The Christmas holiday is now over and my son is going through Daddy withdraw. He was really upset that I had to go to work today, but when all of my vacation days were taken away when I transferred into this department, I had none left to take off the week between Christmas and New Years. Now, I am the only one in the office with my boss and it’s kind of driving me nuts since she has to know every exact detail of everything that I am doing. Right now, she’s asking me what I am typing, so officially…this is a memo to the President of the division summarizing the gifts that were sent out in his name. Fun huh. It’s back to real life I suppose. I’m reading a book called World War Z, about a worldwide zombie takeover (fiction) and it was talking about all these people who suddenly became useless during a crisis because they made their living sitting at a desk pushing papers and did not have a real contributive skill like a doctor, construction or farmer. It hit me then that I would be one of those useless ones in the event of a zombie takeover. It specifically mentioned the entertainment industry as being especially worthless. Its great to know that if there ever was any kind of natural disaster or crisis, I would have almost nothing to contribute.

So I went to Thanksgiving in Utah, saw all my family there and had a great time. Then I cam home and got sick. I'm talking the really horrible kind of sick where you have no control over your body. I'm getting over it now, but this marks two thanksgivings in a row. Thanksgiving in general has never been a forgiving holiday for me, but I am thankful for it.
