Ha. There's no escaping fate:

busmans holiday definition: ... %20holiday

A holiday in which you spend most of your time doing the same or something very similar to your normal work.

(Comes from the late 1800's, where a man who drives a bus for a living goes on a long bus journey on their holiday.)
Similar to, if you work as a cook, then when it comes time to have
lunch, -- you will cook some more, for yourself.

Wait, wait, "chickify" actually made it?! I have only seen it as "chickification" on TVTropes, it actually made it as a "proper slang word" and is now in a real dictionary?
