So How’d You Celebrate President’s Day?

So, with a holiday most associated with weird sales at the mall and made up special deals at auto dealerships.. how did you, the loyal DC Metblogs reader, celebrate President’s Day?

Gen. George Washington is celebrating his 275th birthday this Thursday, and Mount Vernon is gussying itself up for the occasion. This past Sunday, an President’s Day/Black History Month themed American Dad aired with guest shots of Abe Lincoln and the fabled Smithsonian Peanut Museum.

A number of folks from the DC area seemed to drive as far away as they could in one day and headed to an almost perfect day on the ski slopes, something January (or December, November.. oh, heck you get it) never offered. Some folks probably just bummed it at home (or at work for those private sector folks) and had their own “Butt-Numb-A-Thon” watching hours of TV or Movies. (But remember kids, you can catch all the Best Picture Nominees in one twelve hour session (yes, twelve) this Saturday at selected theaters…your own personal Oscar-themed “Butt-Numb-A-Thon”)

    Unfortunately, I had to work. We are very short staffed, so this is what I get for going out on my own. Life in a start-up.

    The most interesting people I rote up on the ski lifts with was a Diplomat from the Spanish Embassy. He was trying to get as much “USA” (with his daughters) in as possible with the last remaining year of his 5 year rotation.

    He was happy that everybody he’s met in the U.S. has been nice and friendly to him and his family, and was encouraged to see more of the country. I’m glad we haven’t put a sour taste in everybody’s palate.
