July 2, 2006
No rant today. In fact, I'm going to be taking the next few days off, and let's face it, if you have nothing better to do on a glorious 4th of July extended weekend than read a law blog, you need to reassess your priorities.
Speaking of extended weekends, you ever notice how, when a holiday falls on a Tuesday, especially in the summer, it winds up blowing over a week all to hell? It starts the previous Friday, when everybody figures they might as well get a jump-start on the holiday by leaving early on Friday. Nobody's going to go to work on that Monday, and by the time Wednesday rolls around, everybody's figuring, well, it's only a three-day week, we're not going to get anything done anyway.
But for those who think there's nothing like a four-day weekend, take heart. In 2007, Christmas falls on a Tuesday, which means that New Year's falls on a Tuesday, too. The following year, Christmas would normally fall on a Wednesday, but since 2008 is a leap year, the extra day pushes it back to Thursday, and we wind up with another set of four-day weekends.
The fact that I would take the time to calculate when Christmas falls over the next three years should tell you all you need to know about my work ethic.
Anyway, I'll be back with a new post on Wednesday. In the meantime, in the next two days, I'm going to do what Rush Limbaugh does when he goes on vacation. No, I'm not going to take unprescribed medication with me, I'm going to run "replays" of past posts here.
See you on Wednesday.
