Holiday to Celebrate For September 13Th.

 For all you partiers out there who just NEED something to celebrate before you POP that cork and dance like fools, here it is… Today is the day Francis Scott Key penned The Star Spangled Banner.
Yup, on this day back in 1814 while watching the battle at Fort Henry being bombarded by the British, he penned the song that will forever go down in America’s history. He was so impressed that after a long night of fighting, and being BOMBARDED by the British, to STILL see a lone American flag remain standing at Fort Henry, he just had to write a song.
Naturally, like ANY good Colonist, after witnessing such an event, he popped SEVERAL corks, got drunk as a skunk, and celebrated. SoIf ya NEED a reason to dance NAKED drunkenly in the streets, NOW’S your chance…
I’d party WITH ya but I’M waitin’ for DINGUS DAY!!! Have AT it ya’ll
Party Hardy!!!
Until Later…
P.S. This educational piece of History was brought to you by Heinekin… 😉

Take Your Imaginary Friend to Work Day

Image

There are so many silly and ridiculous holidays out there I decided to create one of my OWN. I’ve decided that March 4th. will be designated as TAKE YOUR IMAGINARY FRIEND TO WORK DAY. What??? Oh come on, you never had an imaginary friend?

As a kid, (No psychoanalysis here please to any shrinks out there), I had several imaginary friends. They were all different sexes and I EVEN had an invisible animal. We would play, have tea, go on extended journeys together, and even devise ingenious plans on how to sneak back into the living room undetected to watch TV after I went to bed. The only problem with THIS was, my parents always HEARD me and my imaginary friend GIGGLING and sent US back to bed.

Just think about how COOL this would be. You could show your friend all around your place of business, introduce him/her to all the OTHER imaginary friends that came, hang out, and in general just have a great day. Shoot, you could EVEN take your imaginary friend out for lunch. In MY case, I would order TWO Martinis and just explain that the OTHER one was for MY friend.

NO…I am NOT on any prescribed medication…WHY do you ask??? NO…I have NOT been drinking either. Okay…That was a LIE but I resent the fact you think I have to be DRUNK to write something like this. I am ALMOST sober…**Fingers crossed behind back**

Anyway, just think about all the great conversations you could start at your workplace. People would probably whisper about you at the water cooler, (Except for those who actually brought imaginary friends along with them also), HELL, people might EVEN think you are Schizophrenic. What great fun you could have with THIS at meetings. Hehehehe.

I sincerely all hope you embrace the idea and get your friend/friends together tonight so you can be ready for tomorrow. Enjoy your special day tomorrow and have a GREAT time.

Until Later…

 

Thoughts for Valentine’s Day

Image

It’s coming up on Valentine’s Day and I have a few thoughts. For those of you who may NOT know the story of Valentine’s Day, it all started back during the Roman Empire.

There are several different versions but let me give you the Romantic one. According to Wiki, (And who DOESN’T believe Wikipedia), Valentinus, a Catholic priest, was imprisoned for marrying soldiers of the Roman Empire. Supposedly, Rome believed that by getting married, the soldiers wouldn’t want to fight as hard for the Empire. All they would want to do is BOINK their wives and eat well… Whatever they ate back then, Curds and Whey I think.

Anyway, as the story goes, Valentinus said to HELL with Rome and secretly married the soldiers anyway. He was caught, arrested, and thrown into some deep dark dungeon somewhere to rot.

Okay, where was I now? Oh yeah…So, there he is sittin’ and rottin’ when the daughter of his jailer, a woman named Asterius, ( I KNOW…RIGHT???), what ever happened to like Delilah  or SUE??? Anyway, she got the HOTS for Valentinus and he for her. I know, he was a priest and all, but dungeons and rottin’ CHANGE a man.

As it turns out, before his execution, he wrote a letter to his beloved and signed it…From your Vanentinus. Ever since, we write “From your Valentine” on our cards because well…Valentinus just doesn’t SOUND as nice now DOES it??? Wasn’t that a romantic story? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…………..

So what are YOU doing for Valentine’s Day? Are you going to make a special dinner for YOUR beloved? Will you cover your table with Rose pedals and have long stemmed candles? Just so you guys KNOW, this is what I want. Just in case anyone out there might be thinking of me.

I always thought it would be romantic to make a gift box with coupons with special things in it. For example: A romantic bath for two, or one free week of washing the dishes. Of course a trip to Aruba or Cancun would also be nice, just some thoughts here guys…

What EVER you do for that special Valentine of yours, I hope it will be a ROMANTIC DAY for BOTH of you. **Winks** I’ll be thinking of everyone. Muah!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone…

Until Later…

 

A Silly Holiday

Image

There are no real Holidays before Valentine’s Day and I needed one so I decided to just make one up. I decided that this Friday will be considered TipAFew Day. Yup, that’s right; this Friday is International TipAFew Day.

Thousands have asked me, (OK, no one has really asked but I’m sure they WILL be shortly), “Sue, just what IS TipAFew Day?” Well sir, it’s a day where either after work, after school, or after BREAKFAST, you just sit back, go out, and Tip A Few.

Okay, I KNOW what you’re thinking, “But Sue, don’t you DO that EVERY Friday anyway?” Yes, but THIS way, you can have a few without WORRYING about it BECAUSE it’s a Holiday. No one will really CARE how many drinks you tip ‘cause They’re celebrating right along WITH you. After all…It IS a Holiday.

Some folks have asked me, “Sue, can I get off of work for this?”  My answer is, “Every job is different, some are more flexible come special Holidays and some are not.” Since this one only starts THIS Friday, you will have to spread the word around quickly to get the spirit of the day going. Hey, who knows, if you do a good enough job of selling the idea, MAYBE they will close you job down for the day and just start partying.

In honor of this day, I will be buying the ENTIRE WORLD it’s first drink. Just send the bill to: Sue at P.O. Box 188, Wonderland Dr., Land of OZ. I even made up a little catch phrase in honor of this day. See what you think.

“If YOU tip a few, so will Sue,” OK, it’s in the first draft stages but it IS kind of fitting for the day right? If YOU have a BETTER jingle, I’d LOVE to hear it.

I hope ALL of you enjoy TipAFew Day, I KNOW I will…

Until Later…
