Masago, you are truly the master of minimalism. you just said in 3 lines what it took iggy pop to say in 36! ;-)

I'm bored

I'm the chairman of the bored,
I'm lengthenin' my log,
I'm livin' like a dog.

I'm bored.

I bore myself to sleep at night,
I bore myself in broad daylight,
'Cause I'm bored,
Just another slimey bore.

I'm free to bore my well-bought friends,
And spend my cash until the end,
'Cause I'm bored,
I'm bored,
I'm the chairman of the board.

I'm sick,
I'm sick of all my kicks,
I'm sick of all the stiffs,
I'm sick of all the dips,
I'm bored.

I bore myself to sleep at night,
I bore myself in broad daylight
'Cause I'm bored,
I'm bored,
Just another dirty bore.

All right doll-face,
Come on and bore me.

I am sick,
I am sick of all my kicks,
I am sick of all the stiffs,
I'm sick of all the dips,
I'm sick.

I'm sick when I go to sleep at night,
I'm still sick in the broad daylight,
'Cause I'm bored!,
I'm bored,

I'm the chairman of the... bored!

My problem is I always sit next to people who make me laugh during "important" meetings. Not good. :)

Andrew: Me too.

SB: Thanks. And that is amazing. I had never heard of Mr. Pop before let alone his lyrics.

Floots: I hear ya. I have a few more years left of 'em.

John: Thanks.

Aurora: I can picture that. I'm sure we'd all love to be little flies on the wall at some of your meetings.

Pamela: Thank you.

Reminding me, during November I must participate some meetings ;-(

They are mostly in Helsinki, and I must take an early bus or (I prefer) the train, two hours trip, then the meeting (sometimes meetings) and after sunset back home.

(Sometimes the meetings are kept by videos, those I like more?)

Tikkis: good luck on your meetings. Hopefully you won't wake anyone up with your snoring. ;-)
