    Truthfully, if I found out one of my employees stayed home sick for something like this I would write them up. That is in the event they lie to me so they can stay home and watch some lame keynote that will be available to watch online after they get home.

    I know, it sounds harsh, but my work ethic seems to extend far beyond Apple's announcements.

    I'll fail my classes if I miss one day... I guess that I'll have to stick with making waffles and watch it on my iPhone... Sigh:(

    I won't skip class but I certainly won't be listening in my class - I'll be watching the keynote updates from my mbp!

    I'm self-employed; makes it really easy to block out a couple of hours on my schedule to dedicate to the keynote! :D

    I can't miss school, and my school has barely any Wi-Fi access and my Touch can't log onto their servers either. Luckily I'm borrowing my sister's laptop so I can find out what was announced and then order what I want. It sucks but I'll cope.

    Sure I'm excited but staying home seems like a waste of holiday!

    I'll get the updates when I get home (it starts at 1700 here anyway)

    Well I'm holidays anyway so I won't be needing to miss any school. Although, here (Australia) it starts at 4 am on Wednesday so I'll just wake up and straight away watch the keynote that will have been posted by apple. No 'macrumorslive' for me, just SJ goodness.

    It starts at 5:00pm in the UK, just as I finish work.

    I get back home by 5:15 just as the first feeds start to come through.

    I won't be skipping school for this. It's not THAT serious, besides websites will be detailing updates by the minute and you can always watch the keynote later.

    Whatever Apple announce will be available for order later in the day, the next day and so on...no need to skip just to be the first to click the buy now button. LAME.

    I am off work at 8am (CST), and it isn't until 11am here, so I'm going to stay up and watch it. But in the past I've called in sick!!! Better believe it.

    Nope, but I get to follow it at work. Lots easier than in class where I have to keep from paying too much attention.

    Ugh, we got a Nor'easter here in New England a day too early!

    Unfortunately today was the snow day, so tomorrow I'll actually have to go in and teach, rather than watch the keynote. Oh well! Happy Macworld Keynote Day everyone :)

    Personally, MW means a lot to me and this will be my 10th (TENTH!) MacWorld January, and like my 19th or 20th MacWorld total. So you know what, you people who have kids that get sick who expect to be able to call off from work, that's great, but MW is kind of like my kid. I don't have kids. Some people have kids, some have pets, and I have Macs. So how dare any of you for judging me. ;)

    (Only half-serious... but honestly, it's not your employer's business why you are having a 'personal' day. Jessica is actually an unethical boss for caring why her employees call off. Now, it is kinda nasty if they make up a story about being sick, but still, not her business as an employer.)
