The long weekend for Thanksgiving was pretty relaxing. I did have to work on Sunday, it was not busy. I did a couple of restore requests first thing and then didn’t have much to do until later in the day, I helped a user who was in complete panic mode. It is nice to be able to resolve a simple issue for someone and make their day. It is also nice that I have not forgotten ALL of my technical skills since I am no longer a tech.
I watched baseball. The Rockies got knocked out of the playoffs, 3 games straight and the third and final game, at home, where Rockies fans were hoping their offense would come alive was the worst game of the series. A 6-0 loss to the Brewers who now advance to the NLCS against the Dodgers. All I can say is I hope the Brewers put the same beat-down on the Dodgers that they did to the Rockies. The Astros also swept their series against the Indians, it wasn’t even a fair match-up. I don’t particularly care for the Indians anyway so congrats to the Astros. They now wait until the Red Sox – Yankees series wraps up to see who they play.
Speaking of that series, the Red Sox ground the Yankees into some sort of paste yesterday, 16-1 was the final. I am hoping that the Red Sox can eliminate the Yankees tonight, as is, likely, 90% of baseball fans. There’s a lot of hate for both teams but the Yankees are much easier (for me, anyway) to hate. Either way, it will set up an exciting ALCS, I am sure. The Astros are ready and waiting and eager to repeat as World Series champions.
I did not have turkey for Thanksgiving, I didn’t make it into town to buy a turkey breast or anything. That’s OK, I guess I didn’t feel like going out.
It’s a short 3-day work week this week as I am off on Friday. I am covering for a co-worker on Saturday though, so that puts a damper on the long weekend, but I am off again Monday. I don’t normally work any weekend shifts, but I am covering since there were no other volunteers. I am ok with that.
Well, it’s the beginning of another week, for us Canadians anyway. Enjoy yours.
