I went hiking/camping at Starved Rock State Park!

It was a bit chilly camping (dropped into the low 30s Sunday Night), but we made it.

It's Thanksgiving! I am eating turkey, mashed potatoes, squash, and not eating whatever-that-thing-is-that-Aunt-Em-made. I'm grateful for friends and family, including my woot family, and for my little four-legged, squirrel-chasing, heart-melting loves.

I don't celebrate Columbus Day. I work.

If Columbus only had speed boats....

I'm going to drive around aimlessly, until I find a house that looks good. Then, I'm going to go into it and tell the people inside "I live here now."

Well, I went to work at o-dark thirty (at a financial institute) and am now enjoying the remainder of the day off.

-not all banking people get the day off today

I'm going to sit around with my Viking friends and point and laugh at Columbus.

@stile99: As an Official Indigenous Person, I was going to say that I was going to spend the day avoiding smallpox blankets and hoping nobody adversely possesses my home. I see you're well on your way, though.

I am working nine and a half hours (the length of the store day where I work) because the manager took the day off to be with her kids. As she should.

Deleting a large amount of Columbus Day sales out of my inbox, apparently. And working.

I plan on celebrating by getting in my large ship, getting lost, then claiming I'm right for hundreds of years.....

@bsmith1: And all Federal and most State employees as well (depends on the state.)

Only bankers and postal workers get today off. (lucky sobs)

Out sick. So maybe @stile99 is my neighbor...

I plan to throw some smallpox-infected blankets over the fence then steal my neighbors' land.

What? Too soon?
