Tuesday's Holidays

First of all, it is National Thrift Shop Day. As a great believer in thrift, I am liking that holiday. However, our celebration will more likely be on the weekend, when I have time to pursue thrift.
It is also The Meaning of "Is" Day. The idea behind this is that "is" is a really hard word to define without using the word "is" in your definition. If you are brain dead like I am tonight, you may want to save this holiday until a day such as National Beer Drinkers Day or Marguerita Day, where you can ponder the meaning of "is" after you are loosened up!
Today was our first day back at school, just the teachers. Just a whirlwind day of meetings, lunch provided by PTA, announcements, inducting the new teachers,smile for the camera for ID badges, and all school employees get on the stage for a staff picture. No bunny ears, no closed eyes, no nose picking. It was a tough job to get all of us smiling at the same time. Meanwhile, my shirt was dirty from unpacking boxes and my deodorant had given out about 3 hours earlier. On to tomorrow.

Remember Bill Clinton's deposition in the Monica Lewinski case? "It depends on what your definition of is is."
