Ah! For the first time in, well, a few years, I get to enjoy the ritual that we 'Mericans call "Vacation", which is sort of like Holiday for the rest of the English-speaking world, except there's generally less time involved because we 'Mericans are brainwashed into believing that we must work every possible hour of every possible day in order to get ahead.

It's the South Park 3-Phase plan to riches:

Phase I: Work your ass off and never take time off unless you're going to die, which would prevent you working, so better take care of that, but come right back when you're better.

Phase II: ???

Phase III: Profit.

Though, I'm finding that I don't know what to do with myself. I've been doing the same things that I normally do (surf the web, listen to DNR, read blogs, etc). There is more beer involved during the normal working hours than usual, so I've got that going for me... But, other than that, it's been uneventful so far.

I'm currently about 6-hours from where I live, so I won't be able to attend the local .NET users group tomorrow (Tuesday) in Toledo. Drew Robbins, the Microsoft Developer Evangelist for the Great Lakes Region, is presenting on VSTS. That's one demo that I would have liked to attend. Oh, well, ce la vie.
