Cleaning up afterward

It's almost not worth having Columbus Day off. First, since it's not a holiday for the rest of the Evil Banking Neighbor, I get screwed out of a day's PTO, and second, since it's not a holiday for the rest of the Evil Banking Neighbor, I have all of yesterday's work to take care of on top of today's, with a side order of "I e-mailed you yesterday..." to go with it.

The Twins got knocked out of the playoffs by the Yankees, partially due to Gardenhire's ineptitude and partially because the bullpen sucks. We can chalk that up to Gardenhire too, I suppose, since the bullpen was a traditional strong point of the Twins under Tom Kelly - even if everything else on the team stunk, the bullpen was consistently good, because it really isn't all that hard to find five guys who can pitch well for an inning or two, and TK was good at finding them. Well, at least the Red Sox and the Astros are still in it; the big question is whether the 'Stros can beat the Cardinals, and considering that they won 10 of 18 games (with two series sweeps) off them in the regular season, there's a good chance that the Astros will bring home a pennant for the first time in their history.

Well, enough about that. Time to earn my salary.

I would have loved columbus day off even without pay, i need more time off but i'm already booked to work 2 nights a week for all of october at the public library and i really need the money which is why I work the weekends even though it seriously cuts into my social life (what social life?? yeah exactly)

Too bad we can't loan each other PTO days. I think you need my last day of PTO more than I do...of course that would mean I couldn't stay home sick at all for the rest of the year, but then this is just hypothetical anyway.
