Seems the company has a rule about not carrying over vacation time into the next year, but at the same time, they have a policy that new employees can't use earned vacation time in the first three months. So here I am.<P>And really no one else. There's tons of urgent stuff to do, but no one here to do it. One guy I work with came sprinting into my office first thing this morning, startling me, since he was supposed to be out. He asked for an update on everything that had happened since late Friday afternoon. When I told him I had just been in the office for ten minutes, and that all the people I need to talk to to get an update are not in, so I really had nothing much to say, he looked disappointed and went back home.<P>Anyhoo, wudja get for XMas? Me, I got the following:<P>1) Bathrobe
2) Slippers
3) Sweater
4) Sweatshirt<P>I'd be all set to go to an Alaskan hospital, except for the following: my brother-in-law "accidentally" took my presents home with him. I say "accidentally", since I suspect that they realize I won't miss them, and they'll be able to recycle them for next year.

I'd never heard of that guy ever before,
and my friend kept making references to
him in a comical manner. Well, finally
at his house I got to see the ridiculous
man and laughed. Later on, I happened to
actually see his stupid book in a book
store and I laughed so hard I vomited
and died and my ghost now must spread the
tale of that horrid day with the internet.<P>Mike "For some reason my ghost must also
