Well, if I taught on Thursdays this semester, I'd be doing the happy snow dance today.
Tomorrow the college is closed -- AND they cancelled the conference we were all supposed to go to.
I'm happy about this -- since I didn't want to go anyway AND I don't normally teach on Fridays, so I don't have a class day off to compensate for doing this stupid conference... in essence, it is on MY time -- which irritates me.
SO, now I don't have to make a decision tomorrow... the decision would have been between the following
a) go late, pick up my nametag and eat lunch
b) skip-- hope they don't notice or say anything and then blame the snow
c) request 'reassignment' time, to work in my office -- which is what I would have done anyway --
d) suddenly get "sick" -- e-mail my Dean and take a sick day, which I rarely do...
Now, I'll do a modified happy snow dance because I don't have to lie -- and I can do whatever I want to do anyway, sans guilt.
