1. Swamped at work. I have some 20-24 hours of work to do in the next 28 hours. Plus I have to hassle with year-end performance review. For someone who supports capitalism, I do poorly with corporate BS. I quit my last job when they started scheduling “diversity training.” There were other factors involved in my decision, but that was one consideration. I didn’t need the job that much. Light blogging this week.
2. Hugh Laurie, the actor who plays House, also played Bertie Wooster on the BBC Jeeves and Wooster series. Talk about range! Can you think of two characters less similar than House and Bertie Wooster?
3. What's worse, Britney Spears not wearing underpants in a dress or a radio morning show that talks about it for half an hour?
