Buying Time

While you reflect on how far you didn’t get over the last decade, here’s a classic from a decade ago …

To the tune of Closing Time by Semisonic.

Buying time – time for you to go out, go out and meet the day
Buying time – turn the lights on your suppliers near and far away
Buying time – one month left on the contract, so finish your auction or quote
Buying time – you don’t have to decide if you call a vote

You know who you want to win the bid
You know who you want to win the bid
You know who you want to win the bid
win the bid …

Buying time – time for you to rank the responses you get from the crowd
Buying time – your work won’t be finished ’til your team-mates and bosses are cowed
So gather up your courage, and move it to completion – I hope you still have a friend
Buying time – every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end

Yeah, You know who you want to win the bid
You know who you want to win the bid
You know who you want to win the bid
win the bid…

Buying time – time for you to go back to the market your goods come from…

You know who you want to win the bid
You know who you want to win the bid
You know who you want to win the bid
win the bid…

Buying time – every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end…

I Write Alone …

While I wait for the World Cup to finish and your focus to return to work, here’s a classic from 2012:

I write alone, yeah
with nobody else
I write alone, yeah
with nobody else
You know when I write alone
I prefer to be by myself

Every morning just before breakfast
I don’t want no bad company
Just me and good buddy lonesome
That’s all I ever need
‘Cause I write alone, yeah
with nobody else
You know when I write alone
I prefer to be by myself

The other night I laid sleeping
And I woke up with inspiration
So I fired up my trusty Macbook
And I turned off dication
And I wrote alone, yeah
with nobody else
You know when I write alone
I prefer to be by myself

The other day I got invited to a circle
But I stayed offline instead
Just me and my trusty text edit
Spinning up a brand new thread
And I wrote alone, yeah
with nobody else
You know when I write alone
I prefer to be by myself

My fellow bloggers done give up on me
But I don’t feel inadequate
That the only ones hanging out with me
Are my dear old LOLCats
And we write alone, yeah
with nobody else
You know when we write alone
We prefer to be by ourselves!
