Are you going to be in attendance for the Donald Trump Rally and/or Protest on Friday at the UIC Pavillion?


Kim with the rings

Kim K.

Absolutely not. I want to leave work early so I am not even in the same vicinity as that man and any of his supporters.

As tempted as I am to go protest Trump, I’ll let grumpy college students do that for me.

I will not be there. If I were to go to any rally on Friday, I would go to my alma mater at Argo Community High School to see Bernie Sanders.

I cannot believe my alma mater is allowing such horror. But then, I don’t really care enough about it to protest. The guy is a sideshow. I can’t help but feel that if everyone would stop paying attention to him, he’d go away.

How will you be celebrating St. Patty’s this weekend?


Kim P

Kim K.

I haven’t decided if my celebration should include green eggs and beer or sleep.


Ashley B.

Ashley B.

Nope, I will be at the Heroes and Villains convention in Rosemont, doing my press thing.


Angelo B.

Angelo B.

Standard stuff, watching the river dye and most likely day drinking. Although, since I was sick all week, there is a part of me that just want to stay at home and relax.

Now there’s a good question….I might make a cameo at the South Side Irish Parade if I can muster up the energy to get on the Metra with a bunch of drunks.

Speaking of holidays, do Leap Day and Pulaski Day count if we still have to work?


Kim with the rings

Kim K.

I wish they counted but I don’t think they do.


Ashley B.

Ashley B.

I think we should get off Leap Day, like Topsy Turvy Day in the Hunchback of Notre Dame. I don’t care too much about Pulaski Day; it was awkward leaving the state for college and realizing that it wasn’t normal to get the day off.

Angelo B.

Angelo B.

According to Wikipedia, holidays are defined because work is suspended or reduced. So by that definition, they are not holidays.

Molly K.

Molly K.

I took off on Pulaski Day and gave myself my own holiday. Leap day….not so much. Though I do think it should be a day where no one has to take care of any sort of obligations. Or at the very least, a court holiday so my day is quiet.

What should the theme be for JAT’s March Madness Bracket this year?


Kim P

Kim K.

Oh geez. How about best actor who played a superhero/comic book character? Or is that too specific? I feel like with the increase in the number of movies that are coming out lately there would be a ton to choose from. I mean there’s like 15 people who have played Batman alone (but Ben Affleck as Batman would be the first to go. Sorry, Ben)


Ashley B.

Ashley B.

Hmm, superheroes seem all the rage this year

Angelo B.

Angelo B.

So the big nerd in me wants to make it super hero themed, since there are a lot of highly anticipated super hero movies this year.

Molly K.

Molly K.

Hmmmm….what about best movie? I am the least creative person on the planet so you’re barking up the wrong tree, here. Call me if you need a logic problem solved.
