#MicroblogMondays 4

I've been thinking lately that it would be great if I could clone myself.  It seems that there simply aren't enough hours in each week for me to do all the things I need to do at work and at home and still spend the time I'd like to spend with my sons and my husband--not to mention my friends--and have sufficient hours left in the day for things like eating, hygiene, sleep, etc.

However, each time I think having a clone would be a good idea, I am reminded of the movie Multiplicity from the 1990s, where Michael Keaton's character had the same notion, and the plan didn't work out very well for him.

So rather than cloning myself, I guess I'll have to go back to letting certain things slide, being more disciplined overall, outsourcing what I can, and practicing triage.

  1. Cloning was part of Doctor Who this week. Part of it was the lack of trust you would have in talking to someone who looked exactly like you. It didn't really work for me because I kept thinking about how identical twins experience that all the time, and they certainly have trust for one another. But regardless, let it slide... or... let it gooooooooo.

  2. That's one of my favorite movies! Each clone shows a different part of who he is, so maybe that's what you're doing too- just reminding yourself of the different and awesome parts of you!

  3. I'm also reminded of the Simpsons episode where Homer clones himself and I think I recall that also didn't work out so well!
