it's getting to be that time of year again, people will call and ask "How busy are you" before they even say hello...

My favorite is " Busier than a one-legged man in a but-kickin' contest"

So...while Mr. Greenspan may be shmoozing another 1/4% off , i've found that we in the trenches sing a different tune....

what say you?

Sparky,my favorite is from an e-mail" How to talk Southern", I'm busier than a cat covering crap on a marble floor. I agree, what slowdown?

Mine's "Busier than a one armed paper hanger with the seven year itch."

The only slowdown I've seen is due to me getting older.

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

My girlfriend is so fat, I took her out dancing and she made the band skip.
After that, we went swimming. She uses the diving board to gently lower herself into the pool.

Oops.. sorry!! I thought you asked how fat is my girlfriend!?
