    I think I will give myself the entire weekend off, including Monday.

    Well its also Passover and the first two days of it Jews pretty much have to keep to sabbath'ish rules. My gym was like a ghost town yesterday, I didn't understand it so I just wrote it off as Easter/Passover combo.

    I work the weekend. My mom is planning to give me a basket filled of chocolate for Easter but I allways keep telling her that a Borders or Gamestop gift card allways works better for me.
    There are people who love me and there are people who hate me. I will take care of those people who love me and the rest can burn in hell.

    Oh, and still my mom wants me home by 5 for Easter dinner with my relitives. Okay. Let me see...

    - An aunt and uncle who like to play with their money because their buisness is booming.

    - An aunt and uncle who are born again Christians and like to force their beliefs.

    - My brother and his wife: two perkey newlyweds.

    - Two cousins around my age who have been having relationship issues.

    - Two younger cousins who are hell on wheels.


    God love all of them but FUCK THAT NOISE! I'm eating Easter ham in my room for piece and quiet.

    I forgot when Easter is. I know it's in April.

    It's actually a pagan holiday. Easter egg hunts were fun when me was a little one.

    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

    we usually go to church on wed night and sun morning but not on easter sunday. Its just too much of a fashion show so we just skip services and celebrate at the house.

    If you mean his old self... Yup.

    He was an absolute thorn in my ass till he met his wife.

    She's a pretty cool chick I say.

    My father used to get me a Kung-Fu movie and a Concert Movie for Easter, usually Hendrix, Clapton BB King, Floyd or Led Zeppelin, later years it was jazz greats......maybe I should treat myself and download a couple.....

    I picked my girls up from O'Hare International in Chicago on Friday night as they were returning from Spring Break in Florida. Now I used to fly out of O'Hare all the time when I was living in Europe and the place was always a zoo. This past week when I took them to the airport and then again when I picked them up, the place was a virtual ghost town. Never in my life have I seen the place so deserted! I guess the economy is to blame!

    I think the Terrorism Security has kept numbers low in Airports, people can't walk and wait with their loved ones to the gates anymore, you don't have transients in there either. People show up just when they need to and then move on, cars can't sit by the corner you'er either loading or moving on no waiting even for a second or the 10 Airport Cops standing watch will start blowing whistles and motioning for you to move on. I had to pick my GF up at 6:30am one morning and there were only 2 cars on the whole strip for pick-ups so I decided to stop and wait 2 minutes because my GF only had a carry-on. I was there no more than 30 seconds and three cops started blowing their whistles and waving their hand to get moving. It was utterly ridiculous....
