Well I started my "vacation", last Friday. Really what it means is I have a month of vacation time I have to burn between now and the end of the year. In past years, I've taken from mid-November to the first week of January. Mainly because of working the second job at the store, with the extended giftmas hours, it just reduces the stress on my body. However, since this year, I no longer have someone to fill in for my while I'm out, I'm taking days here and there.

I had originally planned on only working Monday and Tuesday, each week, through the end of the year. But now those plans have been screwed, because I have to be here on Nov 30 and Dec 1, so next week is only Friday off. The week after, I have an audit on Wednesday, so it's cut down to only Thurs and Fri. Oh well, just like Gloria Gaynor, "I Will Survive".

Speaking of the store, this is of course Hell Week. Tomorrow, XBOX 360 hits the shelves and "Everybody wants you". (What is it with all of the 80's music suddenly popping into my head? But I thought Billy Squire was HOT!) We've only been allocated 15 per store, so we already know there will be fights. And MS has announced there won't be any additional units available until February or March, of next year.

And then comes Black Friday!! I found out last night, I'm scheduled that day from 3:00 am to 4:00 pm. Oh joy. In my best Big Gay Al voice...Oh, I'm just so overwhelmed with the giftmas spirit.

I guess I should get to work, since I have several projects that I need to get done this week. Yes, bow all you lowly subjects, to the King of Procrastination.
