nameday

Today is St. Nina's Day, which therefore is my nameday.

If I was going to do things properly, then I'd fast and go to church to light candles to my name saint and thank her for looking out for me and beseech her continued blessings, but instead being a lazy heathen i've decided to simplify the tradition by simply having cake.

Furthermore, I also decree that if you want to celebrate me today, then you also ought to have cake.

Amen.

On another note, today's comedy moment came courtesy of an old woman I smiled at when we passed each other on the street. She responded with:
"What are you leering at me for, you young whore?"

I jotted it down in my notes for amusing things to do in my old age.

Wow,
called a young whore on your Saint's names sake day. You must really be slutting it up. I plan on faking old age as soon as possible...it's all the freedom of childhood again but with money.

She was your saintly nemesis, St. Crochety Old Crone.

I needed a cake excuse today and straight to the fridge (it's fresh cream) I go, all praise St. Nina.

You should celebrate by shopping as well, ahem. As for your saint, well she obviously doesn't operate in Morden against the young yobs and she doesn't protect you from old crones' comments, so what use is she exactly? Cake seems appropriate.

I had some chili chocolates from Montezuma's before I knew it was your saint day, but I'd like to retroactively have them in celebration of St. Nina.

i hereby declare them a holy food.

That old lady, wow that is weird and random! I would have done a huge double take. HA!

Happy St. Nina Day to you!

thank you!

secretly though, isn't there a part of you that is looking forward to being able to do that sort of thing AND get away with it in your old age? ;)

Certainly!

I know some people who are not at all secretly looking forward to that. hahaha!
