.

  9. The Guv'ner Says:

    Hopefully someone will be content to employ you for your giant scathing wit then they’ll be too afraid of you to expect anything as mundane as paperwork. They’ll be all “Feel free to work from home and use prostitutes and expense them on the company dime!”

  10. The Guv'ner Says:

    Gnugs: You’ve never seen our parking company. Dumb might be somewhere on the sign.

  11. Diane Mandy Says:

    Happy Monday…not.

  12. The Guv'ner Says:

    Diane: It’s getting happier the closer to 5pm it gets, however!

  13. BeckEye Says:

    I’m having a Manic Monday myself. I love the fact that I didn’t even get to start eating lunch until 3:30, and still every time I take a bite, someone has to come up to me and ask me about this proposal or that flight that they have to change for the 90th time.

  14. The Guv'ner Says:

    BECK: Yup, it’s some strange corporate LAW that says the second I get lunch there are 11 things that need to be done NOW. Effers. Don’t they get that food always comes before anything papery? I’ve had days like that myself when lunch has been on hold till late afternoon and by then every damn place is no longer serving. BAH!!

  15. minijonb Says:

    yeah, set the stun gun to 11 and blow the DU away… at least until hump day. we need something to read then!

  16. The Guv'ner Says:

    Jon: I’m not sure I like the words “DU” and “hump” in the same comment. It makes me feel dirty! πŸ™‚

    I too used to find Mondays horrendous, but in the last 6 weeks there has been a transformation! Due to that strike thing in the US (you know, the reason they’re not writing crappy US tv shows anymore) Australia ran out of tv to show SO THEY’VE BROUGHT BACK PAUL MCDERMOTT! I know you’re plotzing in your pants right now (and I so hope that’s the correct use of that term) with excitement πŸ˜‰

  18. The Guv'ner Says:

    I’m not sure I like the idea of “plotzing” (it sounds quite vulgar!) I am VERY EXCITED to hear that! Why can’t WE have Paul McDermott? Please capture him and send him over!

    We have nothing on TV either since the strike. The odd new episode here and there. I only watch about three shows so it doesn’t bother me too much.

    What’s my boyfriend Paul doing anyway?

  19. Dee Says:

    He’s doing a show called Good News Week – it was canned a few years back but they’ve brought it back because it was easier than thinking up anything new…

    Definitely not as good as DAAS but he’s still got the cheeky little grin that makes you want to pinch his – cheeks. Yes, cheeks will do πŸ˜‰

    I’m pretty sure they’ll can it again when tv is back, so he’ll be free and I can send him to you!

  20. The Guv'ner Says:

    Haha sounds good to me. I always wanted to see Good News Week when it was on first time. Maybe this time I’ll be able to download it!

  21. Dee Says:

    I hope this won’t take up precious blogging time though: I still need my semi-regular The Guv stories!!

  22. The Guv'ner Says:

    Haha, like I wouldn’t have time to WHINE ONLINE! πŸ™‚ TSH! Shame on you for thinking it!

    Thanks for the link!!!
