Am I the only one who hates holidays?

I worked twelve straight days and finally I get a weekend to myself. All i want to do is relax, but I end up running around like a chicken with my head cut off and someone always feels left out or gets their feelings hurt. Then the preparations, get gifts, go pick up the ham, clean the house. It never ends!

Holidays were fun as a kid, but as an adult they're a big chore and a bunch of obligations.

I feel as if James Rolfe could make this into a "You know what's BS?" episode.

Well, if it makes you feel better we're entering a barren wasteland of holidays, with nothing coming up until Memorial Day at the end of May.

Actually it wasn't so bad. Saw some family, ate some good food. Even snuck in a game of MLB The Show while my wife was getting ready. I'm just the kind of guy who you have to coax out of the house because I never want to go anywhere, but I usually end up having a good time and am glad I went.

The worst Easter though was in 1989. We were at my grandparents' house in Iowa and when I woke up that morning, Super Mario 2 was in my Easter basket. Unfortunately my NES was all the way back in Chicago.
