and... I get a snow day -- kind of..

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.

enjoy! I'm just hoping the weekend swim meet is cancelled (or at least the Fri part) so that tomorrow really is without any plans! It's 2 hours from here and sounds like an unpleasant journey at this point.
