Trying to decide whether I should go in to work tomorrow or not. If I went in to work,
(a) I could catch up on certain e-mail threads that I might need to respond to as early as... er... tomorrow.
(b) I could go see James Bond movie with whatever dregs of the group aren't also gone.
(c) I could, you know, tell my boss that I'm taking this week off, in case it wasn't obvious.
(d) I'd save a vacation day.
However, I don't think I'd actually get any work done, so (d) is probably not a good idea. I might go in just to check e-mail and catch the movie, I suppose, then head right home from the movie, and mark the whole day off as vacation. Probably the best choice.
I don't like the idea of going in to work when I'm on vacation, though, even if it is only to check e-mail and not to actually work. It offends my principles, such as they are. Once, I was asked to come in on a weekend. I couldn't do it. The weekend was totally ruined by fear and guilt and anger and outrage, but I couldn't make myself actually show up to work on my day off.
This isn't really the same thing, though. At least, I don't think it is. Current Mood: ambivalent
