Guy is sitting in a bar. A beautiful woman walks in. She's a knock-‐out and
he can't take his eyes off her. She notices him and smiles.
She sashays over and sits beside him. She looks into his eyes and tells him,
"For $200 I'll do anything you want." He's astounded.
"Anything?!", he asks her.
"Yes, anything!", she replies.
He takes out his wallet and slaps $200 on the bar.
You mean to say that you're an expert on something other than eating chocolate???

In the thread about C, Walter Bright's name popped out. Strangely enough, I didn't immediatly thought "o yes D", but "Empire, the war game of the Century."
Anyone remember that? I was hooked on it and spent/wasted many hours playing it.
I need a holiday, all this endless work and stress, so I'm going to try and prise myself from my desk for a week and take the family away somewhere.
That I expect would be a good week but when it's over how long will I remain recharged? Usually a holiday seems like a distant memory after about 1.5 days back at work. There's a bit of me that thinks its just an expensive, frivolous thing to do.
What's your experience? Do holidays have any long-term benefit?
If work gets you down that much then maybe you need to work somewhere else, or less.
A holiday's a nice change and a chance to totally relax for a few days and experience somewhere new, but expecting 1 week to have more of an effect on your happiness than the next 25 is just not realistic. Down time is nice but you need your up time to be good to you as well.
