Last night I went to bed with my mind made up. I would get up early, and I would run my usual route. It was sound plan indeed!

And then my alarm went off this morning, and I snoozed it without so much as a second thought. The same happened with my second alarm, and my third.  How on earth am I ever going to get up to do an early run? I’m not even consciously aware that turning my alarms off!

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

  • Commander Admiral Chief

    Not 16h00 yet!

    Ah screw it, I’m outta here!

    • miaau

      so, in other words, if your employers need you to stay later, they need to delay the daily round-up here?

      • Commander Admiral Chief

        Nope, the ION just reminds me to go home.

        I’m always on the clock though, so yeah, I duck at 16h00 to miss SOME of the mess on the N1/N14

        • miaau

          I hate traffic and meetings that leave me outside of my city at this time annoy me.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            A year or so ago a we made a decision to start a few minutes earlier in the morning, and leave a few minutes earlier in the afternoon, just to avoid the main afternoon rush.

          • miaau

            I used to do that myself, when I lived further away.

            Also, with kid at home, I want to maximise that time. I suppose early start, early leave is better for that scenario

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            I would love to do something like that but our company doesn’t allow it. I currently start at 6:30, but can’t even attempt leaving before 17:00.

          • miaau

            No, no. I stayed about 20km away, which was an hour drive at rush hour. (Pretoria FAAAR East to Arcadia) So, I arrived before 7 and left just before 18:00. For about 3 years. Twenty minute drive then

            Other problem is, depending on your job, you need fixed hours.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            I’ve been here 3 years and one month now.
            Luckily, however, I live really close by. Mornings that time takes me ten minutes at the most. Afternoons can be anything between 15 min and 40 min depending on traffic and time of year (because Capetonians lose their sh*t when it’s raining)

          • HvR

            That is my setup now, except rush hour can take as long 1h45. But luckily office hours completely flexible and in-office hours not required 5 days a week.

    • Captain JJ ‘saurus

      One day I too will only work specific hours and get to leave at 4.
      One day. 😛

    • Lardus-For the Chimichangas!

      Darnit, I have to stay late. Not because of work, but because of social engagements 🙂

  • Alien Emperor Trevor


  • Hammersteyn

    LOL that music video…. wait…. just three beers?

  • uhhhh…you know it’s been a long day if I can not find a cat gif that’s even funny to me

  • Captain JJ ‘saurus

    I vote Ocelot for next ION.

  • VampyreSquirrel

    OMG I WANT ONE!!!! No seriously, I don’t care how big they get, I want one.

  • HvR

    Ja all cute and all until you round the corner on a farm as 9 year old and stare a big one in the face. #Matty_scared
