Our company is exclusively a government contracting organization.

We have to work even though all our client offices and the banks are closed.

In a totally unrelated story, Im off today. Its the last day. I think the Docs will green light me and send me back to work today....

After a few months off work... Damn, it was nice....

Not me.

There are a few guys here who are 'off' every day!

I am "off" until spring semester starts. Unless I pick up some orders, its gonna be looking for part time work till I go back to school. Then, it will be 4 years of living off uncle sugar daddy and going college again, only working part time for beer money.

I should sue.

I'm not off today; today isn't a market holiday.

I am, however, working from home, due to a violent diagreement between what I reheated for dinner last night and my gastrointestinal system.

I ain't straying too far from the thingie that flushes in the other room.

I'm off...trying to get motivated to hit the range, but it *looks* like the computers and/or the video game sytems might have a hold of me. I should really get off my ass and make some ammo.

I am also trying desperately not to spend money lol...already got a Dillon order qued (sp) up, and I've been toying with the idea of a new receiver for the home theater system. Remote on the one I got now annoys the bejeesus out of me. And then, there are a few AR bits and pieces I need hehehe...you know how it goes.
