That's the gov't for you...  
In a stunning error of accounting, and also somehow due to the fact that this fiscal year has 16 extra work hours in it than most, I suddenly have 48 hours of vacation/leave I have to take between now and October 31st.

I don't know how this happened, exactly. It's all very complicated math which they've e-mailed us with from back East, which my boss and I spent several hours today checking and rechecking. I'm a writer and an English major - remember all of my whining complaining about the science part of writing an SF novel? Yeah, math gives me a freaking headache.

But the numbers do appear to be accurate. Instead of being completely out of leave, with four hours I have to work overtime to make up, suddenly I have 6 days to use in the next seven weeks.

Just last week, I was complaining to my friend L about how nice it would be if I only had a day of leave left to use just for staying home and sewing. For once, the universe answered my request in an embarrassingly generous manner. Thank you, universe.

I'm taking off Halloween, for sure. That's the day of the masquerade, and I'm quite sure I'm going to need it. In the meantime, I may just be decadent and take off a couple of hours early this afternoon...
