Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

02/14/2005: Faux Holiday Update

Appropos of this Faux Holiday for that Saint Somebody or other... :-)

Hmmm...I've noticed there a too much fretting a going on around here. Any way, I had to dub last week Fret-Free-Friday-in-February (mostly for my friend, Linda, who comes from a family of very fretful people) but if you are already fretting about tonight...it works in your case too.

I don't like Faux Holidays myself...like Super Bowl Sunday, or Secretary's Day, or this Saint Somebody's Day.

BE WARNED: The Thought Police will be out in droves tonight looking for misplaced Thoughts...so keep yours Tagged, Bagged and NEVER leave them unattended!

Even, Maureen Dowd (NY Times) that witty and cleaver writer, has her "knickers in a bunch" over this evening's plans. "Chill Maureen...and have some chocolates...always works for me."

For a little humor...check out my past post about the Calendar my hubby gave me this year - that has lots of Nifty dates I can wrap my mind around in Calendar Days of Wine and Roses...or Something Else....

There is also one for Bill Maher about - what else on St. Somebody's Day... Diamonds: in Romancing the Stone.

I mostly just like Chocolates for Faux Holidays...but they work for any others days too... *smile.*

(Drat...I forgot to shop for Cory's Fifth Grade Valentines...now I have to run to Meijer's and be sure to drop stuff off at school today. Oh....I am such a baaad mother.)
