Most folks agree that the three day President's weekend should be spent on a tropical island. Unfortch, since we just booked our flights to Vegas, Erin and I had to bring the islands to us in order to save a little cash. Capitalizing on an idea we've been toying with for a while, here's how we spent our Sunday night.
Step 1: Crank up the heat in the apartment
Step 2: Order pizza, go to bodega for nachos and ice cream
Step 3: Decide on an On-Demand movie
Step 4: Put on bathing suits
Step 5: Pull out couch bed, spread beach towels on mattress
Step 6: Don beach hats and sunglasses, light special beachy-scented shell candle
Step 7: Ta-dah! It's the beach!
Step 8: Watch movie, eat all the food and lay around until it gets too hot
Step 9: Crack a window, put on a sarong and play Guitar Hero for several hours
Step 10: Go to sleep at 2 a.m. not because it's time to quit, but because hand paralysis has set in
