You know what’s lots of fun? Realizing that the a VIE’s (Very Important Executive) hard drive is dying… on a Thursday afternoon… before a three day weekend. W00T! Don’t worry, lots of backups and folder redirections means that he’s already doing all of his work on another laptop, but the mad scramble to figure out what was wrong is not the way I like to ease into relaxation mode.
Of course the fact that I wasn’t even sure if I had tomorrow off should have made it difficult for me to start relaxing anyway. For once I actually knew that there was a possibility that we would have off (normally some conversation on Thursday ends with “Have a nice weekend!” and that tips me off on the holiday), but I kept forgetting to check until today. And then I did. And then everything went kablooey! Ain’t work grand?
