delirium pissed off
Today is March 31. This means that tomorrow is April 1. April fools day.

Personally, I hate April fools day. I do not like pranks and practical jokes. To me, they appear as far too much like being mean to someone, and then attempting to disallow them from being upset by implying that such would indicate a lack of a sense of humour. Which isn't cool.

For those of you like me, I would suggest staying in bed all day tomorrow. If that isn't possible, burying yourself in a good book makes a nice alternative. Failing that, you may not want to believe a single word anyone says all day.

And for those of you who do enjoy April fools day, have a good day and have fun. Please do be careful and only pull pranks on people who will actually appreciate them, and not on those who are going to be resentful.

For the record, I will not be pulling any pranks, I will not appreciate any pranks played on me (either individually, or as a part of a group), and I will not play along with any pranks that anyone else is pulling.

Thank you.

Also, I think people like us are completely entitled not only to not play along, but to point out, if someone pulls a prank and accuses us of not having a sense of humor, that they are being cowardly bullies.

Oh bollocks, you're right. I had registered it was the first of a month, and that the month was April, and oh, April's quite springlike, isn't it? But I didn't put them together. And tomorrow I have to travel quite some distance on a train, so lets hope the train operators don't think they have a sense of humour.

I'm tempted to snag your entry and repost it in my own journal, unless you object.

Nope, don't object at all.

Um, you seem to be writing from *inside my brain*, and that is rather alarmingly uncanny.

I sort of hope no one even *talks* to me tomorrow. That would be fantastic!

I shall probably do a repeat of today then. Stay in bed all sodding day until I get dehydration headaches and broken spines and shoulders.

Apparently, it's bad luck to pull jokes after 12.

I plan to sleep until then. I've been known to take the day off on occasions in the pat, just to avoid the "funny guys" in the leisure dept.

April fools, various varities of...

"Failing that, you may not want to believe a single word anyone says all day."

Unfortunately, this might apply anyway: I have to go to a politcal convention tomorrow. This is not an April Fool's joke. (That is, the fact that there is convention, and I have to go to it, is not a joke. The convention may end being a joke, but I can hope....)
