Im at work as we got an extra day at Christmas off has a stupid bank.
What you doing?
That's why it's so quiet.
The public holiday trade off is definitely one of the perks of working at a university.
IM STILL IN
Working pub hols during the year but getting extra time off over the Christmas shutdown.
I presume it works the same in the uk.
We normally get them off, but not this one (we got one off at new year as Edinburgh becomes middle aged tourists party central then). We do get the same amount of days off in our usual holidays on top though, which is nice.
You get the Monday AND the Tuesday off...
We get all public holidays off and a week at Christmas. Never heard of having to trade before.
Plus it's only some PHs we work (3 a year).
i just get the days to take when ever. however, i am off on friday this week and then next wednesday, so that's a run of three four day weeks which is nice.
however, i have a horrible sty in my right eye and i forgot my glasses so i am suitably unimpressed and really not in a good mood.
did see some ducklings though: http://instagram.com/p/Y9xKuxR7DN/
But my idiot colleague, who downloads films and watches porn at work, has completely fucked up our laptop. M boss is trying to use it now an all he's getting are pop-ups of half naked women and adverts with big, bulky men saying they can tell you how to bulk up, then IE (ikr) crashes. He's getting SO angry but he still doesn't have a clue. I hope this goes on all morning.
Some people are spineless though
am i the only one who hasn't already seen the video that some german lass has made of really badly edited together pictures of her and alan pardew?
THAT'S MY GF!!!
seriously watched it about 5 times this morning i don't even care
specially with the 3 day stubble and shirt untucked *swoon*
so his finger is like six inches away from their faces

you're a great man(ager) so marry me maybe
Head's saying tidy the house, go for a haircut, do a bigshop, and wash my clothes.
Body's saying go and get a case of ale from the corner shop and lie in bed all day watching sport and listening to Pavement.
What sport is even on today?!
Youll like it (no guarantees)
gonna go have a BBQ at a pals.
meant to add that I'm don't know what's making me anxious, every thing is pretty good at the moment.
Spill it or....get out
I was having weird nightmares last night so I didn't sleep great but that's about it.
This is helping though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqLbQp4xZVs&feature=youtu.be
...but it ended in despair. Albeit the sort of despair that comes gaily with a righteous sense of pride.
As they say, 85% of posts...
