I did so. I shall have to go on vacation time after lunch tomorrow and stay gone until after January 4th. Oh, darn. Three-and-a-half weeks off.
I gotta remember to use more annual leave during the rest of the year, next year.
My alarm clock will forget how to buzz. The cats, however, will be pleased and will buzz more than usual. It'll even out.

I had two conflicting versions of a schematic in one of my books, and I'd asked the two engineers to kindly compare notes and bring me a consolidated markup, which I promised to get into the book. One way or another. Honest.
They just left, and I'm looking at it. There are three coffee stains, a beer ring, and pizza smudges. I thought it was an urban legend but I've got actual physical evidence draped across my computer desk: engineers really do design with sharpie on the tablecloth.
I'm just glad the Pizza Parlor uses paper tablecloths.

I'm now done for the year and I'm going to vanish as soon as I get my coffeepot and cube clean enough that I'll be willing to come back to face 'em next year.
