I had a great “unplugged” mini vacation (and birthday!) and actually feel recharged and remotivated!
If you can manage it on your next vacation, I highly recommend leaving all electronic doodads and things that buzz or beep completely off and put away. The freedom is astonishingly refreshing!
Unfortunately, things where I work caught rabies, rolled in gasoline, ate a ex-lax and frito sammich, and then lit a cigarette in front of a bipolar former nicotine addict on steroids fresh out of prison. In other words, things got ugly. I’ve got a lot of work to do this week to get things back to normal.
Oh, and for future reference, chocolate cake with extra thick chocolate frosting is totally acceptable at any time. Banana splits, too.
