Good Friday, better Saturday

Well, I came to the OU today and there ain't nobody here. I guess it's a religious holiday and the English, though not especially religious, seem eager to celebrate Easter. People have been asking me what I am planning to do for Easter, to which I respond, Nothing, I'm not really a Christian anymore. And they look at me like I've lost my mind.

Although I think celebrating religious festivals without religious conviction is silly, I suppose it's not really celebrating a religious festival so much as taking a day off.

I was all geared up to work today, but getting here and having no one actually working has me wondering what I'm doing here. Not quite sure what I would be doing otherwise, but.

I have to work on my article, my probationary report, and mark some papers. Yoko will be picking me up in 4.5 hours, so let's get to it.
