Vacation

Monday, September 22, 2008
Ah, vacation, how I love thee.

I don't have to deal with sales people. I can do what I wish. I don't have to deal with sales people. I can sleep in. I don't have to deal with sales people. I can go shopping. I don't have to deal with sales people. I can ignore my phone.

And have I mentioned that I don't have to deal with sales people? That's the real benefit of vacation days in my job. Of any job that has sales people as the "customer."

I'm using my last two vacation days of the fiscal year today and tomorrow, and essentially being a lazy-ass. My big plans? Getting a pedicure. Going to Costco. Practicing my bass. Doing a bit of homework. Basically just fucking around.

After October 1st, my vacation counter will roll over again, and I won't have as many unaccounted for days. The Smart Man and I have some plans for next year, so I'll need to save them for specific activities.

Hmm...vacation!

I was going to take Thursday as a mental health vacation day. It didn't happen. I ended up working until 5:30pm. Sigh.

At least we don't have use-or-lose days, thank goodness, or I'd be hosed.

Enjoy your days off!

Enjoy your vacation - 'cause I have some plans for you when you get back to work...

Have fun storming the castle!

Oh. Wait. Wrong movie.

John the Scientist said...

Michelle, you have no idea. I think I might see if I really do have access to balut.

Janiece Murphy said...

John, now that's just weak.

I've actually eaten balut.

I lived the PI for 2 years, after all.

Surely you can do better than that...

John the Scientist said...

The balut wasn't for you Janiece. You've admitted to eating it (so has Jim). But it has its uses. There are 3 trollops after all.

For you? Well, I'm still thinking about it. A quick trip to the Chinese pharmacy tomorrow night shake loose some ideas...

Janiece Murphy said...

Bwahahahaha!

Random Michelle K said...

Maybe I can start claiming that I won't eat things that are treyf...

Cindi in CO said...

Lucky.

John the Scientist said...

Durian is not treyf.

Random Michelle K said...

Never claimed Durian was.

But I don't see vomit as being kosher. And didn't the bible mention bugs as being Right Out?
