"Lean on me"

Thanks, you two. Now I've had that song running through my head, over and over.

On second thoughts, it maybe better than the pseudo Christmas carols!!!!

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Knackered. Yep, that's the word. I don't even have the energy for an exclamation point.

Well, I'm shrugging off the frustration from yesterday and even though I still don't have my car fixed, I feel more energeric today and more in the Spirit of the Season.

Everything will be done...slowly but surely.

The most knackered moment of the day by far, is ironically, at the beginning of my day when I drag myself out of the bed!
I even move around like a pig in a knackeryard! (knackeryard=slaughter house)

thanks for the brief etymology, yt and urm. never heard of that before.

i need to get on the dog and bone to my scot buds over a bullock and steer, so i can learn new dickie birds, easy peasy lemon squeezy.

i'm quite knackered myself. over the last month or so, i've worked 1 week of days, 2 weeks of midnights, 1 week of days, and i'm back on the midnight shift again. next week, back on days.
