THURSDAY THIRTEEN - 13 Reasons Why I Don't Want To Work Today

1. I work all the time, every day. I need a break.

2. I just in a pissy mood and everything is bugging me!

3. I believe I am the reincarnation of Maynard G Krebs (The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis) who's beatnik philosophy made him screech the word "work?"

4. I woke up with hot flashes at 3 a.m. and never got back to sleep.

5. It's finally cooling down here near Sedona and I want to go on a picnic.

6. I have 80 hours of stored programs on my DVD and need to watch them to clear some space for the start of the new Fall TV season.

7. I'm self employed and no one's forcing me to work today.

8. I'd rather paint my toenails and read a book.

9. I'm not inspired - as you can see from this Thursday Thirteen.

10. My right pinky finger hurts --- see? Owee! I had to type that "p" with my left hand!

11. The fresh sheets on my bed are calling to me.

12. Work is a four letter word and I promised to clean up my language.

13. It's too much work to think up another excuse for not working.

Oh, crap I just worked posting this blog!

  1. All sound like good reasons to me :)

  2. It's a good thing you have a cool boss who doesn't mind when you don't feel like working. Wow, 80 hours of stored programming to watch?! Do you have a plan for how you're going to do it?

  3. Great list. I posted a related one!


  4. LOL your post made me laugh. If I felt like you and was self-employed, I wouldn't work either. Blogging is fun, not work...right?!?!

  5. Debbie - I thought so too, lol!

    Malcolm - I thought I'd take Sunday off and watch at least 20 hours of them. The rest could probably be deleted because I recorded them just in case nothing else was on, lol.

    Grey Street - I read your post and it was related! I am officially adding some of your list to mine:
    I need a massage, a hot bath and a pedicure and would rather do all those than work!

    Bethany - Blogging should be fun but sometimes we get bullied into posting just to post - I even ranted about that issue on my blog, The Brat in the Hat recently!

    Thanks to you all for stopping by!
