You *go*, Peggy Bones! :)
That’s it; you’re obviously unwell. We’re going drinking.

Oh no you didn’t! I am not Peggy Bones, nor shall I ever be.
But I agree, we should go drinking. When?

Mmm-hmmm. Oh yes, I did! Inspirational Management Guru, please.
“Pessimism is an emotion. Optimism is willpower”?
I think an ecstasy-addled unicorn just puked up a rainbow on a basket of mewling kittens. Sorry, but you totally *earned* that comparison to P.B. (Was it your quote, btw, and if not, whose? I do so hope it was yours!)
We’ll talk soon and figure out a time to go carousing…two papers to write this weekend, so I’ll call you during the week.
