The First Official "Asleep Under My Desk" Contest!!!

There are a lot of bloggers that do contests as a way to promote their blogs.  And since I am such a lemming I decided it was about time I followed their lead and did my own contest.

So, I present:

The First Official* "Asleep Under My Desk" Contest!!!

Here is the deal:  I return to work tomorrow after not being there for four days because of Thanksgiving.  And I always hate to come back after time off for one reason: e-mails.  I hate having to go through all the e-mails that I received while I was away.  So in order to make this task a little more interesting, I want my readers to guess as to how many e-mails I will have waiting for me upon my return.

So guess the number of e-mails that will be waiting for me and post your answer in the comment section for all to see.  On Friday I will see who was the closest** to the number I received from when I left work on Wednesday, November 25 at 4:30 PM until I clock in at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow, Monday, November 30.  That person will win a fabulous prize pack of items which I keep close at hand to help survive my life in the office.

Any questions, contact me at TheOfficeScribe@yahoo.com.

Good luck, and god speed.

*Okay, I don't know of any unofficial contests that are out there using my name but I haven't looked at the entire Internet so who knows.

**  Closest means "closest without going over".  Yes, I am using The Price Is Right rules, so the last person may want to guess 1.

including junk email - 500

not including junk email - 54

Genesis, we have amazing spam filters at my office, so I don't get junk e-mails (except for a random Oprah newletter which I can't unsubscribe from) so I will mark down 54 as your official guess.

I'm guessing 32.

Wish I knew your usual weekend tally. But I'll go with 21.

I was just at work today (had to write nutrition support for a patient in ICU). So far only 2 for me while I was gone.

If I only had 2 waiting for me I would know something was wrong with my computer system at work!

most other people were probably off too so that would likely decrease the number (or it did for me, so I will guess it did for you as well)
