My co-worker has been off this week and wow, has the office ever been busy. I think people decide to report all of their IT issues when they know one of us is off. It is a good insane for the most part, the days are zipping by.
I am sure it is not as bad as it was back in October after the IT Conference in Ontario. As I am sure I have reported, we had a failure of our primary switch. SH was back in the office two days after it happened, I was on vacation that day and the entire next week. He has his hands full. Knock on wood, we have not had any failures, as yet…
Today and tomorrow morning, I am providing support for a Tax Preparers Conference in Calgary. They want me there, for some reason, all morning both days. I don’t think I am going to run into many issues, but I guess I will see. If there is going to be an emergency in the office, it will be one of these two days.
It is in one of the downtown hotels, I am not exactly sure which one, I do have the address. As I write this, I really should be in the shower getting ready to go, but, I have not finished my second coffee as yet. 🙂
Tonight, my little brother and I are heading to the Calgary Hitmen game. Not sure who they are playing. We are sitting in the second level, right on row 1 so that will be cool. I am sure they will be great seats. Many thanks to Calgary’s Big Brothers and Big Sisters and of course the donor of the tickets for them – it is much appreciated.
Tomorrow, breaking my tradition of not going to holiday type parties, I am off to the BDO Holiday Party. It is formal attire, suit and tie type thing. Well, I do have a suit, likely out of style by now, especially given the high standards of Calgary. I dropped into Moore’s the other day and wanted a sport jacket. I am a 48 regular, off the rack type of guy – it is nice, I don’t need any alterations. Anyway, I was looking through and found a REALLY nice jacket – looked at the price tag and it was $499. Ummmm, no. Then I turned it over, it was on clearance for $119. Wow, amazing deal. Picked up two shirts, two ties and two scarves and it came out to $369 or so – still a $130 less than the original price of the jacket. I am sure I will post of pic of me and my handsomeness in the next few days.
No plans for the weekend other than starting my packing for the move next weekend. It will be here before I know it and I have a fair amount to do. I am really looking forward to it. I think I will take the dogs to the dog park, likely the new one near my new place – make sure they like it. I am sure we will still visit the old park since it is so large and open.
Anyway, if I don’t get going, I am never going to be able to get my day going. Hope yours is good.
