There's a thought.
Ally McBeal, mugger.
Still, the idea of some wraith-like being trying to mug someone amuses me.
abomination. Don't get me started on that piece of shit.
See, this is where things get kind of amusing for me, since I don't really watch television, and have to rely upon what I overhear.
I've never heard of a show called 'Ally', but I've heard of 'Ally McBeal', so I figured you guys were talking about that.
Kind of gave me an amusing series of images.
I dunno, I'd prefer that to a well-lit Ally. Preferably with a bag over her head...
I *love* the lucid dreams. They are just as real as me sitting here tapping out a message on a keyboard right now.
The colors, smells, temperatures, everything, are all real. Makes one wonder at times... ...then the fricking alarm clock announces it's presence...
The real problem with sleep problems in the US is the corporate mindset. I'm all behind the SubGenius Foundation on that one.
I tend to just shut my eyes and pretend I'm thinking deep thoughts.
Or if our jobs were simply less stressful, overall.
There are many parts of my job which are stressful, yet I still enjoy.
Some forms of stress are okay, but when you don't have enough people to do the mountain of work that needs to be done in a short amount of time, that leads to negative stress. And with all the various mergers and such, a *lot* of stress seems to flow in this country.
I personally think that hi-tech companies should have a hammock room, so that people can take an hour after lunch to recharge their batteries, and be more effective in the afternoon.
especially in places that give you a nice heavy lunch (most Israeli hi-tech companies do)
Just envisioning some nice top-floor room with a skylight and nice, colorful Mexican net hammocks slung all around. Mmmmmyeahhhh.
At IBM (when I worked for Tivoli for about a year), we had a guy in the QA team who would take about 12-20 minutes for a 'siesta' (as he put it.. he was from central america).
They discovered it when the ceiling collapsed one day. :)
It figures that it wasn't a load-bearing ceiling.
