I am glad all that holiday stuff is over with. Now it's time to take down the tree, put up the lights, and finish all the holiday drinks if you had any leftover. It's time to get back to work and remove all those out of office messages from the email system. The last few weeks it felt like me and my crew were the only ones working. It's hard to look busy in that situation and it might have been a problem but none of our bosses were working either. They don't know what the hell we were doing. I know there are a bunch of people who haven't gotten up early in awhile. There's gonna be a bunch of sad looking faces in the morning from adults and all the kids that's been out of school. I'll be next to them at the stoplight singing in my car. It's been a rough holiday season and I am glad it's over. In my last post I said I wasn't going to make any list of things to look forward to for the new year and I won't but there are some things that will be doing a little different.
* I am no longer working on any laptops full of viruses from people using Limewire or clicking on the wrong things. They keep using the computer for weeks and then when it is so infected that they can barely turn it on they want to bring it to me and I am supposed to save all their documents and stuff. This is a pain and I won't be doing it again unless its someone really close to me.
* I will be throwing away all the junk I have been saving in the event something happens and I need it. I keep saving all this junk and nothing ever happens where I need it. It's time to fill up my trash can. I have wires, tools and parts to stuff that I have no idea why I have them. That junk has to go.
* I will take more vacation days and try to end the year with less than ten weeks worth. I hardly ever take off from work but I am going to start doing it a little more. I figure I could take at least four weeks of vacation and still have about nine weeks at the end of the year. That sounds good. Don't be jealous.
Maybe 2010 will be the year Jay Electronica finally releases his new CD and one of these local stations will give him some of that hometown love they give Lil Wayne.
