What there should be more of in the world is bosses who allow their employees to leave at 3:30 on Fridays when the weather is nice. *nods* Just throwing that out there.
LOL! What kind of work do you do?
It's 4:30 here and I shall be heading home soon. One extra kid for the night, so far...
Ah, yes. Friday night sleepovers! I never really appreciated how nice it was of my parents and my friend's parents when I was a kid to allow those after a week of work!!
I work in fundraising at a private women's liberal arts college. I run our volunteer network and "friend-raise", mostly, but I do a bit solicitations (doesn't that sound naughty? Hee! It's so not that interesting) on the side.
This week, I've been a total slacker and reading/writing fanfiction at work. Because it is my firm belief I should be paid for that. And my volunteers have been driving me batty.

Cool! Women's liberal arts colleges figure largely in my fanfic. Well, one anyway. I have a friendship circle of women mutants who met at Bryn Mawr and are tangentially connected to the X-Men. They call themselves the Mawrter Mutant Underground.
And I totally agree you should be paid to read and write fanfiction. Would you like to give me your boss's contact info so I can explain this to her/him?
Hey yay! That's neat. Sometimes I think if our girls were mutants they'd spend a lot of time walking around going, "Um...like, what?" But I only say that because some of them are idiots. *giggles*
Many of them are bright, talented, and exceptional women and I'm proud to raise money for them.
Then there are some, like our work study student who needed an atlas to use Mapquest (O.o) that make me despair for today's youth.
Haha, that would be awesome! "Sionn needs to be able to research and write her fanfic, which features; dark erotica, slash, violence, angst, and alpha-male sex. It is very important she be paid for this." Could you get me a raise, too? That would so rule!!
