Rain, Rain, Go away. Come back on Anniversary Day.

It's pretty much rained everyday off I've had this summer. If it's not raining it's gloomy because it rained last night and is just waiting to rain again tonight. So don't mind me if I'm a little irritated and lacking in Vitamin D. Apparently you need that to be happy..

I need to rant today about people that celebrate everything. One month anniversaries, three months, 6 months, 1.759 years... I'm not talking wedding anniversary either. I mean from the day they started dating. Or better yet since a lot of the time there is no official "Will you be my girlfriend" date, the 6 month anniversary from when you got really really loaded and woke up in his bed. It's one thing to be a little excited you're hitting the 6 month mark, and maybe have a little romantic dinner with your sweetie, but to expect congratulations is like wanting someone to throw you a maybe-you'll-have-a-wedding shower. Please.

Are people really that self involved? Oh wait.. I already know the answer to that question. If you regularly read my blog you will probably start to notice that I remember the most miniscule details of events in my life. Anyway, I remember back in about grade 7 , still fresh into highschool or junior high as the city folk call it, I was riding the bus home after school. One of the older girls on the bus seemed to have such a dramatic and exciting life *searches for a scarcasm button* that I enjoyed listening in on all the things she had to say. Well actually... we literally rode the short bus to school so I had no choice but to hear it all. She once spoke of what anniversaries were important. I got out my trusted memo pad to make sure I got it and could refer back to it when I had my first serious boyfriend. I don't have that memo pad anymore but I believe it was every 3 months until the first year and then after the big one year anniversary "you should really only celebrate every 6 months." Teenagers, their so full of wisdom.

Even at 12 - a preteen - I was this scarcastic and what's another word for crusty? Never really been a girly girl I guess.
