Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Nobody likes a quitter... except today.

As everyone knows, today is national "Banana Cream Pie Day". Duh. But before you break out those Nilla Wafers and the Reddi Wip, there is another cause for celebration today. Yep. Today is also (wait for it...) national "Give Up Easily Day." (Which is not to be confused with national "Give It UP Easily Day," which I believe falls somewhere during Prom season in mid-May.)

I know, right? How friggin' awesome is that?! I mean, honestly. An entire day devoted solely to slackers? Take THAT high school guidance counselor. HI-YAH!

As a society, we have free reign to be absolute quitters today. Woo! The possibilities, they are endless, y'all. Today? We shall be slackers!

Slackers. That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common disinterests. Perhaps it's fate that today is National Give Up Easily Day, and we will once again be fighting for our right to be quitters... Today is the day the world declares in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! Eh, or maybe we'll just stay home."

*sniff*

Only in the U. S. of A., guys. Seriously. Is America great or WHAT?

So... um, yeah. I should probably do something to celebrate, right? Hmmm... what to do, what to do... Send TGIM an e-card? Write a witty blog post about all the things I could give up... er, easily? I need to do something to commemorate this oh-so-special day...

Or not. Whatev.

It's Banana Cream Pie Day?! Oh man... I must be celebrating the wrong day... I just had a piece of Hershey's Sundae pie from Burger King.

Give Up Easily Day, huh? Hm. I shall do my best to be as festive as possible and give up on as many things as I can today!

Thanks for the info, Cat! :)

I noticed you mentioned you liked "How I Met Your Mother" in one of your blog posts. I run "www.howimetyourmother.org", a fansite for the show. I am trying to create a place for fans and was hoping I could get a link from anywhere on your blog. I'd be incredibly greateful.

Thanks so much and keep on bloggin'. I'd love to hear back if you have the time too.
