I'll take tomorrow to recover

I sound like Selma, Marge Simpson's sister. "You should have never married that man, Marge," I said in my new "I smoke a pack a day" voice, and the office cracked up.

I'd also just been given approval to take tomorrow off "unless I have a profound recovery tomorrow." I am sick and I sound sick. I have nothing pressing to attend to other than writing test cases and there's no reason for me to be killing myself like this. So I won't. (Yes, I could have gone home earlier today, but after the effort of actually making it in, I thought I'd rather just sit quietly at my desk. It's not particularly tiring, after all. And I do get bored at home.)

The CTO guy was dogging my boss for my costing for the conference. This means he's interested in it. I managed to work it out so that the 3 day version of the conference was just as cheap as going for 8 days so I got a Saturday night stay and reduced airfare - and two more days of conferene. This is cool. I think I'm going to get to go.

Right, that's my lung in my lap. I'm off for today - just going to set my OOF message first.
