I'm at work today keeping this country going (or so I keep telling myself). Just wondering who else has to or wants to work today?

I'll be working today as well, from 1 till 11 keeping my bank account in the green. I enjoy working public holidays, happily worked Christmas day last year.

I'm working. As an independent contractor who gets paid by the hour, I find it very hard to take time off. This is doubly true considering I get paid in USD, and therefore my income has taken a real hammering since 2009.

Self employed and all of my customers are overseas, so I'm hard at work today (although I started late!)

Despite the beautiful weather here, I'm very happily working all day for a volunteer-run website.

I'm paid in GBP  --- nearly halved in value .    

It annoys me watching politicians and local body officials taking big rises when my income has halved.

I've been thinking about throwing in the towel lately, and getting a govt. job.

I forgot all about Waitangi day, I am travelling around the frozen continent of Europe, currently frozen in Belgrade with more snow falling.

In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.
