I know I have written this before, but I never understood the whole "TGIF" sentiment when I worked as a freelance interpreter. I worked nights, weekends, holidays, whatever. My schedule was unpredictable, so I just enjoyed time off when I had it and when I didn't, I didn't.
Now that I work in an office and I go to the same place every day and do the same thing - very little schedule variation or event variation, I understand TGIF more. It doesn't represent a dislike of the job or of work at all. It is just an acknowledgement that it has been 5 days since the last day of rest. And more are needed. That's all.
I worked LATE tonight, but I finished all my 2010 wrap-up items and am on target to keep up in 2011. :) Me likey.
I'm happily tired and off to watch a couple of DVD episodes of the last season of "24". It is really like crack. Seriously.
