I'm here for an undetermined amount of time. Once the president of the university decides we can all go home, then I'm out of here. Hopefully it will be early enough so that I can hit the road and make it back to my folks place. I don't want to drive in the evening in the dark with these road conditions we have now...

Everyone else here gets to leave at noon. I get to stay until the courier picks up. Last year it was 5:30.

I'm at work today. Of course, I work from home, but still.... I'm SUPPOSED to be on vacation today. And the question begs asking; I have been told I will be offshored and layed-off during 1st quarter 2009. Why am I here working?!? angry

I'm here, though due to some additional snow and the obvious semi-holiday I'm the only one of nine in my work group. And my boss and boss's boss is gone. I'm just trying to keep semi-motivated. It wouldn't be much better at home, anyway, frankly.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

Working until 11:30 MST

My wife is Director of Religious Education at our Unitarian Universalist church, so we also have Christmas Eve "duties" at the 5:00 & 7:00 services, but those are labors of love.

Peace, everyone!

Yup - it's life. At least we are closed between Christmas and New Year. However, I have just found out that I will be the only person in my group of 10 here on January 2nd. I am not allowed to take that day off.

I'm stuck at work today and I'm not even sure we'll be closing early. I may have to sneak out around 3:00 if there's no word by then. Nothing's getting done today anyway

And fast food places and Waffle House, for those of us who will be on the road over the holiday!

Alas, I am. I was supposed to leave at about noon but due to the gross incompetence of some of my fellow "workers" it looks like I will be here longer.

Me too. I will be here at the FedEx Home Delivery office until every single package we sent out from this terminal (1166) gets delivered if humanly possible. I might be here until midnight, but it makes me feel like Santa (rather than just looking like Santa).

And if I wasn't at work, would I be on BGG?

Leaving at 1:45 this afternoon. That feels really far away because I'm finished with my work now! (11:30)
