Unemployment Benefit #1

Seeing as we're making less a week on unemployment checks than Zak used to make in one day, it's getting harder to see the positive side of layoffs.
In order to turn this frown upside down, I've decided that this week is going to be
Unemployment Benefit Week.

Each day I'm going to list one great thing about being unemployed.
Keep in mind-some of these may seem like a stretch, but let's be honest, it's unemployment we're talking about.

Benefit #1: Zak is now one step closer to becoming Mr. Darcy: Man of Leisure.
Man of leisure means a man without employment, a gentleman if you will.
Okay, the definition also involves some sort of inheritance to live on, but do we really need to get technical about these things?
Mr. Darcy often traveled into London for "business" or to "settle his affairs", but how do we really know that Austen didn't mean he was in the midst of a frantic job search?
I'm just sayin'.

i like this new series.

along that same vein, he has more time to focus on growing some Mr.Darcy-like mutton chop side burns.

Too hot to handle!

When you say leisure you should be super cheesy and exaggerated and pronounce it
