Caf, I wish it'd work that way. my four hour shift is actually there to cover shifts so that others working can take a lunch, which really makes no sense, because we're made to work alone all the time.
Really, just pointless hours. Not televised as far as I know... and no TV here anyway.
I'm hoping maybe the parade starts earlier this year so I can sneak a few minutes of it.
So basicly everyone is at the parade...I guess no one will notice when you're not at work, since everybody is at the parade!
Solution 2; Use a huge telescopic lens so you can take photos of the parade from a distance while you're at work...
