    @Carlo I suspect there will be nobody around to co-op with. Monday was utterly deserted. Oh well, it's in the bag, along with Xenoblade 2.

    I'm here because I have to be.

    I was hoping my team would do the decent thing and stay home so I could slack off in peace, but no, here they all fucking are. Jobsworth cunts.

    At work, should be lots to work on but don't physically have anything to work on. Been like this for months. Very odd.

    Sat in the office now updating the Spreadsheet of Doom for the next steam codes thread. Cold as hell in here today. Not sure if the heating's off, or it's just the lack of background heat from PCs etc.

    Ugh! Came in hoping for a quiet day, but we've had two major incidents and I've a few things to fix at other sites which can't be done remotely.

    I'm WFH and catching up on the email backlog. At least this way I should be able to come back in the new year without Outlook screaming at me. Looks like my boss didn't tell people to WFH, so two are sat in work looking at each other wondering why they bothered.

    We've had one minor panic here this morning - dealt with now. Just enough of a problem to serve as a reminder that we insist on the place being manned between Christmas and New Year for good reasons. Possibly scotches my plan to spend the afternoon playing Xenoblade Chronicles 2 at my desk, though.

    I've no chance of getting out early today or tomorrow thanks to other people's fuck ups.

    I'll still be wading through their dribble over the weekend.

    @challenge_hanukkah That's annoying, especially when it's other people's fuckups you have to sort out.

    Fairly quiet here. Emails done with. A few phonecalls, but that's it. Hoping to leave early.

    I was 2 hours late to work today, turned up just in time for Pizza lunch. Unsure when to drop that I need to leave an hour early today...

    I've been very fortunate, in that I work with some very studious and professional people.

    Had nothing over the holiday so far, and after doing my bit of admin work, I'm pretty much free now.

    I will be going into the office tomorrow (as it's only fair that we all try and do 1 day in the office), but will be taking a nice long runaround London (likely Blackfiars bridge to Shadwell Basin and back), and a decent lunch somewhere

    After that brief flap this morning, it's all gone very quiet indeed here now. Suspect I'll stick with it until 4PM, then wander off.

    @askew it's the early contender for sure.

    Went to work. Got bored. Went home.

    The wonder of being self managed.

    I am working. Not too bad really. Not much happening and I’m getting paid for it. Could be worse:)

    Sitting with feet up with a tea listening to Bohemian Betyars and just had to explain to someone you don't need to understand the language to enjoy the music. But, and I quote, "I'm a bit silly for listening to it when there are so many great English speaking bands".

    Needless to say I put my earphones in and they tool the hint and pissed off. Roll on 7pm.

    An e-mail! An actual, honest-to-goodness work e-mail. Only took me 2 minutes to respond to it, but that really livened things up a bit!

    I've taken my emails down from over a hundred unread to 15 and I've filed another hundred (and actually read some of them which is something I don't usually get to do).

    Also had a couple of games of Diablo, but have worked pretty solidly all the way through the morning and haven't had lunch or anything.

    I haven't had a single email today. I'm basically just listening to game of the year podcasts and trying to plan some 2019 holidays.
