What's on the nightstand

"King Solomon's Mines"

work from home


Monday, 07 April, 2003

I'm home. Both figuratively and literally. Since my recent travels took me on a route through Southeast Asia, my company has asked me to work from home this week due to concerns over SARS. I can certainly understand it - it would be corporately irresponsible to allow an employee to have contact with colleagues and clients when they might be potentially infected.

Or maybe they just don't like me.

This might not be a smart thing in the long run. I have my computer hooked up to the office e-mail system, I have my cell phone available, and I'm able to do all the work I would normally do, without the interruptions of office chit chat. It's actually very efficient - all while wearing my Mickey Mouse sweats and bunny slippers.

[I could get used to this.]

Having spent the last two+ weeks near the equator, wearing shorts, t-shirts, swim suits and no shoes, you can imagine my dismay as I sat here today watching it SNOW. Nothing is sticking around here, but there was some accumulation is outlying areas. It's April, for Pete's Sake!

[Another plus for not going to work today.]
