First off - I hope all you south of 49ers had a great Thanksgiving. Since in my job, I deal exclusively with US members, people have been wishing me a happy Thanksgiving for the last two days. It's hard to be on the ball when it comes to holidays that your country doesn't recognize. I love it though - everyone was in such a good mood. Must be all the tryptophan.

Speaking of my job, the company I work for is open 24/7/365, and my department runs from 6am pST to 9pm PST. We work holidays, including Christmas and New Year. Since the forecasters expect volume to be low, we did a shift bid for days off. Whoever has the best stats for the quarter gets first pick of days they want off, and then the next person and the next and so on. There were a limited number of PTO slots opened up, so once they were gone, that was it.

I bid on three days; Christmas day, Boxing day and New Years day. I figured that I would at least get one of them off and have to work the others. I was *so* wrong.

I got all three days! How frickin' cool is that?

I'm going to see if I can book Monday the 24th off as well. If I can, that means I will have Sat-Wed off. But, even if I *can't* get the Monday off, still - sweet! It is way awesome that I have Christmas day and Boxing day off.

I know but I'm cleaning the laundry room so the 18 people that are coming for Christmas Dinner tonight can have somewhere to hide their crap

Well, Ah is confoozed, as it's November 24th & she said "Xmas dinner" and "tonight" together in the same sentence - even in the same claus(e) - HAHAHAHAHA...

( - well, c'mon, Jem, say something: we're talking about you in front of your back, here)

err yes. We're leaving for England and then Orcas Island, Saturday and Tj is leaving for England on the 20th and Lyle is leaving for Australia on the 1st so...

November 24th was a good date for all.

EXCELLENT! Enjoy your well-deserved time off.

Hoping we can get together at least a couple of times before ConFlikt (you *are* coming south for that still, riiiiight?) and rehearse stuff. It's been TOO LONG since we had a chance to do music together!

Thanks!

Hrm. We really *should* get together to practice. I am wondering if maybe I can swing coming down there on a Friday night after work in early January. It's just figuring out logistics for the kids, now the Jazz is going to be doing her work thing I can't depend on her being there to watch them. Unfortunately, their dad would never take them.

We shall see. I would surely like to!
