Since I will be away from my computer, also know as AFK for those of you who are internet savvy, on Veteran's Day, I thought I would say a few words about it.

I was never deployed during my seven years in the army, so I don't really feel like I deserve to have a special day off more than anyone who was deployed, but being in the military was a serious pain in the ass sometimes, so I always get annoyed at non-veterans that get the day off when I never have. This will be my first veteran's day off, but it doesn't count because I'm taking vacation. I decree that, from now on, every veteran's day all bars will serve their drinks at happy hour prices to all veterans. And finally, last night, my daughter Sydney called me and interviewed me because she is doing a report on me for veteran's day. Is that the coolest thing you have ever heard? I feel famous! ;)

I work for the government, and I STILL don't get the day off.

Around here, the county gets it off, but the city doesn't. I work for the county, but the prosecutor's office I deal with is the City Attorney, not the County Prosecutor. So all of those courts are open, even though they're technically BOTH County courts. It's confusing and convoluted and I hate it. The felony attorneys in our office get the day off.

That has ALWAYS bothered me, my dad was in Vietnam and has never ONCE had the day off. I like to send him a card on veterans day :)

Veteran's day is tomorrow?

Sorry, it is not celebrated at public universities (at least UF and LSU)...
