The Weekly Ten: No Plans Memorial Day? No Problemo!

Ahh who doesn’t love a holiday where you get a three-day weekend? Is there anything better than waking up on a Monday and realizing you have absolutely nothing to do? Unless, of course, you’re one of the many who are trekking down to the beach, Florida, or anywhere awesome. Then you have the stress of traveling back home, getting probed by TSA, walking behind those slow people who take up the entire moving sidewalk, pay $45 to check your bag, all while your skin is radiating heat after doing the whole “It’s finally nice! I’m going to go with tanning oil today!”

Well, travelers, this list is not for you. This is for all my party peeps who are doing absolutely nothing this Memorial Day.

10. Day drink all day
Just start pounding those cocktails (starting with mimosas) and enjoy your second Sunday.

9. Real Housewives Marathon?

Okay, just me? Really though, catch up on all that crappy TV that’s been piling up in your DVR and get to watching Kelly Bensimon’s epic Blowpop breakdown. (Because nothing says Memorial Day like a crazy bitch from New York.)

8. Memorial Day Shopping
Wake up bright and early and smell the sales! Tons and tons of stores have amazing discounts for this holiday (and, really, you don’t even have to LEAVE. THE. HOUSE.) weekend so walk, don’t run, and scoop up your half-priced designer jeans asap.

7. Housekeeping, whatttt?

If you’re anything like me you have a giant pile of clothes sitting in your bedroom (and closet. and bathroom.) just waiting to be cleaned. Even if you don’t, this extra day is perfect for getting all these annoying spring cleaning chores out of the way. Points if you can incorporate #10 and turn household chores into a drinking game. Take a shot every time you vacuum a room? Take a sip every time you dust a shelf?

6. PBR-beque

Wrangle up your besties who don’t have any destination plans today and get to grilling. Get enough Pabst Blue Ribbon to last a year and stock up on hot dogs and hamburgers.

5. Try some of the things on this list
“Blink wildly and then close your eyes really tight for an interesting light show.” Well I know how I’m spending the rest of my day…

4. Run, walk, jog, elliptical.
Get your rear to the gym and start sculpting your guns. Gym’s usually dead (or sometimes closed) on this day, so you can spend all 24 glorious hours working up a good sweat.

3. Write a letter
Whether it’s to your Grandma or Lil Wayne in jail, pull out a pen and some paper and do it the old fashioned way.

2. Perfect your iTunes Library
Organize that shiz, download everything you’ve ever wanted in the past year but haven’t gotten around to, listen to old songs that you love and make your iTunes completely perfecto.

1. Nothing.
Seriously, do nothing. You don’t have work. You don’t have school. You have a whole Monday to sleep in until noon (or 4) and just chill out. Embrace it.
