I'm one of about 15 people at work today. Any other day, there are 10,000 people working at this complex. This time last year, I was a sub-contractor forced to take a day of unpaid leave

This is the best day to be at work DC is pretty much closed, so I made it to work in record time

On the way in, I heard a news blurb that the Federal government might force employees to take 10 unpaid holidays next year. I'll believe that when I see it.

At work. Surprisingly more people were on the train this morning than Friday. I don't know what the hell is up with that.

You shouldn't be able to get Columbus Day off if you can't spell it.

Columbus Day
The fact that it's Columbus Day has reminded me how much I hated living with Christopher Columbus in college.

Me: Columbus, can you give me a ride to the airport?

Columbus: Sure.

Me: Why are you turning left? It's a few blocks away on the right.

Columbus: The Italians are going that way already. This is my secret route. We'll arrive in thirty to sixty days.

Later:

Me: Columbus, I really don't think this is the airport. This is a field.

Columbus: Then it must be India.

Me: You think everything is India.

Columbus: Look, I have found a parrot. If this were not India, would there be parrots?

Me: You brought that parrot with you.

Columbus: No, I didn't.

Me: Yes, you did.

Columbus: Fine. Is it a crime that I love parrots?

Me: Now we're stranded, and I've missed my flight. Again.

Columbus: That's okay. Where were you going? Let's drive the opposite way.

Me: ...

Columbus: I have a GPS, but it always underestimates the distance involved because it is based on the Ptolemaic model.

Me: Columbus!

Columbus: Get in the Pinto.

Morning:

Me: Columbus, can you pass me the sugar?

Columbus: Sure. By reaching to this side of the table, I can eventually reach the sugar, which is on that side of the table.

Me: The table is flat. Why don't you reach across the normal way, Columbus?

Columbus: You just think the table is flat. Here. Here is the sugar.

Me: This isn't sugar. This is the cat.

Columbus: I have relabeled the cat Sugar. I believe it to be sugar. Like sugar, it is something that I found on the table, and you can put it on your food. I think this is perfectly adequate.

Me: ...

Columbus: Not convinced? Here is gold.

Me: What?

Columbus: This gold was in the sugar when I found it. Surely this must be the sugar.

Afternoon:

Me: Columbus, that's my sweater!

Columbus: No, I claimed that sweater for Spain.

Me: You can't just waltz in here and take my stuff.

Columbus: I'm not taking it. I'm discovering it.

Me: Whatever. I'll go sit on the couch.

Columbus: You can't use that couch any more. I named it Queen Couch The Second Of Spain. It belongs to Spain.

Me: That couch has been in my family for centuries!

Columbus: Sorry, I discovered it! Also, I have a gun.

Me: What?

Columbus: It is like a spear, but it spits fire.

Me: I know what a gun is! Columbus, this is my stuff! This is armed robbery!

Columbus: I also have a horse!

Me: How did you get a horse here? We're on the third floor!

Columbus: I brought the horse that you might fear me.

Me: I'm actually terrified.

Columbus: Also, here are some plague germs. I found lying around. You can keep them.

I do. Working for a school district has it's perks. I work in IT, normally we work all summer, and through the major vacations like xmas break, spring break. Rumor is that we will be getting two weeks off paid for christmas break this year. That way they can turn the heat way down and the computers/lights off and save more money then it costs to pay us.

I've cleaned out the desk, and taken out the trash. Not much remaining that I can do today. Still, I'd rather be bored than slammed.

I honestly don't know when Columbus Day is this year, that's how little bearing it has on my life. Is in the 8th or the 15th?
