Why, you ask, do I have this huge grin on my face. OK. I had it earlier.

One reason is that I'm on leave. Obviously. Can't remember the last time I had time to blog on a day other that Saturday or Sunday. I've discovered how to get leave, which can be pretty elusive. One way is to do that carpe diem stuff. Take a day off. Don't ask anybody, just don't go to work. It's a really good feeling. Not sure that this is for everyone, but if you are the type who finds getting leave approved difficult, it's also likely that nobody will do anything about you not showing up to work for one day. You've probably made up for that day many times over. One other way is to leave the guy [dis]approving your leave with something to think about. Show up to work at 11 on a couple of occasions, and wait for the confrontation that won't come. If it does, you just declare your fatigue and ask for one month off [because you likely have that many days pending]. There are other ways still, even more extreme, but then again they aren't for everyone.

The other reason was the possibility of doing something crazy/away from the norm. Normal really is boring, and there's something distinctly appealing about going against what is expected of you. The model shmodel.

The last reason was EVE. Ha.
