Next week off

It's generally not necessary to get approval for vacations or other time off at Microsoft, but it's customary to give people a few days' warning rather than just disappear randomly.  Today I sent this mail to my team:

I’m gonna take next week (Thanksgiving week / 21-25 November) off and start using up some of this vacation time before it expires. Presumably I will take a short break from playing Skyrim at some point during that week to eat turkey but no guarantees.
It started out as a joke but at some point in typing the message I realized that it's not much of an exaggeration.  Since Thursday at 9pm, life has basically been Skyrim with the occasional interruption for sleep, meals, or work.
