    I just had one, unless you mean a holiday where I get to work constantly for a month, its the weekends where I've been missing out on sleep

    Couple of days on my own in a quiet house normally do it for me. Pity that only seems to occur for 1 day every year.

    (I did fake a trip away last year for a few days and went and stayed in a hotel 3 miles from my house)

    I feel like that now (long commute) and offspring number 2 is due in only 5 weeks.

    I'm in for a whole world of sleep deprived pain.
    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    What I hate is waking up after a good solid 8 hours and still feeling like you've been up for 24.

    Earplugs and kip on the sofa. Seriously.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    On a Monday morning is the worse. That sense of doom for an impending week and the fact you're so knackered you know you're not giving 100%. Luckily 70% seems good enough for most clients.
