The Itis

Definition: The general feeling of lethargy and well-being experienced after eating a satisfying meal. This phenomena is particularly triggered by foods high in carbohydrates and meats containing the amino acid tryptophan.

Monday morning started off on a high note! I woke up before my alarm clock (those rays of light streaming into my room at 5am will do it), i changed the music in the CD shuffle in my car - only so many times i can hear Destiny Child, T.I. and some other mixed CD i had thrown in there and work is sublime, lots of it and i am happy to get on with it.

The best thing about today is that it's someone's birthday in the office and tradition demands the said birthday recipient brings through a big ass cake for all of us to scoff to our hearts content*. While on my 3rd slice of sublime, chocolate cake with The Itis settling in, i silently concurred that Marie Antoinette had the right idea when she declared, "Give them cake!"**

Sadly all that sugar has worked against me and i am now plummetting from a sugar high...eish, i am contemplating sneaking away from my desk to catch 40 winks in the bathroom :-)

Weekend Download: This weekend was full of drama: some unecessary (nothing like someone's badly behaved ex-girlfriend crashing a party to hit some "The Boy is Mine" drama. Its not only SO unecessary, it's just plain sad!) and some unavoidable (keep safe on the roads, drive to stay alive!).

*This puts some pressure on me to find an even bigger and better cake in T-minus 29 days *hint hint*

** Okay, the girl lacked a certain amount of foresight or general common sense with that statement and she paid with her head, literally!

Niggeritis is not PC at all so urban slang users have shortened it to The Itus!

Lol, since when were YOU down with the PCness, lies and more lies!
