Worfuse (Back-to-work Edition)

boldfacepalm (noun): boldface + facepalm = the act of placing one's hand over one's own face repeatedly (perhaps even using both hands) accompanied by intermittent somewhat audible sighs/moans/whimpers to communicate mainly through overtly melodramatic gestures a message of dismay abject misery most likely definitely related to being required to return to work after a significant period of holiday time-off.

What work?

What do you call what us poor slobs who had to work THROUGH the holidays do??? Oh yeah, bitch-n-blog!

I agree with A&G "What work?" lol!
(I'm sure this comment will bite me in the ass at some stage when I actually DO decide to get another job :)

And after the boldfacepalm comes the "crap-can't-button-pants" realization from all that holiday eating. Did I say eating? I meant PIG FESTS! Those grey flannel pj bottoms just aren't going to cut it for Monday morning meetings. Sigh.

Lsprite-I meant I'm pretending that work does not exist until the dusty alarm clock reminds me otherwise on Monday morning. I like the illusion. Your reality sounds good though. :)

@A&G Blissful denial is, well, blissful.
@vicki I apologize and thank you.
@alittlesprite Glad you can avoid Mondays for now.
@ColleenQ Oh I hear you. I'm hoping something miraculously fits tomorrow.

*giggle* Thanks for making me laugh tonight! I needed it!

Alittlesprite said...

I used to work all weekend, so I actually LOVED Mondays! LOL!

There is a flawed premise underlying this post. That is that work is bad. Actually there is no greater joy than returning to the majesty that is work. The proper expression should convey a desire in the future to never have another day off again, and to be kindly allowed to work longer hours this week in order to soothe the savage Gods.

As Orwell might have said:

Work is pleasure!

Is it normal to feel that way every Monday?

Missy said...

Artist and Geek said...

(Dbs-I think it's best to leave wordfuse in your expert hands.)

Laoch-FREEDOM IS SLAVERY?
