I didn't realize we were so close to shutting down the previous thread. Poor showing on my part. Sunny but cold day again.

More drama at work but it looks like somebody overplayed their hand.

Technically I could have a 4 day week that week as well and have 6 shortened weeks in a row since 21st is a holiday for us. I will just work it thought and celebrate MLK day some time in July.

Officially done with work until after the holidays. Finished a conference call approving the grant proposal with just a few minor changes. Submitted and done. Told my other clients unless your place is on fire and really need me to help put it out, I'll see you at the Christmas party.

Where is the egg nog?

Holiday pot luck going on in another IT building in Chesapeake... followed by a quarterly staff meeting. Wonder how many people will be "focused" for this meeting? Sometimes managers just don't get it.

I've only been to DL. It is a very compact version of WDW. Personally I think a PH would be a good idea. Knock out Cars Land at CA, then knock out the DL headliners.

Works for me, but if I were you, I'd take advantage of this opportunity to post pad. You should try it, everyone else does it!

You are just not having any luck at this message board thing here lately. You might need to take a break for a while.

You guys are all getting me excited. (about Disney)
While i am going to miss out on the convention I will be there about two weeks after you all.

The bad, You all get to go before me.
The bad, You will be posting things and making me wish i was there.

Tha Good, once you all are back and working, I will be in Disney and the rolls will be reversed.

On a good note, I got a flashy Christmas card from work today and it had a $100 gc to walmart in it. Maybe i can finish Christmas shopping with it now.

Wow, so many people taking off for the rest of the year already! Bunch 'a slackers. I'm working all the way up through Dec. 24th.

Once again, we see the state government employee setting the example of hard work and dedication.

Now back to surfing the boards...

Just read the news that 28 people were shot by 2 gunmen at an elementary school in Connecticut. Prayers for all of the families in that situation. Truly horrific.

Unbelievable!

Prayers to the families of the victims.

Just texted DisDadDoc (Chris) who, thankfully, is about 30 miles away from the affected school/area.
