Hooray, Hooray...

... the 8th of May!  Tami would kill me if I posted about anything else today, so here it is, your rundown of today's obscure holiday.  Hey, if we can have Star Wars Day ("May the Fourth {be with you}!) and of course Cinco de Mayo, what other day could possibly round off this week except - you ready for this one?

National Outdoor Intercourse Day!

I kid you not.

Those goofballs in Tami's town started it, apparently (I know, who'd have thought such a thing originated in a NORTHERN state?  I mean, it gets COLD up there, even in May!  But whatever...), though I hear there are some over in Jason's that say it was their idea.  But WHOEVER started it, it's definitely an amusing addition to those other early-May holidays, especially since we don't get a "real" (as in, government-sanctioned, which, come to think of it, generally does NOT mean it's a hell of a lot of fun {okay, okay, except for the 4th of July, but when you think about it, that was rebelling against a DIFFERENT government [and of course you get to blow stuff up, which is the best part ]}) one till Memorial Day, which is probably how all these extra ones got shoved in here anyway.

So this is the day where you grab your partner of choice and head outside to have a grand ol' time and try not to get arrested for indecent exposure or any of those annoying mood-killers.  At least, those of you who have partners (I don't think it counts if you're flying solo).

And since this is Topical Tuesday, I suppose I should mention some other bits (hah!) of news, like, I dunno, French or Russian elections, or the Avengers' massive first-weekend box office, or baby pills (!!!!!!), buuuuuuuuuuuut those are giant mood-killers too (except maybe the Avengers one {if you like that kind of thing [I'm doing it again with the parentheses, I really need to knock that off, sorry]}) so I'll leave those in the apophasis category and let y'all get on with having a good time, okay?

Hello?

You all went outside already, didn't you?

You know... strangely, Moscow is usually pretty nice by May... But besides that, this weekend is usually the University of Idaho graduation, so the community is generally in a celebratory mood. Everybody likes college students best when they are headed home for summer.

Spring (nor summer) in the north doesn't mean it's warm. It just means it's light all the time >:)

All the more need for a little friction, eh? Generate your own heat!

Hey! I know I've mentioned this before and gawd knows I love that tartlette but my Dad (who would be 88 this year had he lived) rang up a pal of his on May 1st every year - they had a contest to see who would remember first - 'hooray hooray it's the first of May - outdoor screwing starts today!' My step-ma (!!!!) told me that he and my mum used to have the same contest - so it goes WAY back. And they were from Manitoba - now that is cold! I love this - love it love it even though the SP isn't an outdorsey screwing kind of lad - he loves the outdoors and loves...ahem...but putting the two together hasn't occurred to him. ha!

*snort* Y'all are funny. Meanwhile, Blogger seems to have eaten some of my parentheses (yeah, there were originally more of them... I know, right?). Rainy and blah here today, plus, y'know, single, so oh well. Maybe next year...

No problem; partner is optional. All you need is some friction and fantasy >;)

Well, shoot, I came late and missed the holiday. {I hear my neighbors cheering right now.} Went to see The Avengers on Mother's Day. I really liked it! {Also liked the look of shock on son's face when he asked what I wanted to do on Mother's Day and I said, go see The Avengers.}
