If you were to e-mail me over the holidays, you’d get a response like this. Unfortunately, I had to “tone it down” a bit (couldn’t make it as funny as I would have liked).

Gaddis Subject: Out of Office AutoReply: [This message was generated by an automated system.] Greetings and salutations! I am out of the office and my current whereabouts are unknown. Even I do not know where I am. I am not *really* on vacation (as in, I'm not really going anywhere far away), but as far as responding to email is concerned, I appear to be well outside the solar system. Other than December 29-30, I will not be around until January 5th. Boiler plate: If you have any special needs, please contact the Help Desk. They will have the tools and skills needed to get you back on track. If you are the Help Desk, then please contact Kevin or Ben. If you *ARE* Kevin or Ben: stop, take a deep breath, and reassess things. If you are still hyperventilating, then go ahead and break the glass (a.k.a. call my Blackberry)! Happy holidays!
