Distributed donut day

Sun Ireland is having a donut day today, to mark yesterday's decent earnings results. There's a bit of a flaw, though... I work at home on Wednesdays, and we weren't given any warning that it would be today (although we knew one was coming). In fact, Sun positively encourages people to work at home as often as possible, so somehow, a donut day doesn't seem like a very inclusive reward scheme any more. If anyone has any better ideas, let me know and I'll pass them on to Scott :)

How about getting a voucher sent to your home on donut day, which you can redeem at a local donut store? (And, if there's no local donut store, a pint of guinness instead.)

Great minds think alike... that was exactly my suggestion :) (Except I thought about just sending the vouchers by email, so you could print them out...) I guess even that scheme kind of depends on everyone \*having\* a local donut store, though... we don't really have anything like (say) Dunkin Donuts here in Ireland. Other than supermarkets, the nearest thing we have to donut-selling chains are Burger King and McD's, and they don't really do proper donuts here either.
