    Wow Mr. P time for a reality check (which of course Cathy is giving him). WORK through dinner? I thought he might be the only rational person left in the world, but he fell into Cathy’s BizarroWorld. Sigh. It was good to know you Mr. P.


    And it’s 4:05 a.m. and I’m awake. Why? I dunno. One of my mind running wild nights. I woke up around 3:30 with a song stuck in my head. Now it’s on a loop. Sigh. Okay, so here’s the news I talked about last night.


    Nothing personal lightenup but even you and KFG couldn’t make up a rumor this good. :-D Breaking news (well, it was last night) our Dr Billy and I went to a black tie affair last night. It was our first. What we didn’t know was that he was one of three to be honored for his medical research. He received a cool looking platinum microscope (full sized) set on a black onyx base. It’s for his work on DNA structures and non-surgical cancer cell treatments. He, of course, is much too humble to brag on himself so I get the honor. (RAH! Dr. Billy) What’s in his lab notes today will some day be everyday treatment. Miles to go, he says, with a nod to Robert Frost, a personal favorite of his.

    Thankfully, I’m not in a salaried job which requires missing meals, but I always have to be vigilant in putting my health first and not my job.

    “Who will work during working hours?” Very good question, Mr. Pinkley. One that will most likely never be answered. May the work force be with you.

    CONGRATULATIONS, Billy!!! That’s fantastic! As someone who lost a parent to cancer, I appreciate your hard work in fighting this devastating disease. You are selfless and inspiring, and I hope when you are famous that you don’t forget your Cathy friends… :-)

    Good morning, Aaron and Susan! Aaron, I hope you got that song out of your head and went back to sleep for a little bit.
    Hello to GsMom, Billy, KFG, gmforde, rgcviper,, hendelca, Mona and all the other Cathy nuts rolling around here today!

    Well, as someone who is self employed and has worked through countless breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, let me tell you—if you aren’t willing to do it, the client will find someone else who will. And then you will have all the time to worry about your health that you want. Of course, then you will be worrying about paying the bills, which also isn’t healthy!

    I’ve missed more meals than I can count (fires and/or EMS runs). That means eating at very odd hours sometimes. If I had a boss, or a client for that matter, who thought he/she was more important than me taking care of my diet and health, I’d find another job or another client. That’s poor planning and I’d be no slave to that crap. My hat’s off to those who need work badly enough to let a client be abusive. Is that mood/stress/heart attack/stroke worth it? Not for me. A 20 minute break from a job won’t kill anyone. Not taking it, and doing so again and again, will find a paramedic like me picking you up off the floor . . . or worse.


    lightenup I did go back to sleep around 4:30 and slept until 7:30. We’re off to shoot hoops for a while. Mom! I did find the Matthew Broderick Honda commercial on YouTube. Fantastic! :-D Billy will be around at some point tonight. Busy day ahead first.

    Congratulations to Dr. Billy! When I was working I gained more weight from being stressed out and having snacks way too handy. I would tell the boss not to make people work through meal breaks, unless he likes have to hear loudly growling stomachs. Then you have to deal with having food droppings all over the paperwork. lol

    p.s. In case anyone wants to know, the rumor that I was going to spread about Billy was that after a week of rational Cathy comics, Billy had a moment of weakness and um, had a “dalliance” with Cathy, which resulted in her getting pregnant. Irving found out and although he stayed with Cathy and is claiming the baby as his own, they were nervous about the scandal and thus cancelled the strip. Since the cancellation of the strip, little Catherine Billie has been born and is remarkably normal.

    To my last sentence, I should have added “…despite her maternal heritage” LOL!

    WOW!! Dr. Billy, CONGRATULATIONS!!! Being a doctor too I know how you feel, any chance I could borrow your microscope? j/k…..I’m really happy for you and good luck :D

    LOL…that’s pretty good :) Not sure if I could’ve thought of that on my own :)

    Do you know if Billy will be featured in a Medical Journal…if so which one? I’m SO happy for him, and you too Aaron, it must be an honour to know him and all the hard work he does :)

    @ KFG – I vote for you going into neurosurgery! That would be so cool! Although the kids would absolutely love you and your energy and sense of humor. Hmmm, hard decision…. :-)
