Out of my aura

Arbeid rustig en zonder zorgen.

Wat vandaag niet gereed komt,

is voor de dag van morgen.

Houd uw rust in ere.

Alleen een dwaas werkt zich de


To work all day long just for


Mid turmoil and hurry and strife

Might make a pretty good living

But wouldn't make much of a life.

Sayings that should be on buttons

Well, this day was a total waste of make-up.

Make yourself at home! Clean my kitchen.

Who are these kids and why are they calling me Mom?

Do I look like a freaking people person?

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left.

I pretend to work. They pretend to pay me.

You! Off my planet!

I like cats, too. Let's exchange recipes.

Suburbia: where they tear out trees & then name streets after them.

I'm not your type. I'm not inflatable.

Back off! You're standing in my aura.

Don't worry. I forgot your name, too!

I just want revenge. Is that so wrong?

I'm not tense, just terribly, terribly alert.

Ambivalent? Well, yes and no.

The ten best things to say if you get caught sleeping at your desk:

They told me at the blood bank this might happen.

This is that 15-minute power nap they raved about in that time-management course you sent me to.

Whew! Guess I left the top off the White-Out. You probably got here just in time!

I was not sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and envisioning a new paradigm.

I was testing my keyboard for drool resistance.

I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve work-related stress. Are you discriminating toward people who practice Yoga?

Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out a solution to our biggest problem.

The coffee machine is broken.

Someone must have put decaf in the wrong pot.

... and in Jesus' name. Amen.
