A Little Something About Me

I'm having a problem with my computer at home. I'm trying to fix it but until then I am posting a quickie from work. On Friday we got a bit of snow. Nothing too major, but it was icy and scary. Now I live less than a mile from work and it takes me 3 minutes to get here so, I have to come in when there's bad weather. I mean, really, how pathetic would I be if I didn't? Well on Friday we had exactly 22 people in the office and 22 out. The higher ups were very generous and 1) brought in pizza for lunch so we wouldn't have to go out in the bad weather and 2) let us out at 3. Then today we got an e-mail saying that all the people who braved the weather and came in were getting a bonus 1/2 day Friday. We can use it anytime between now and the end of May. It's a silly thing, but I am excited over it. It seems that the possibilities are endless (until May 30th that is). I haven't decided anything yet, but isn't it nice to have that to think about and plan for?

I got this e-mail from someone and I thought it would be cool to put it here. I didn't put it down in it's entirety though. I just thought it would be fun to do.
