staycation (noun): Staying at home during your vacation instead of traveling to a pleasure destination. This can be caused by high gas prices, or just a shortage of money.

Day 3 just ended of my staycation week. So far it's been great. I'm taking all of the money I would have spent on a vacation somewhere else, and enjoying it with local activities. Yesterday included golf and the Lakers vs. Bulls game. Today was Disneyland. Tomorrow might be Wicked. Friday is a poker party. Saturday is Disneyland again. And Sunday is brunch.

Good times.

Side note, I haven't shaved all week to see how far my facial hair would come along. Figuratively speaking, if my facial hair were to be compared to some other guys regular hair, I would be the equivalent to someone with inverse culdesacs. I'll let you figure that one out.

We're part of history!

I remember when I was in grade school, I would read things like the attack on Pearl Harbor and how we'll remember it as the day of infamy. The women's suffrage movement that allowed them to vote. And even towards the latter part of our history books, the Vietnam War.

It's nuts how within the last decade, we've experienced things that will definitely make it into history books and that kids will ask us what we were doing when these things happened. We'll be able to look back and say where we were when 9/11 happened, when gay marriage became legal, and most notably, when the United States elected its first President of color.

It's awesome how we are a part of history.

On a side note, a lot of the things that we thought we would have in the future are coming up today. Will.I.Am was being interviewed via hologram on CNN tonight. And it looked just like what we envisioned in Star Wars when the Jedi's or the Sith Lord would communicate to someone else via hologram. These are really exciting times.

On a side side note. I came to the conclusion that helmets are not the most flattering accessory.
