Call in 'Slick'

You're back from the holidays and you've already begun to dread coming into the office? Our solution? Use those sick days that you can't take with you when you leave this job. Pick the day a week out and make sure that you plan work and meetings accordingly (without being too obvious, of course). Taking just four days a year works out to one long weekend every quarter. After all, there has to be some retaliation to no year-end bonuses right?

FYI offers a free '09 Sick Day Calendar with ideal days and potential excuses.
