That’s awkward: but about what I was expecting.
Where’s we’ve had some new recruits at work?
My hours have gone down.
OK: right now?
Only from thirty-five to thirty-three hours a week.
Which loses me some money.
On the other hand?
It get’s me a day off.
Think I’d’ve preferred the cash: it means I can start saving up.
Normally, I wouldn’t say this …
But I hope someone goes ill …
I’d appreciate the money!
But let’s move on, shall we?

“There’s one thing in baseball that always gets my goat and that’s the intentional pass. It isn’t fair to the batter. It isn’t fair to his club. It’s a raw deal for the fans and it isn’t baseball.”Babe Ruth, February 6, 1895 – August 16, 1948.
And this (very appropriate) tune …
Have a good day … !
* You know, Olga, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a David Mamet film! I’m going to have to do something about that, one of these days! As for Ninth Gate? I have to admit, I think it’s the only Polanski film I’ve seen. You’d THINK I’d’ve sat down with Rosemary’s Baby, by now!! (I keep meaning to watch Zardoz, too, but it always looks a bit … you know … odd.)
