Anyone else stuck at work on New Years Eve???



I switched to 10-hr days and now work the weekend, which is usually cool because I now have the week off--but now I'm stuck here New Years

Yeah, I work until midnight (12 hour shift). But at least I work next door to a bar and across the street from a second bar.

With the new development in the Windows exploit, I was down at work putting extra security precautions on all the computers in preparation for the main assault. I just got home. The worst part is I had left a pot of soup on but it was on low enough just to boil and boil and boil.

Dang it, I scheduled a day of work today but my apprentice called in sick. I can't complete what needs to be done, so no use going in, and the project will now come in a day late. Now I'll have to relax for the rest of the day.
