Did you guys know that I was supposed to be born on April Fool’s Day*? That explains a lot, huh. I think it’s also important to note that as of today, I am officially free and clear to get another speeding ticket. Two years ago today I was pulled over by some jackhole cop on my way to work, which totally gave me a point on my license. On top of that, he called me a ‘stupid college kid’ to a passerby, which was rude first of all, and second, I hadn’t been a ‘stupid college kid’ in over four months. Asshole.
With the exception of two years ago, I’ve always liked April Fool’s Day, and I enjoy a good joke in theory if not in practice (I kind of suck at them). Google is in on the joke, as usual. And since I’m too lazy to go looking for other examples, you should tell me about other sites doing crazy things, or crazy pranks you’re planning on playing today (or that have been played on you). And while you’re all having fun, I have to give a presentation in my cultural studies class and then come home to nap and make up for the three hours of sleep I got preparing for the stupid thing, all so that I can be refreshed for the first new episode of Bones we’ve had since February. And that is not a joke.
*Happy birthday to Fred and George Weasley. RIP Fred.
