I may be some time…

So, don’t hate me, but I have a 4 day weekend coming up!!

Whoo hooooooo!!!!

The policy where I work at is that you can carry over 5vacation days from the previous year, but you have to use them by March 31st. Somehow I managed to carry over 4.5days last year and I have to use the 2.5days by Monday, so technically I have a 4.5 day weekend coming up as I’ll be leaving after a 2pm meeting today to start my long weekend.

I’m using the rest of the day to give my apartment a thorough scrub down before my pal Steph arrives in New York from DC this evening. Steph’s in town for a big event, Ash & E’s wedding tomorrow evening. Ash is a good friend of ours and one of the first people I met when I moved to New York. She happened to move here – from Dublin - the day before I did, on the 14th June 2000, we used to celebrate our NYC anniversaries together and tomorrow she marries E - a nice Italian boy from Vicenza - at a church in downtown Manhattan.

I’m thrilled for her, she’s the happiest I've ever seen her, plus it should be a really fun wedding, what with the Irish and the Italians flying in, all the New Yorkers and a sprinkling of non-local Americans coming into town. Believe me; I’m going to need a 4day weekend to recover ;-)

Ouch, I can feel the hangover already. Plenty of water before you go to bed. And get your friend to bring soluble Solpadeine over as well!
