Good thing it isn't a competition.
I really hope that the world is not ending today. Like most days, I will be sitting in front of a computer today trying to convince it to do my bidding using cryptic instructions. I would much rather be Sasquatch Hunting, but those computers are not going to program themselves.
If I had chosen to skip work today, here is what I would be doing:
