Staycation
Meant to be spent alone...

Searching the recesses of my mind, I furlough my brow, in a fit of exasperated respite. A breather for my recuperation is all I need to leave a pause and contemplate my recess scheduled for this coming sabbatical day (day after Saturday). So sorry for the interruption of the estivation referred to in this thread. Guess I just need a Vacay.

When you're staycating are you vacating but staying where you are? As opposed to vacating, which means you'd be leaving?

The term Staycation was originally (publicly) coined by Brent Butt, the creator of the Canadian comedy series Corner Gas.

Walmart is presently seeking to trademark the term in their bid to advertise ways to vacation at home.

In the episode of Corner Gas, Brent spends his vacation across the street from the gas station on a lawn chair, sending random postcards from exotic locations to his friends. When they venture near him, he speaks in 'postcardese', simply responding to their queries with an update on his 'vacation'.

It's freakin' funny.
