  1. Although…if her breasts arrive an hour before the rest of her, is she technically late?

    Embarassing story time:

    When I was first out of collge I managed a retail store. One shift was 8-5. I thought, “Oh, sweet! I’ll miss morning traffic because it’s before the regular workday.” Boy was I pissed when I got stuck in a traffic jam every single day. To this day, I remember the look my co-manager gave me when I bitched: “Where are all these cars COMING FROM? Isn’t the regular work day 9-5??? Like the song???”

    In related news, I’m sad to say that a taxi-driver has never caused a huge accident after being distracted by my physique. After which, I would be forced to turn him into a country-western singer to win a bet. I bet we would have fallen in love. ::sigh::

  3. SeaKat I adore you.

    Except I have Rhinestone Cowboy in my head now and if it doesn’t go away soon I may be forced to murder someone.

    Where did the bipolar baby go?

    I actually *really* like Glen Campbell.

  7. I don’t have have Rhinestone Cowboy stuck in my head, although it appears you guys are trying really hard to make that happen! I am, however, sitting here singing “Tumble outta bed and stumble to the kitchen. Pour myself a cup of ambition. Yawn and stretch and try to come to life.” At least that’s what I think the words are…. *shakes her fist at Sar*

  8. Actually, back in the day, 9-5 was considered a full work day. People took a 1/2 hour lunch, so the work week was technically 37.5 hours. Obviously, that’s not the case any more for most of us.
