Today's Random Cynicism

So yesterday was apparently 'Women's Day'. Which apparently is sort of but completely unlike Mother's Day, but without the sprogs and the presents. And believe me, I'm fine with that part, because there's no present on Earth I'd be willing to spawn for. But really, Women's Day? That's rather insulting, isn't it?

Isn't it the way it usually works, though? Women's Day, Secretary's Day, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Black History Month... it's all just saying "We treat you like shit 364 days a year, so let's give you the remaining day as a holiday! Except it's not really a holiday because nobody gets off work anyway! Congratulations! Here, have a non-environmentally-conscious lame-ass greeting card you'll be throwing away anyway!"

Holidays can suck my dick.

Hi, that icon is teh shit. Is it from the MTV awards?

Anyway, on topic, at work yesterday, we were all trying to figure out just what International Women's Day meant. Apparently in Europe, it's a much more "celebrated" holiday than it is in the States (read: not at all). We suggested that all women get the day off, but all that happened when we did that was it started to snow and the wind blew like a mofo, so we had an early dismissal to sit in traffic.

This comment has taken on a totally inappropriate length, so I'll shut up now ;)

Hehe, yes it is. Once upon a time all my icons were Gollum. But then my account ran out and when I got it back they all magically turned into Stargate icons. *whistles*

So... celebrate Women's Day! Sit in traffic all afternoon! Yeah, I'm all for that. Not. *lol*
