It's a national holiday here in T&T today. Republic Day which, as the name suggests, celebrates the country becoming a republic way back when. If you ask me, there should be some kind of rule against allowing holidays to be on a Saturday. Except for the few who actually work on a Saturday, who really benefits, right?
Not that is actually affects me either way since I'm still sans job. I've been kinda quite this week, I know. I guess sometimes it's hard not to let the whole unemployment thing bug me. But let's face it, that's not why you're here so I'm not going to whine about it (much). I've still done a thing or two, all the same.
Let's start with what I've been up to here on my blog:
- As some of you already know, I've designed an early warning system of sorts for my blog in the from of crudely drawn stick toon graphics. This I posted about on Tuesday.
- On Wednesday I passed out an award one of my homies, Paul, gave me. There were actually two awards, but I was feeling lazy and linked a previous post where I had already received the second one.
Meanwhile, on Sprocket Ink:
- On Tuesday, I wrote about a group of fed up housewives using what could be the ultimate weapon of mass distraction to finally bring an end to war on their island. Those guys didn't stand a chance.
- Thursday we looked at one country's ingenious method for preventing the zombie apocalypse. This could really be the answer. Now, if we can only learn from their one misguided error.
And that's it. That's my week in a nutshell. Feel free to click on any one of the numerous links above to catch up on anything you may have missed. I think I'm going to take this weekend to get myself in perspective and over the sucky mood I'm in.
