And is anyone here? Or is it just me, All By Myself, as it is in the office?? Grumble grumble grumble. Well, maybe I can finally get some data analysis done without 10 phone calls, 15 emails, and 3 drop-ins to disrupt it...... Save me!

No, you're not alone. Our already-skeleton staff today is cut down even further due to the big storm yesterday. Our power at home is still out since 2:00 p.m. Christmas Day. My morning hot shower is to me like everyone else's morning coffee is to them - so, I'm here - cranky, feeling really not so fresh, and getting really tired of hearing everyone else complain about how their power was off for a few hours yesterday.

But, hey, we're professionals - right? So it's time to just suck it up, get the job done, and tell everyone else to stay away from me for more than one reason.

Yay, company!! I saw all the news reports on the big snowstorm - reinforcing why I am glad to live in TX now instead of CT. Yikes, what a mess. Hope your power comes back soon!! And I'm impressed that Dan can even rhyme at this hour. Must not have had too much Crown last night.

No Crown or anything to drink of the adult level beverages yesterday. I don't drink on Christmas day, just something I started several years ago.

I usually don't drink on New Year's day either, but that's because of New Year's Eve.

I'm here, too! Our leave year for 2003 started on December 6th - so if I take vacation I'm eating up my 2003 vacation time! Soooo- I'm usually here around the holidays! Snow kept us housebound yesterday - I was supposed to go to my sister's for dinner, but couldn't make it. Because we didn't plan to have dinner at home and all the stores were closed, Chistmas dinner was leftover spaghetti!!!
Still, it was a nice day - at least we had power!

We had a slight dusting of snow, but nothing to write home about.

I'm one of the few in our office today.

A beautiful snowy Christmas in Ohio! We ventured to church in the morning, but otherwise generally spent the day in front of the fireplace. (well, also shoveling the driveway and sidewalks!)

I'm here, too...dealing with printer deadlines for our latest acquisition Welcome Booklet and compliance sign-offs on some web-site advertising, plus the FDIC is coming in February so it is business as usual. No money left to shop the after-holiday sales, so it's just as well.

I'm here and that's because I wasn't the one person in West Virginia who won $315 million yesterday. Bummer!!!!

I'm here, too. Lucky for me, I'm in California so we did Christmas as usual yesterday. Someday, though, I'd like to experience a white Christmas!

I'm at work today. I am getting ready to change employers and am trying to tie everything up by year end. You may not hear from me for awhile, but I will be back. Happy New Year to everyone on BOL.

I'm at work today. I am getting ready to change employers and am trying to tie everything up by year end. Examiners are coming in January. Don't want them to think I didn't do my job just because I left. You may not hear from me for awhile, but I will be back. Happy New Year to everyone on BOL.

I'm here, too; however, I'm retiring next week and have loose ends to wrap up. OCC exam in January; new person coming on board sometime in January, so will have to "stay hooked" some through January. Sorry to leave all this fun and frivolity. I have really, really enjoyed BOL; learned much - used to think I was alone with some of my compliance issues here at our bank; however, through BOL I found out my issues were industry-wide. Be around a few days. After that, it's adios amigos. (My Spanish is terrible, but you get the message.)

Congratulations on your retirement! We're all jealous, you know. You can log back in and say hi once in a while, too.

I left for Christmas early to beat the Southwest's version of that storm that's making all our Northeastern friends miserable now. Just traveled about 135 miles into New Mexico, where home is, but the weather got progressively worse. It's not the amount of snow (only about 12" at home) but the wind that makes it treacherous. Those drifts aren't fun!

White Christmas's are beautiful, but I think I prefer good ole' brown West Texas/Eastern New Mexico ones. Much easier driving!

I probably will check in once in a while. Been in it too long (24 years) to quit "cold turkey".

What'll be nice is that you can keep up with all the new & changed regs, but not have to do a darn thing about it!

You know - it's really quite embarrassing to be here in Montana with no snow. We haven't seen white for days, and there is no prospect of snow for the near future. My Ohio born and raised husband has lived here for 15 years and doesn't believe me that we used to get real snow up here.

Just trying to tie up loose ends today getting ready for the barrage of end-of-year issues and reporting. Quiet and sparse staffing here, too. Maybe I can get some work done today!!!

I'm here too, but had to put on the shades to cover the bags under my eyes.

That's what I get for going to bed at 5:11am. and I don't even have any kids yet...
