    In our little group (myself, my husband and the 17 year old daughter of my co-worker) we will have two missing work and one missing school on Friday and I will also take Monday off to recuperate...Tuesday is my day off so no real work until Wednesday.

    They said, "Okay."

    I told my professor, "I'm going to Indio."

    He said, "Okay."
    That rules. Me too! I told my boss I needed Wednesday through Tuesday off for the festival and he's like, "Alright. We'll work it out." Surprisingly, I got away with only having to schedule two days of PTO.

    As for school, I find it much easier to just drop out entirely.

    Just kidding.

    Sorta.

    I remember the first year I went, I had finals the week after so I brought my books to study on the drive up. Pretty sure the only thing I used them for was propping up the turntables once we got to our condo...

    Fortunately I dont have Friday classes this quarter. But I do have a really intense midterm Monday morning. The drive back to Santa Barbara on Sunday night is gonna be a bitch.

    Me to boss: "I'm going to my cousin's cotillion on the Friday the 27th...Yeah, it's a Filipino tradition, it's for her 18th birthday...Driving down to LA Thursday, coming back Sunday."

    Boss to me: "What part of LA? I'm from around there."
    Me: "Uh, well actually it's a suburb of LA, I can't remember what it's called.."

    Prof. to me in email: "You've missed three classes. If you miss one more, I'll have to ask you to drop the class. Don't make me enforce this rule."
    Me: "But I'm going to a wedding next Saturday in LA. Please make exception."
    Prof: "Okay, just remind me a week in advance."

    Of course, this means I can't camp Sunday night, so I'll be driving back to the Bay Area after the show AGAIN. Dammit.

    I am skipping Fri and Monday. I'm missing one test on Monday and the week I get back is finals. So basically I'm walkin into finals unprepared but its all worth it for RAGE!!

    My excuse was very similar, I said I have to go to a convention for work, my company paid for me to go in advance. Knowing damn well I dont have a job. I miss one test and the day we get back its the beginning of finals. In the long run a couple shitty test scores is worth seeing RAGE!

    I'm actually not going to work Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday (I'm driving to Cali from TX) and then I won't have a job after I come back. It's not because of the show, it just happens that my work contract ends on the 30th.

    So I get to go spend tons of money and come back to no job.

    Living down the street from the polo fields has its benefits. I'm going to school to drop off homework then leaving. Friday that is.
