Okay, here's a good one for all of you chained to your desks in the middle of the week on a beautiful summers day:

My GF discovered she has an additional five weeks vacation due her! She works at the local medical center, and during a performance review in conjunction with a promotion it was discovered that when she transferred to her current job from a position with a healthcare company affiliated with the center, the time she worked at the previous job wasn't credited towards calculating her benefits.

As a result, she has 200 extra hours of vacation coming, in addition to her normal three weeks for this year. The company has a limit on accumulated vacation time, and a "use it or lose it" policy in that they will not buy back the time. She's thinking of taking every Friday off from now through next Spring.

What would you do with a "bonus" five weeks vacation time?

SB (never worried about "vacation" time)
