A day on leave


So I was on leave today. Did enough things I don’t normally do to realise that work – those eight to twelve hours spent at a desk typing or at meetings talking or reading or thinking – really does take up an enormous amount of our time. In turn, this got me inspired to do more with all the time I spend at work. (Wonder how long this will last :p)

Just listened to Slate’s most recent euphemism contest podcast. This one was for euphemisms for “death”, and I thought these were funny:

  • taking a dirt nap
  • lost his fight with entropy (cited by an Isaac Asimov fan)
  • leaving the sample (used by a political pollster to describe a respondent who will no longer be a respondent)
  • eat the grass by the root (French, apparently)

Really looking forward to the Sandy Lam concert on 9 Dec.
