I do!

Except it's not because of Chavez. Unfortunately, my "weekends" change every week.

Friday...it's the "other" Sunday.

I do, but I've had enough latin america protests to celebrate for other reasons. Heading to Jackson California for the Pardee Party. 100km of possible rain showers, wild flowers, wet bike clothes, and hopefully a lot of wine tasting. If it's raining too much. . .then lots, and lots, and lots of wine tasting.

I'm hoping for the glorious without the scarey puffy rain guy. I'm a very wimpy fair weather rider who can barely handle some snow showers or quick summer mistings. I like the smiley happy sunshine guy. But, one way or the other we're going to make a party of it.

Good Friday morning Snap!
No holiday today in Sweden, but we do have Name days. Each day is dedicated to a different name, the person with that name can celebrate it in some way, usually by getting a card from family members, are a phone call to wish them well, something small that does not usually involve money or buying presents. Today's name is Ester. Unfortunately, Snapdragen (or your real name, which btw I know...hehehe ;)) was nowhere to be found in the Swedish calendar. Sorry about that.
On another note, Anneli mixed up the dates this morning and thought it was April Fool's Day. Of course, I fell for it hook, line and sinker until I looked at the calendar behind her and figured it out. She told me that the Prime Minister was coming today to the university where she works, to her dept because he had heard about the special research she doing. Me, be the dutz that I am, said, "Really, you never said anything about this before. Wow, that's great honey." "Oh oh??". Tomorrow is revenge time...
Cheers, Wayne

No for Cesar

Yes for Casmir. Have you all heard of Casmir Pulaski? Casmir Pulaski day is a holiday in IL.

I think they had to pike a Polish dude, and Casmir was the first one that popped into anybody's head.

I'm off on sat. have a surprise 50th party to go to, and then back in the ER for 15 hours on Sunday.........I hate my life sometimes, OH, and my wife is pissed off at me cause she'll hardly see me this weekend.

Yup

Spring break starts at 2:20pm today. I'm off Saturday and Sunday, as well as the entire week next week. However, it's going to be a busy week.

I have a MD appt. on Monday and after that I'm going to do some data entry stuff for my computer inept realtor friend. I'm working for my old doc on Tuesday and Wednesday to earn some extra cash, then taking off early Thursday morning with the new boy to do some hiking on the AT before coming back Friday afternoon/evening so he can go to work. I do still have to go to class on Monday and Wednesday evenings, though.
