Yeah. What he said.


"It was true that I didn't have much ambition, but there ought to be a place for people without ambition, I mean a better place than the one usually reserved.
"How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 6:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?"
-- Charles Bukowski - Factotum, 1975
You don't know how much I agree with this right now, Yolo. Thanks for sending it along.

With my ex getting half my pension in the divorce settlement, I'm going to work until one of us drops dead.
