Vacation time is over, no more laziness

Football is bad for dogs. Well, at least this dog. I also blame his owner, which is me.

I just had seven straight days off of work. It was wonderful. The long hours of work during the football season are always tough on a sports staff. Not working for an entire week is much easier.

The highlights of my stay-at-home-vacation (Some people call it a stay-cation. I will not participate in such buffoonery.): hosting a Turkey dinner cooked at my house but, most importantly, not by me (thank you, Fiona); staying up until 5 am on a nightly basis, leading to going several days in a row without seeing sunshine (it’s like being a vampire without the blood drinking and mystical powers); completing 2 to 3 actual useful tasks (that way I don’t feel like my life is totally without merit: “See, I cleaned out the garage enough to park my car in there, AND I did two loads of laundry! I’m not a total drain on society!”); and taking my dog on several walks (Charlie likes football, but he doesn’t like the resulting lack of free time for his designated walker. I made up for it by fattening him up on bones and food off my plate. A good deal for both sides.).

Anyway, the vacation is over. I’m back at work. No more laziness, but at least my job is covering sports. Could be worse.

You would have been better served going to Vegas for a few days out of the seven. Plenty more things to do there till 5 in the morning.
