TGIF & Quotes of the Day

Usually I love Fridays.. scratch that train of thought. I still love em. But days like today make you reflect on all the reasons they are good.. cause today has been an insane ride filled with me fighting fires the whole day (figurative fires) and scheduling tons of work among the very few people at work who actually showed up today.

Baah.. it seems like people are always around when its fun and games. But when the going gets tough, the lazy and weak get going.

And on that note.. time for the quotes of the day. No theme today.
