    That's right, I have a 5-DAY WEEKEND!!! There's a NJ teacher's convention in Jersey City, so all schools get tomorrow and Friday off. In addition, it's Veteran's Day on Monday, which we didn't have off but the teachers (who are in a contract dispute) petitioned to have it off, so we got it.

    What's really cool is that on Tuesday, I'm going to CBS studios in NYC for a field trip after being in a school for only an hour.

    So my point is, what the heck am I supposed to do? I've got extremely little homework, the weather sucks, I haven't bought a new videogame in a long time, and I don't have a license. I'm planning on hanging out with some of my friends for some of the break, including going to 8 Mile on Friday (if everything pans out just right), but that still leaves me with a day or two of nothing. Any suggestions? Anyone else have this weekend off?

    WHOOOOOHOOOO!!! Boy am I sick and tired of school, I'm so glad there is a break.
    As for things to do, you could:
    1. Get a good book(I suggest Dune, by Frank Herbert)
    2. Get a willing friend and watch movies from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. A friend and I did this several times and had a blast.
    Suggested lineup:
    Dreamscape
    Tron
    Dune
    Total Recall
    Psycho
    Saturday Night Fever
    3. Go mountain biking (a matter of whether you like mountain biking or not).
    Aw heck, just play videogames all weekend.[​IMG]

    Do you have any DVDs to catch up on? Counting TNG Season 5, Farscape Season 1, Babylon 5 Season 1, and Band of Brothers, I'm 90 episodes or approximately 60 hours in the red. Plus I haven't finished watching TNG Season 4 yet, and I've just barely started watching Ken Burns Civil War. And one of these days I'll watch my E.T. DVD.

    Dude, you have a home theater for a reason... [​IMG]
    Seriously I too will be getting the five day weekend, but it is under quite different circumstances:
    1. I'm sick, so I stayed home today and probably tomorrow
    2. I have to fly out to Tucson AZ for my friend's 30th BDay and the UCLA football game. Unfortunately it's really cold out there according to my friend, with a chance of rain Saturday, and as I said in #1, I'm sick.
    3. I fly out of LAX Saturday at 6:30am, and arrive back Monday at 7:30am...and I'm sick and how am I supposed to get up to make those flight times???
    I'm gonna need 5 more days to recover from these upcoming 5 days! Oh, and did I mention I have to move apts at the end of the month? (see my other thread). [​IMG]
    Enjoy your 5 days though!
