I tried to write about work, but it's a lot of the same things I've written before. When situations don't change, why should the stories about them?

We've been offered overtime on Saturday. (I know. I know it sounds crazy that we get overtime when there's a huge budget crunch going on.) I'm coming in for it. I could use the money. We're getting here at 7AM. I plan to push straight through to 3PM for my 8 hours then leave my apartment for my parents' place at four. Easter's on Sunday and I like Easter the way my family celebrates it.

So I don't have to rush back here, I'm taking one of my two mandatory, unpaid days off on Monday.

Yes, I am quite the man of leisure.

I like Easter the way your family celebrates it, too! I can't wait!

Sounds odd, but if it means more money, good for you. I hope you have a great Easter and I hope your car chugs it to Cowtown with no probs. Are we talking some deviled eggs here on the Easter feast?

Woo-hoo! I'm glad you took Monday off!
And I'm glad that Heels and family will be coming, too!

Heels -- Hooray! The sun is supposed to be shining.

Geewits -- More money, aka getting my pay check closer to what it was in December, is a very great thing. And there will be deviled eggs, but gin fizzes are the thing at Easter.

Suzi -- See you soon.

How bizarre is it that they have you doing overtime while forcing you to take days off?

Gotta love bureaucracy.
