Default This time of the year

I don't know how many other people are involved in marketing or business to business type activities, but this time of the year is so damn boring for me. Most people have already spent thier 2005 budgets or just don't give a damn and are getting drunk at Christmas parties every night so I'm stuck here with not much to do and yet I still need to hang around the office in case I'm needed.

Even the usual R and D I do at this time of the year is boring me right now. Anyone else having a slow, boring December day?

Swamped. Everyone scrambling to get work done. We have a half day (full pay) on the 23rd, and don't come back until the 3rd.

I'm scrambling more than most, as I may take all next week off as well.

I'm in finals which is unbearably slow for me. While I enjoy not having classes, this week is dragging by, even though I've slept half of it off.

No work unless it snows. Most boring time of the year. So, I was forced to make a rash decision.
