Welcome to Total Drama Island!

Ever feel like you're stuck in a really, really bad drama series?

Like, one in which the main characters are embroiled in a web of intrigue and vile character assassination over project review processes? In which, literally, dozens of highly emotional emails are exchanged in a single 24-hour period, over how to format a compliance document? In which supporting characters are reduced to tears over generating a purchase order for mailing tubes?

How about the one where the phone ominously rings and the other end of the conversation features an eight-year old in complete hysterics over a lost mitten? Or the one where the main character is greeted at 5:45 am by the discovery that her 125-pound dog has suffered a cataclysmic bout of intestinal distress overnight?

I had a 2-hour commute to work this morning, in a white-out snow storm. It was the most peaceful two hours of consciousness I have spent this week.

I think tonight will feature a hot bath and a glass of wine.

I'm thinking you've earned a night off, and then some. Enjoy!

plinch (v) - to skorp or padozzle rapidly, as during festivals and mail delivery.
