La Vida Es Buena?

The Spanish and the Latin Americans celebrate Dia de los Santos Inocentes on December 28th, essentially their day of traditionally carrying out pranks without fear of reprisal. Like our April Fool's Day.

I love these types of days. I wonder how many other countries celebrate a day like this, of pranks and fun, on other days of the calendar. I'd try to celebrate every single one of them at every opportunity. I'd love to go and do something fun for today. I'm set to start making phone calls now. If I don't find a good idea regarding what to do for today I might go a little loco, as it were.

I found out my family in England were thinking of working together to buy a laptop for me for Christmas. Shipping something like that would have cost a pretty penny, and the worst thing is how the British money costs so much compared to the dollar, and that if they'd found (as an example) a laptop that would cost 300 pounds, I would wager it would not be as good as a $600 machine. I guess that's why I simply like crisps from there, or objects I can't find in America. I'm going to go and bring back the strawberry milkshake sweets (nicknamed "slugs" by Jamie) from England. I wonder what wonderful junk food is in England right now. I feel like eating junk food. I feel like today is going to be best spent eating junk food and trying to kill time because I'm not sure if I will be able to meet up with anyone. Ah well.

I'm going to look up flight prices, then I'm going to look into calling people. It's a shame I'm limited by who I know. I'd like it if the phone calls would take longer than the flight-searching, but I know that's not to be. It's a gorgeous day outside, at least. A perfect day for photos if we hadn't lost the camera chargers.
