Of COURSE It's a Competition!

While driving down the mountain late last night I did the math and figured that I had worked 76 hours this week.

I was disappointed.  I didn't win for working the most, nor did I win for being the most healthy.  Each of the good habits I'd built up over the past few months (cooking my own meals instead of getting take-out, actually eating breakfast and lunch during the work week, exercising every day) disappeared as the work demands rose.  On top of that, I have a cold that hit while at the hotel Friday night and a vicious double-cold-sore that erupted at the meet Saturday.  I am not healthy, nor do I win the dedication-to-the-job award.

    I thought FTL meant "faster than light" and was excited by the prospect of seeing a French llama jump through space chased by (or chasing?) Cylons. JJD

    Also, FWIW, 76 hours is significant by any standards. And if you factor in difference in salary, then you win for the short end of the stick. I hope you feel better. JJD
