Day 423 of 365 More.

One of my life goals is to someday celebrate Columbus Day. i’ve never had the opportunity. Not in school. Not in college. Not in any job I’ve ever held. I mean, we have a day where a clueless white pirate got lost at sea and brought syphilis to the new world. If that’s not worth a day off, I don’t know what is.

Well, on a good note, I am taking tomorrow off to be in the movie. That should be cool.

    Take a job in New York or any other city with a large, proud, politically influential Italian-American population. You’ll get every Columbus Day off. Also cannoli. 😉

    Most awesome!

    If you wanted to celebrate Columbus Day, you should have gone out and "discovered" something that belonged to somebody else already! Like your neighbor’s new car or something. That wouldn’t be stealing, just discovering! It’s all about the label!

    @sassyshannon999: thanks. You could probably still be an unpaid extra in the movie if you wanted, but it is a long, all day thing (we were there for like 13 hours) and its so far away for you that I don’t know if its worth it.

    You gotta get a job at a bank or for the government to get Columbus Day off.

    @MegaBee: I had a job at a bank (kinda). We were open. *sigh*

    @pinball215: thanks. I never really liked how this one came off actually. It just wasn’t quite what I wanted.
