We don't need no stinkin reasons!

A Sunday morning, especially post night-of-severe-partying, would be a good day to sleep in later than normal. But sometimes kids, barking dogs, phone calls from crazy mothers, and cold feet (literal!) hinder much-needed sleep, and cause Sunday morning blogging instead.

I like anniversaries!

Anniversaries were invented for people like me, who like to remember events and dwell on the past. Or maybe they're for those who just want any little excuse to party! Seriously, any day can be a celebration of something or other. For instance, today we could throw a party in honor of the signing of the US Constitution in 1787. Or we could plan a birthday party for the city of Boston, MA. Hell, if we were really desperate, we might remember this as the day Jim Morrison sang "Girl, we couldn't get much higher" on national tv or the airing of the first episode of M.A.S.H.

See? The possiblities are endless.

Today my brother (who incidentally was 18 days old when the Jim Morrison/Ed Sullivan debacle happened) is coming over and we're making Fried Chicken. I think we'll do it in honor of the birth of Bryan Singer. We missed him in X3, damnit.

So if you were going to celebrate this day, what would be your reason?

Today I would have a memorial service for the Constitution. If GW has his way, pretty soon it won't be much more than a nice historical piece. {bitter, bitter, bitter}

OR... Maybe I'd celebrate that I've been 27 for seventeen days. Because we need ALL the excuses we can get to celebrate MEEEE!!!!! Incidentally, this is a key part of the New Science, in which every day revolves around Rebecca.

I'd celebrate this day as the first day that my kids knew I didn't believe the church was true.
