Remembrance Day

It's not that I don't care. I just haven't been able to find any goddamned poppies! And from the looks of it, not too many other Torontonians have, either.

I'd observe a minute of silence, but I've been sitting at my desk on a computer all day. Silence would be redundant.

Sadly, it seems the only fashion in which Remembrance Day will impact my life is that the bank is closed. (Those lazy weasels at TD will use ANY excuse not work ... sometimes, I swear, Trudeapia's banks are worse than its public sector.)

In the end, it's only appropriate that 11/11 is fading from the cultural consciousness. After all, look at the symbol we chose: the poppy, the flower that kills the pain.
