First, a call to anyone planning to attend B-Fest. If you are going, especially if you need anything from me on this end, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Less than a month away now!
Second, I hope everyone had a pleasant weekend. I worked Saturday, so mine was short. Yesterday, with my mom still in town, my brother and I and her went to my sister’s house, where my young niece opened her Christmas presents from us. I got her a Marvel Legos video game, but was beaten by my brother, since she preferred to first try out both the paint set he got her and the Despicable Me Monopoly set he also got her. So he won Christmas, damn his eyes.
Can’t complain about the short weekend, though, as it means I have Friday off this week, as well as Tuesday and Wednesday for the holidays. Sadly, we go to a new system at work this year (i.e., starting next week). Whenever we work the weekends now, we have to take the make-up day BEFORE the weekend, rather than after. Seems wrong to me, like dessert before your vegetables. Oh, well.
