1. I can if I get all my hours in before Friday.
But they just offered me some more hours, so it looks like I'll just have Friday afternoon off instead of the whole day.

23. Should be interesting to see...
if Governor Goodhair's love for the Gipper outweighs his seething hatred of State employees.

4. Not for funeral -- I was taking Friday off anyway
I have the a/c guy coming (tune-up), the city inspector coming (last week's furnace installation), and then we're off to the state Dem convention in Appleton.

I've had this day scheduled for weeks -- my company's a publishing house in Wisconsin, so we're open.

7. Yup ...
Finally, the Gipper does something positive for the federal workers he loved so dearly.

I just hope Wednesday evening's DC commute isn't screwed up too badly.

11. "hope Wednesday evening's DC commute isn't screwed up too badly"
That's hoping against hope, balrog. I'm leaving work 3 hours early that day. It's going to be absolutely miserable.

I will ask my liberal boss who will probably laugh, then ask HIS conservative boss who is probably crying as I type this. How about a "maybe"?

So if any of you do have to work on Friday, I'll try to pick up the slack for you. What ever the heck that means! (plenty of time to think about it!)

But just cause I already had scheduled that day off. I'm going to the Chicago Bluesfest with Blue-Jay.

Not sure what will be more "fun." the news coverage or the flame wars here. Too bad we'll miss it all. :eyes:

Depends on how far he wants to take his GOP creds.

Hey, if it happens, I'll honor RR by sleeping in -- the way he did on his job during meetings, etc.

on edit: bloody typos!

Edited on Mon Jun-07-04 03:23 PM by Bertha Venation
IMHO

the idea is to honor the office, not the man -- at least AFAIC. I could give two shits why Republicans are drooling over having a day off.

I hope you get the day off after all


And: Go Tribe! Except when they're playing the Halos! O8)

54. We got days off when Truman and Johnson died...
And I've just dated myself (and my length of service). But still no word yet from the statewide offices on any plans for shutting down on Friday.
= = = = = = =
The Halos have too many injuries! They've actually held things together fairly well with so many key players down (until the spanking they got from the Indians). Garrett Anderson and Tim Salmon should be back in this week, with Darin Erstad coming along soon. But now Percival is on the 15-day list!

32. They're doing this on Kamehameha Day?!
Nearly everyone has June 11 off here. Kamehameha Day is a state (but not, normally, Federal) holiday.

Compared to King Kamehameha I, first to unify all the Hawaiian islands after centuries of failed attempts, Reagan was a two-bit hustler.

36. Off Friday
Our human resources vice president just sent out a message that all World Bank Group offices in DC will be closed Friday following our standard practice of opening and closing in line with the federal government. That means I can stay home and enjoy my almost 2 year old toddler.
