I got to the office 15 hours ago....

*sigh* It's 10:05 p,m., and I've just come back upstairs to my office after having a quick dinner. And that's my office at work, you understand, not at home. If all goes well, I'll be out of here in another 14 1/2 hours. The plan was to go home at my regular time tonight (which lately seems to mean leaving the office at 6:30 p.m.), and take tomorrow as a vacation day to do my normal Saturday running around so that I could be on a plane to San Francisco Saturday afternoon. The San Francisco trip is still a go, but life's gotten in the way of the rest of it....

Oh yes, and the air conditioning in the building gets turned off around 7:00 p.m., so it's just a little warm in here....

Aren't you glad I don't post more often? :-S

When the air conditioning goes off, that's the worst! Ours shuts down at about 4:30 (I have loud vents in my room so it is only too audible). At least I have old school windows (it is, literally, an old school, too) which I can open - I bet you have no such luxury! What is keeping you there do long? Am I remembering wrong, or doesn't your busy time come in the spring? I bet at least you get to see lovely sunrises and sunsets... And San Francisco! Yay! What're you doing there?

You're right -- my busiest time is January and February (annual submission of the bank's small business and community development lending data is due on March 1st)-- but now we're waiting for the OCC examiners to come in to do a data integrity review in advance of next spring's CRA Exam. I have a lot of backup work to complete on the previously-qualified community development loans, so that everything will be in place when they select a sample to look at.

Windows that open ... what a novel concept! Of course, when you work in a 50-storey office tower that might not be the most desirable architectural feature....

San Francisco was the opera ("Rigoletto"). Will be going up again for the same reason in late October and late November. :-)

Oh, and my hopes of getting out of the office around noon on Friday were dashed; ended up having to work a normal day. Still, that means a vacation day saved. :-)

Hurrah vacation days! Hurrah opera! We've got an all Verdi season with Falstaff, Ottelo and La Traviata! (yes, only three shows).

I don't think I said how lovely the tote bag was - thank you! When I finally got it from the post office. ;)

Oh and I forgot there's another small opera they're doing - contemporary, even!

Now I must go get ready for my next class and try to keep awake through the haze of the oncoming cold season...

I'm glad you like the little tote! I thought it would be perfect for those days when you don't want to lug around something huge. After buying yours, I went back and got one for myself. :-)

San Francisco was gorgeous. Thirty degrees cooler than L.A.!
