Surprising abundance

I like to travel, although more often than not I do long-weekend trips-- a three-day weekend here, a four-day weekend there. Still, I'm always skating on the hairy edge of my available vacation, and there's never enough of it. At one job, I had an interesting deal: I accrued no vacation, and they didn't pay attention to how much time I took off. It worked for me, and although one executive tried to talk me out of it once, it worked for them.

My startup only recently started reporting accrued vacation time on paystubs. Much to my great surprise, I've accrued two whole weeks of time off. Two weeks! Other than BARGE and a couple of days here and there (Portland in March for a day, a couple days during the WSOP), I don't have any specific plans for any of it. I honestly can't remember the last time I had this much vacation banked... it's a very strange feeling.
