All these mixed messages, I'm so confused...

P.S. Funny video though...
Hey, hold on. I thought you were doing relaxing fur-laden activities on your time off.

The rule I always heard is: whatever you do for work, do the opposite for vacation. If you're an accountant, do your vacation in an artist's colony painting murals. If you're an artist who works alone in the country in jeans, go to the city and wear fancy clothes for dinner every night. If you're a cab driver, go on a hiking trip to the northwest someplace they don't have cars.

So, if you're an ACO, the perfect break would be ... ???

I don't know what the ideal ACO vacation would be but the opposite of our work would be to breed animals and let them go on the streets, then yell at the ACO and call them a murderer when they come to try to round them up or educate you.

I usually take 3 weeks a year off to go back east to visit my family and eat at all those places that somehow can't be duplicated out west...

Do as I say, dudes, not as I do! How many people can take 10 minutes out to show someone the beach, and run into a fisherman in the process of hooking a pelican on his line? It's a curse ... well, okay, and a blessing. I love pelicans.



(He was fine, incidentally. I took the hook out and let him go.)

Hey, now, Jimmy, that's an ideee ya got there ... suppose we hires a band and puts on a show? Doesn't the Jeremiah O'Brien hold soirees for hire? We could have a Bay Area ketchpolathon. With scooters. Whoever chases down and successfully poles the most water balloons rolling around the deck wins a Kewpie doll and a copy of "Ol' Yeller."

Is this an actual picture of the famous stegosaurus, I mean, stalagmite, uh, stale menthol, oh heck, Winnie?
