Columbus Strikes Again

Posted in Whatever Else on October 8th, 2012 by bill

Today it happened again…I walked the four long blocks to the post office to pick up my accumulated mail for the last week, some of which I really wanted, only to discover that the damn thing was closed for Columbus Day. This is why C. Day sucks so bad: it’s so unimportant that you can never remember when it is, and yet a big enough deal to fuck with your life.

Well…I’ve already written this blog entry, back in 2006, so no need to do it again. I will just note that Columbus Day is apparently always on the same day as Canadian Thanksgiving, and that I wonder what that means.
