Ugh, I have to come in tomorrow for work.

Half the firm has already taken this week off. I imagine the other half of the firm will be out tomorrow. Why I'm coming in, I have no idea.

I will be here tomorrow until at least 5 pm. My bosses are brothers, and from a dysfunctional family and many times, holidays do not hold that much import for them. It is what it is.

No way, I scheduled all sorts of technical tomfoolery for yesterday and today. Tomorrow's a half day and I am spending the afternoon on a date with Mrs. A.

I'm off all week. Yesterday was nice for a ride, but I just laid on the couch instead. Today I got a ride in, though.

Well, since I sit at my desk almost 7 days a week trying to revive my income stream, I'm guessing that it's not everyday off.
