    We could well make 7,500 tonight, leaving only another 500 for tomorrow.

    Maybe RJ should take the day off tomorrow so he can participate.

    Decisions...

    Sleep some more, or go get dinner? (The cupboard is bare; I let everything run out prior to my truncated trip)

    Do I feel good enough to make the annual pilgrimage to the Kalamazoo event, and pester Maister while there?

    Depending on how things go tomorrow, I might pay you to go and pester Maister.

    Getting 525 tomorrow would be easy. Let's go for another 50ish tonight.... we got this in the bag

    Go west as fast as you can. You'd get, what, four or five more hours of weekend in Hawaii.

    I am off tomorrow. This year we did great with how the holidays aligned on the calendar. Next year we lose two holiday days off. Guess I can't complain, the office was closed for a week due to Hurricane Sandy.

    Better work on your math a little. I think that formula leaves us a little short of 8,000.

    The main thing I have to do at work is finish my fiscal year end budget estimates. But I forgot my password for the budget program. Might be difficult.

    What a way to start the new year - first thing wednesday morning - go for a root canal.
    Another day off - sick time - so I was thinking about RJing thursday and friday - that way I will have been away from work for 3 weeks.

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
