I am having a sleepless night so I watched some golf on one of those late night sports channels, hoping to get tired. The setting was somewhere in China on a 5-star course. Golf is already boring to watch; that's a given. But tonight, I discovered a new low...British golf announcers. Those guys are unbelievably dull, whispering and speaking in monotones like they're attending a funeral. It could have worked in my favor until I heard those idiots calling China...Chin'er. Wake up you guys! I found myself yelling at the TV, "There's no bloody "r" in China, you idiots!" I would expect such pronounciation from some local Cockney soccer announcer but not from world class golf TV broadcasters. Now that I'm all riled up, I may as well go to the office and get some work done before my employees show up. And here I was hoping some nice boring golf would make me sleepy. Oh well, I'm giving each employee an unexpected 5K bonus to start 2009 so it will be nice to get those checks on their desks before they arrive. It's 4:41 am here.
