    Re: What will be your excuse?

    No excuse here, not even telling my boss. Just not going to show up to work at all on Thursday. I usually have to work at around 8:30 or 9, but have been showing up at 5:30 the last couple days to put in extra hours to make up for Thursday. I'll get my 40 by end of business Friday in time for the KU game.

    Re: What will be your excuse?

    These are the times when it's awesome that we have a 50" tv with DirecTV in our break room.

    I already usually take my lunch from 1-2, & I can meander in & out for the rest of the game.
