What am I Doing this Patriot’s Day?

Let It Begin Here!: Lexington & Concord: First Battles of the American RevolutionIt’s Patriot’s Day today in Maine, which means I don’t have to go to work. Why do we celebrate this holiday? To commemorate the battles of Lexington and Concord. So first off, thanks to the British, for making this holiday possible. I suppose to celebrate, I really ought to be joining the Tea Party or something, but I think I’ll pass this year.

Instead, I’m going on a hike. To a waterfall somewhere. And maybe have a cookout.

I’d get a bunch of stuff done around the house, but I had the bright idea of starting a stone wall on Saturday. Denisa and I got a fair bit of it done, and then my back reminded me that it’s really not into lifting heavy rocks for long periods of time. Mustn’t make the back angry. So no big chores today.

I need to get some writing done, but I have no idea what I’ll write. I suppose I’ll work some on Tarnhelm, since the Q&A is done, the next edit for Vodnik isn’t here yet, and I have no idea what else I’d write about.

This was a fascinating blog post, I know. Basically, just a long way of saying “Have fun working today, suckers. I’ve got the day off.”
