I'm at my desk. I work harder than all you Wussies put together. Your little silly jobs ebb and flow, but Industry's need for patent drawings is relentless.*

*I hope. I'll get back to you on that at the end of Q1 2009.

I'm at work, my boss scheduled a status meeting for this morning, we all agree she's an idiot.
At least I get to leave at 2:00. But I've already done all the 'work' I'm going to do today.
Merry Christmas and Peace to you all.

sux to be you guys.

Since I work from home, and I am at home, I am technically at my place of employment, but I'm off and not making any pretenses. I'm not even checking e-mail today.

I'm at work, but in about an hour we'll set up & have a potluck. Then we'll get to go home early.

If I'm REALLY lucky, our hot water heater will get installed this morning & we can hit the road before it gets dark.

I'm not at my paying job today, but I'll be working like an elve at the LBS. We've got a boatload of toy's to assemble for good girls and boys.

(edit) We are expecting some stormy weather, so the Marina asked if I'd be close by if they needed some help. Sometimes I hate living on a boat at my place of employment.
