Holidays: Oct. 22nd - 28thPatrick Lancer, Saturday October 21st, 2006
Here at Overdue Karma, we celebrate life everyday (no, really, we do!) but here are some excuses for you to cut loose and take a day off from work this week:

Although it may be redundant, this Sunday is another day (other than Presidentís Day) when we can celebrate our nationís leader. Thatís right, itís National Nut Day! I can only conclude thatís the purpose after a lengthy search turned up no information on Americaís nut. My best leads point to either the Pecan or the Peanut. As we all know, the Peanut is not actually a nut, but rather a legume. As for the Pecan, no nation would voluntarily select such a repulsive edible as its patriotic nut.
Monday is Sweetest Day. Itís not a day that is particularly sweet; after all, it is a Monday. It is rather a day to celebrate the sweetheart in your life. It was originally a day for the privileged to give sweets and small gifts to those less fortunate. Now it is just another day for candy, as usual. The day is struggling to compete for popularity with a similar holiday in February.
On Tuesday, National Bologna Day coincides with United Nations Day. I wonder what kind of message this is supposed to send. Is the UN a powerless coalition which is no doubt seen as bologna by other nations? Is United Nations Day bologna? Is this whole comparison bologna?
Wednesday is ďPunk for a DayĒ Day. Thatís right. Itís time for you to get that tattoo of a snake curling through the eyes and mouth of a skull. You know who have always wanted one. Just be careful you donít choke yourself with that studded collar now.
This Thursday has nothing more to celebrate than... mules. But letís do just that. Mules are the most dependable slaves the human population has ever had. This is mainly because they are infertile and have no gender. Without a sex-drive, family, or opposable thumbs, they are pretty much bound to carry us up and down the Grand Canyon for all eternity. Thank you, Mules!
So I was browsing the internet, looking for holidays that occur on Friday, the 27th of October. I took a break and made a sandwich which was cool. When I came back, I found that Friday is ďTell a StoryĒ Day! I was so excited! Uh, yah, then I found $5 in my pocket.
Well, Saturday has rolled around again and itís time for a break... But wait! Saturday is ďMake a DifferenceĒ Day! You need to go out and help your neighbors! If youíre feeling motivated, then go have fun with that. If you are like me, you will wait until your neighbors come to help you.
Until next week Ė Have a blast celebrating life!
