April Fool's Day

The day when you can't believe anything on the internet. Can you believe this post? Am I writing it? Is it a lie?
See how tiresome today is? And there is the added annoyance that it seems as though the old rule of "If it's after midday you're the fool" doesn't count any more. Especially seeing as we are now such a worldwide community you could easily be pranked (is that a word?) for the whole 24 hours of the 1st of April.
Yes, you've got the message, I don't really get into the spirit of this day. I just tend to keep my head down and ignore everything I'm told. This can present problems if there's a fire alarm drill or something, but I'd rather risk being burnt to a crisp than have loads of people screaming "APRIL FOOL!" at me with slightly crossed eyes and dribble round their lips. *sigh*

In other news - I have a bastard cold coming (again!). I have been feeling run down for a couple of days, and with my lowered defenses some nasty little bug has snuck in and infected me. I've been fighting it off with lemsip and whiskey (which is hard to do in the office without people smelling it on your breath... I just tell them it's a new mouth wash) so hopefully it won't hit me hard.

Soundtrack of the day: I've hit RANDOM again... so far I've had some Hendrix and some Nine Inch Nails...
Update: See, I just saw a post on Reddit - someone has said this:
"My mom is planning on telling my dad she's leaving him later today (Not a joke - seriously) - should I tell her to postpone?"
Now is this true? Or is it an April Fool? And if it IS true, what would you say if you were the dad in the scenario? See how this day fecks with your head? Sake.

I don't usually agree with you about things which are worth getting annoyed about but maybe April Fools' Day is one of the common grounds we have. It's a pain in the arse but I mainly say that because I am annoyed that I haven't got the imagination to prank my team or my clients.

Soundtrack of MY day - Fleetwood Mac Rumours.

Fucking April Fool's Day, I hate it. I'm glad I don't have to go out and interact with people tomorrow (er, today) and deal with it.
