… because today is my last day before I go on yet another holiday!
Yes, that’s right, more days off.
That means I’ll of had a grand total of one month off over the past 2 months.
But it’s not all down to laziness …
Sure I had my American adventure, but the rest are pretty much all national/office holidays thanks to the Christmas and New Year period – and the upcoming week is due to the magnificence of Chinese New Year [Year of the Dragon if you were wondering] – so it’s not like I’m some spoilt little bastard living the dream life.
Besides, if anyone has actually been in China during New Year, you’ll know the amount of fireworks makes it literally feel like you’re in a war zone.
It’s not just a few organised bangs here and there, it’s literally a constant roar of untamed explosives morning, noon and night.
And not just part of the night … I mean the whole fucking night.
My cat took about 3 months to recover from it last year and it’s all going to happen again so whilst it means I get another 10 days holiday, it also means I won’t get any sleep so I’ll come back more cranky and tired than when I left.
Does that make it sound any better?
No, I didn’t think so … let’s face it, a holiday is a holiday regardless of noise, disruption and discomfort so I guess I’ll just have to take your abuse, safe in the knowledge that underpinning all of your insults in envy, pure and simple. Ha!
[By the way, Leon – one of my lovely colleagues – has set up a little blog that looks at brands that are trying to leverage/exploit Chinese New Year, from the good to the bad and the WTF were they thinking … it’s well worth checking out]
Back on the 30th, but be rest assured I’ll be thinking of you in the meantime … working*.
