The ability to work from home is getting to easy to take advantage of.

On Wednesday, we have a holiday potluck with the employees in the "front." Us in marketing, exec. mgmt., purchasing, the supply chain division, legal.

There's a White Elephant present event with a combo of nice gifts and gag gifts that you can steal from people.

Here's what I'm giving.'

Guess which one this is?

My friend, who was the guy's college roommate, who died with his familyin the car crash finally emailed me back. I had emailed him right after I read what happened and went to the funeral, but I could tell he was pretty broken up to get back to me.

He emailed me and told me Daryl really appreciated seeing me at the tournament, which was nice to hear.

Ooooh a 4-6-2 Merchant Navy Pacific in Southern Railway livery!

That whooshing sound you hear is the last shreds of my cool credibility flying out of the window.

Listening to an amazing programme on Radio 4 interviewing the doctors who tried to save John Lennon. I don't think I could listen if I were a huge Beatles nut - it's profoundly depressing. But amazing.

Looking at the calendar yesterday, it's only fitting that the shortest and gloomiest day of the year falls on a Wednesday, the middle of the work week.

And rain is scheduled. We need it.

I don't know if I'd be able to do that anymore at my age. I remember many a sleepless night and then having to go to work. Being in my 30s helped.

Just bought a Nintendo class nes mini for myself. Beyound giddy. I've never actually finished Mario bros on the nes. Better put in for time off from work, two weeks ought to do it.

I wanted to take my last seven weeks off before officially retiring but the company rule is you have you work your last day. So I'll take seven weeks off minus one day then work the last day of February and then fuck off. I could retire earlier but there's a 6%tax penalty and I paid rhat back in October when I cased in 80 hours so I decided the govt. got enough money from me so I'll be stubborn and collect what's owed.
