I don't want to talk about it.

Courtney said...

Yes, AND I have class this evening. Isn't this a holiday? Is this any way to honor a dude who accidentially ended up in America? sigh.

SngngMSW said...

Yes. And although I would like the day off, there's a part of me that is happy not to be celebrating Christopher Columbus, who not only DIDN'T "discover" America, but also slaughtered thousands of Native Americans, brought disease to the continent, and was a greedy colonizing asshole.

Scottie said...

Yes, I do. And I'll probably be putting in two days worth of work today...it's not fun.

andrew said...

Define "work". I do have to be present in the office, yes.

But, we traded our days off. I have to work on Columbus Day and Veterans Day. In turn, I don't have to use the day after Thanksgiving and the day after Christmas as vacation days.

Cate said...

i do have to work. i think my liver could use the day off though.

Justin said...

that would be a, yes.

K8 said...

nope. our CEO gives us all these bs holidays off because it's easier for the working parents. nice.

John said...

I, like Cate and Karen here, have to work as well.

I should probably get started, but I think there's a good chance I've got a new gmail or facebook's newsfeed has a nice lil' tidbit about a person I haven't talked to in a decade.

I SWEAR I'll start working at 11am.

sara said...

beth r. said...

I was supposed to, but took off. Ha! AND I'm supposed to have class tomorrow night, but it's been canceled. Double Ha!!

beenu said...

Sarah said...

no work for me...but i'm sick, so i wouldn't have gone to work anyway. so instead i'm missing a beautiful day off...sucks. i'm so pissed, but quietly, my head hurts.

Laura said...

of course. I'm a federal govt. contractor. we work when they don't, which also includes federal holidays. ;-)

tamika said...

No work today! I'm spending the day baking and reading.

I'm conflicted since Columbus wasn't actually a good dude, but I don't want to think about it on my day off.
