Actually, it's pretty cool having the whole office to myself. Music is up as loud as my desktop speakers will allow and a fresh coffee pot to myself

Anyone else stuck in the office on this Thanksgiving day?

Just stuck at home with nowhere to go...nothing to do. Cold, wet and dreary outside. Off to see James Bond in a hour or so.

Ooh lucky you JG! Do report back on it, I can't wait to see it. Off to the mother-in-law's in about 30 mins for the annual blow-out.

If it doesn't involve being slumped in front of a TV, I guess so

Not at work, it is too nice for that... clear blue skies not a cloud to be seen, 80F, light winds, just had a full english brunch outside, going in the hot tub later, then roast lamb for dinner, turkey is overrated!!! I knew there was an upside to TX weather.

Yup, it's a joy to do a day of work with no interruption. I'm having my turkey meal later this evening. However I did go outside and like Austin it's 80F here and I did wonder quite why I decided to work today... maybe tomorrow I'll lie in the park

Sure is nice to not have the phone ring or e-mails flying into the inbox. Weekends and holidays are my most productive times

I'm kind of working. Studying for an exam. My family's taken off to see the in-laws and feed. I have the house to myself, a sunny day, fruit salad and a LOT of books.
