"Something tells me I shoulda stood in bed."

April 30, 2009 - Jennifer Brookens
An old Bugs Bunny cartoon in which that wascaly wabbit climbs out of his rabbit hole half-asleep one morning and somehow ends up on Mars comes to mind for me when I think of how this week has gone. The cartoon segment ends up with Bugs somehow crashed head-first into the ground saying, "Something tells me I shoulda stood in bed." (So, thanks to YouTube, I managed to track down the exact cartoon in question.)

You start out on a Monday, ready to do what you do, and it seems every weird cosmic force is aimed at your direction. People who you haven't thought of for months or years suddenly pop up, ready for battle. An error by Big Business strangles your day-to-day finances. Everyone is hitting the panic button over the swine/h1n1/North American / "sensationalist sounding name here" Flu. And let's not forget this Charlie Brown cloud that seems to be content hanging over Fairmont for the past 5 days.

But I'm still standing. Or at least I was, until I sprained my ankle just standing still this morning. Now that takes true skill or true stupidity. I'm not sure which category I fall into just yet.

Where is that fast-forward button to Memorial Day weekend, already?! Or at least let me find a Bugs Bunny marathon on one of the cartoon channels for the weekend with my leg propped up on a bunch of pillows.
