Thanks, but no thanks

The holidays get kind of much for me, so I’m not too upset about working through Thanksgiving. There’s plenty to get on with, and some of the team want to do the family thing. Don’t get me wrong – I’ll drive down to my mom’s on Thursday night to say hi, but I’m not turning it into the four-day festival of food everyone else seems to want. 

One of the problems with this whole international telecommuting idea is what we all do when there’s a public holiday. Ignatius was like, “A *Thursday*? What kind of country has a holiday on a Thursday?” I get the feeling he’s still sore about the Declaration of Independence. 

I’m just thankful I won’t be getting bloated on turkey tortillas. This time of year always plays hell with my waistline.


Yes we can – if you can wait

I stayed up late, along with most of the nation. I get the feeling nobody will get much work done today.

“Can we do it?”

“Maybe later…”
