Friday Happy Hour

From Mental Floss: "Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else’s reply, whatever you want. On to this week’s topics of discussion…"

1. Let’s pretend you’ve been appointed calendar czar. Your first order of duty is creating one new federal holiday. Which new holiday would you propose? How should people celebrate?
~ My best friend had a weekly holiday for a while; she called it "Hater Monday." On Monday evenings, she would leave work and do all the things she hated but that had to be done: buy gas, shop for groceries, etc. She figured Monday was already ruined just by being Monday, so it was the perfect day for those errands.

2. What’s a recent example of horrible public behavior — kids or adults — you’ve witnessed?
~ I don't have enough time to write, nor do you have enough time to read, all the ridiculous things I've seen lately.

3. What’s the oldest piece of clothing you still wear regularly?
~ When I was a junior in high school (age 16) I purchased an embroidered Texas A&M sweatshirt for $65. My mother had an absolute fit when she found out, as I’ll be reminding her (again) when I wear it to her house later this year (I’m 34 now). I’m pretty sure I’ve gotten my money’s worth.

4. A couple weeks ago, I asked if any of you named your cars. Lots of people did. What other possessions have you given names? Houses? Laptops? Volleyballs?
~ Nothing I can think of right now - I'll ponder that for later.
