Actually, no. I just had quite a long one and ought to be getting to work.

TPBM can have my break time. What will you do with it?
When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

Can I simply add it to the end of my day? I need about 20 hours of awake time to do all the things I need to during my day. Which is why I love the Playa: it's my two week vacation. That I work.

Damn...

No not often maybe a beer. But when I drink alone I prefer to be by myself (GT) :wink:

No more cold, misty rains, please. Everybody hear already has a headcold/sinus infection/relatively minor but completely misery-inducing illness.

TPBM lives south of the equator.

Sorry to disappoint. However my "day" loosely follows the time-zone of an area south of the equator, and on the other side of the world.

Everyone knows that June is "Prickly Pride" month. I get that.
March is "Pickly Pride" month. Once you are a pickled, you can't be a cucumber again.
