11 days, 5 hours and 34 mins.
are you going on some sort of gay hot christmas holiday?
Meths couldn't get the time off, so he's joining us a week later.
(ie up to 48)
Nine working days, five working hours, twenty-eight working minutes.
READ IT AND WEEP
first time in ages i've not worked up to christmas eve or on christmas day
or working days?
pretty laissez faire in my threads.
don't know when i'm going back to my parents' place either.
(please do an xmas version?)
there will be TWO Christmas versions. Then a 2 week Christmas break.
Going to take a few random half days in the lead up, and no idea when we'll be let out on the last day, so definitely, definitely fuck off mate.
I'm workign till 3pm on xmas eve. Only got the 25th, 26th, and 1st and 2nd off. Total shite. Going to take some random days in the lead up though, and also a week off in the middle of January with my carried days.
but turns out I would have been the only person in the office on Monday and Tuesday, so I've been given those off. So, 15 days!
working up to (and including) the 20th.
Then 2 weeks off. Then back for a day. Then a day off for an early January wedding in London (see you there, meths?). then back for good.
minus a half-day this Thursday for Work Christmas Party II: Electric Bloodening.
but as I work in a University and term finished last Friday all of December is a bit of a write-off...
they off til Jan 6th
So 17 days.
And then I will spend the ensuing evening at the Camden Head with some DiS legends.
(I just booked an extra two days off)
my personal times are working days.
7 days, 2 hours and 18 mins
Merry Christmas all!
then i'm off until the 23rd and 24th when it'll be dead then off again until the 2nd. WOOOOOO
↑This clearly isn't countdown to Christmas Hometime
and fifty two minutes
my boss has backed down and let me be off between xmas and NY and on friday 3rd (in scotland we get the 2nd as a bank holiday anyway because our hangovers are worse than yours. That's because we drink more btw, not because we're crybaby pussies.)
So, I now finish up on 24th Dec at 3pm and I'm not back until THE SIXTH!!!!!11111111
I also carry 5 days into 2014, plus I have a half day to take at some point next week. HALLELUJAH. I was otherwise going to lose a decent chunk of holiday and sulk a lot.
and happy about this, it has made me a bit emotional. UH OH, HERE COME THE TEARS.
don't pull my pigtails when I'm crying already.
Otherwise it's 23rd Dec at 1.00.
I technically only have (at most) three mornings and an afternoon left, but they're spread over the next ten days.
Short reprise - xmas drinks on 21st. Lots of London/ manc DiS legends coming to Glasgow weekend of 10th jan, so diarise.
just so you know
Not sure if we're expected to work the full day on Friday, bloody hope not.
Probably going to work out as more like 2 days.
3 days, 22 hours, 43 minutes, 6 seconds
Unless they let us go at lunchtime next tuesday instead of 3pm.
i'm off on thursday but then back in on friday. someone else work it out
Imagine still being at work at 5pm on Friday!
a few hours, maybe.
then im off til the 6th january TWENTY FOURTEEN!
although they MIGHT let us go early seeing as the kids are finishing at lunchtime
AND SIX MINUTES
No chocolate left. No mince pies left. Extremely hungover.
jesus christ someone make it end
then 24 hours on call tomorrow
and everyone else will have left the office within 40 mins so I'll just stick on Netflix and open some wine til 8
1hr 56 mins
see you on the other side, guys
