Vacation, All I Ever Needed
I took the day off today!
It is a federal holiday - Columbus Day. But not everyone gets today off. In fact, I've never had Columbus Day off as an official holiday since I've been a working stiff.
But this year, I took the day off!!
Coming from a person who hasn't had a day completely without work (including weekends) since July, I'm not quite sure what to do with myself.
So far today, I slept late, went for a run in Central Park, and went through some old DVDs, to decide what to do with them - keep them, toss them, donate them, etc.
The Husband is addicted to his kung fu movies. It's been difficult to pry them away from him.
He also wouldn't let go of his copy of The Last Seduction. Even though he's no longer a horny 19-year-old, and the wisdom of time and age have convinced him that Linda Fiorentino is, in fact, not that hot.
"Why do you need to hang onto this movie?" I asked, puzzled.
"It's important art!" he insisted. "You just don't undertand...Besides, it was filmed in upstate New York, where I went to college. So I have to keep it! For cultural reasons!" #
