The Hump Day Humor-Gram December 17, 2003 Issue #72

Special Note: Since we at the Hump Day Express
value taking REAL holidays away from it all and
advocate a healthy lifestyle with a good life/work
balance, and, if possible, plenty of sun in
warm climates, we’re taking our own good humour
medicine and giving ourselves a much needed break.
Or at least, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

So we will see you again in mid-January.
Happy Holidays to one and all!

In this issue . . .

1. Ho Ho Ho While You Work

On a lot of stress tests, Christmas shows up as one of the TOP
stressors of the year. In fact, the season of joy, for too many
folks, has turned in the season of stress.

So my simple holiday message to you today is this: Take
a page out of Santa’s playbook and remember to Ho Ho Ho as
much as often. I’d suggest a daily dose of about 20 Ho’s
per hour, if possible. More if you haven’t started your
shopping yet. And triple if your in-laws are coming to your
house for Christmas dinner.

Remember, if you suppress your Ho Ho’s it goes right
to your hips . . .
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

As we gear up for another big year, it’s the perfect time to
start thinking about those New Year’s resolutions.

So take some time over the next few weeks to plan your goals
in the FUN department (who said goals have to be painful and
serious and responsible?).

What one (At least!) FUN thing are you going to do in 2004?

What one simple thing can you different at your workplace
to make your work more fun?

And once you’ve thought about this for yourself, get your team
together and talk about your workplace humour/fun/wellness
resolutions for 2004. I’m serious. Do it. Right now.
Go. Shoo. Don’t make go all Dr. Phil on you.
3. Deep Thought of the Week

I’ve made a New Year’s resolution that I’d like to share with
everyone. This year, I’m resolving not to procrastinate anymore
and I’m going to start sometime in early February.
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

The fun-suckers at Spy Magazine have calculated that for
Santa to make all his necessary stops, and taking into account
the weight of his sleigh, he and his reindeer would have to
travel so fast that his reindeer would be vaporized in
4.26 thousands of a second.

Happy Hump Day one and all. May the farce be with you all
season long! See you in 2004!
