Staying focused at work is about the hardest thing in the world right now.  Thursday afternoon I'm leaving for a big Christmas party and I'm not returning to work until the second week in January.  At this point my brain is pretty much running on fumes... maybe at 15% capacity or so.  Whether I want it or not, my mental energies are entirely devoted to wishing that I were already on vacation.  I've got a ton of important work I'd like to get done over the next few days, but I don't think it's going to happen.  I'm like a kid during the last week before summer vacation—maybe elementary school, before such things as finals.  Nothing useful is learned that week.

For the curious, I was actually really productive on Wednesday, the day right after writing this, and I got basically everything I wanted to get done before vacation done by the end of the day.
