Métro, Boulot, Dodo

In English, we have a saying "same old same old" which is a reply to anyone asking "How's it going?" or "How are things?" It is a way of saying that there is nothing different. It is the same dull thing everyday. The French have a saying that is:

Métro, Boulot, Dodo (meh troh boo loh doh doh) which is their way of saying the same humdrum thing everyday or that you are too busy to do anything. It literally translates to "I Commute, I Work, I Sleep" 

Métro -obviously means "subway" (the commute)
Boulot -means "job" or "work"
Dodo -is a childlike way of say "sleep" (sort of tranlslating to beddy-bie)
