Too bad Valnetine’s Day is over


Multiple Personality Disorder
by Multiple Personality Disorder

I thnik Valnetine’s Day shuold be a National Hoilday on a Mnoday or Friday. I don’t thnik we have enuogh hoildays in the USA, whereas in Iran we have 265 days of holidays, the most holidays any cuontry has in the wrold. The prolbem is not enuogh daed Saints’ hoildays in this cunotry, so I think Valnetine’s Day shuold fall on one of the week day wokring days. But forutantely this Monday is Preisdent’s Day. I think we shuold also have Vice Preisdent’s Day also, hopfeully on a Friday.

As it is I thnik the enitre month of Feburary shuold be declraed a Natoinal Hoilday Month. Let’s see, this month I’ve not wroked much. Friday the 6th was the first furluogh day in Califronia, and the Monday befrore it was Reuglar Day Off (RDO), that’s when poeple on an Altrenative Scheudle suppsoedly wrok some extra hours every day but they get a whole day off evrey other week. So, Monday was RDO, Friday was furluogh, Thrusday the 12th was Califronia’s Lincoln’s Birthday Holiday, Monday the 16th is Presdient’s Day, Friday 20th is furluogh day. Tuesday the 17th and Wedensday 18th we’re going out of town in the mountians, but forecast is for haevy snow, so we’ll get stucked up there and we won’t do anything. So let’s see, Feburary is the shortest month of the yaer, 28 days, 8 days of it are weekends, 2 days of it is furluogh, 1 day Federal Hoilday, 1 day State hoilday, 2 days stuck in snow, 1 day sick laeve becuase my boss stressed me out when he gave me an assignment. I took another day off for dental work. Most poeple took off Friday the 13th becuase they were scared; scared of going home withuot having buoght a gift for thier sweethaerts, so they took the day off.

So, it’s like 10 working days in Feburary, only becuase they have put Valnetine’s Day on Satruday, but it shuold be on a non-furluogh Friday or a non-RDO Monday. And then Vice Preisdent's Day, and since there was a revoultion in that month in Iran, we Iranains shuold have a day off for that day. I'm sure other natoinalities can ask for the same kind of a day off.  So that’s like one week of work in the whole month of Feburary. Is it raelly wroth it to come to work for seven day in a month? By turning off the lihgts, HVAC, and redcution in waer and taer of eqiupments, State cuold save a lot of moeny.

I’m sure we can find seven more preisdents to have hoildays for them.

Nightalreadyfell, Oh, I always revealed my age,

by rosie is roxy is roshan on

from the time I first started here end 07. I write about it all the time, growing up in the sixties, high school in the seventies, stuff like that. I'm 49, I'll be fifty in August. When I first came here I used to make jokes about being perimenopausal.

But actually I'm not.

And not post either.  :o)

The photo is a couple years old.

I know all of these ladies ages, within a couple of years, except your. So, what is it?

You’re right. Not much can be accomplished in 10 days, working or not, so we might as well get the whole thing off.

You’re right again; a friend of mine bought a mattress from Costco and returned it about six months later because he said it hurt his back.

You’re right again; he drives like a taxi driver.

Here is where you go wrong, it’s your fault that your teenager is not working. If he was working, he could’ve been one more person pushing for having the whole month of February off. Make sure he gets a job with State.  We want paid time off, so don’t worry about who pays for the ski week, if we get the whole February off with pay.


oops I meant 10 days off

by Monda on

poor thing has only 10 days off in February!


Nah Agha! What free time in February?!

by Monda on

it's enough that our lovely teenager has an entire 10 week off, in the name of Mid-Winter Break/ Ski-Week. Who do you think pays for that ski week?!

10 "working" days

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

What the hell can someone accomplish in any workplace in 10 working days which are so interrupted and depressing as February days are? 

The problem with holidays in the United States is that everyone ruins them by going out in droves, buying a bunch of unneccessary shit, then returning it to the store a few days later (or 6 months if they are Iranian), then getting into an accident because they drive like they are ranande taxi. 

If you get any kind of holiday in america, LEAVE the country.  


Roxie is blunt ...

by nitemustfall on

One thing that surely came out of her text is that she revealed her age .. well sort of ... and that's really good progress. Hope that other ladies follow her lead and don't get a hang over about their age .. which never seem to change much year after year!

Happy Valentine's Day Roxie!

Dear MPD,

You are the funniest writer on IC! Great blog as usual! Your humor is pretty distinguishable and original!

I like your idea, but I'm not sure if it's going to work...Today on the way to go to see a movie with a girl-friend we were stunned by the extreme lack of love in people's behaviors...too many were rude to us! We concluded that these people's "love-saving" was already fully  consumed on Valentine's day! So dedicating a full month for love would make the following month a true hell for everybody....


PS: BTW, the movie we saw was The Reader and it was amazing!

This is such a graet ideal

by persian westender on

 besides, in national level we, the Iranian in diaspora should have sizdah bedar... chardah bedar...poonzdah bedar..etc.because in most of the cities in North America weatheaear is like spring in all the four seasons and we can not undermine our national heritage.

In international level we should have a day off on 'international day of lay off ' see? it even rhymes

Hey buttercup what's up with the dyslexia thang?

by rosie is roxy is roshan on

I don't get it.

When I was a kid in the 60's and there were all these racey posters and things my sister and I used to have a poster that was like an eye chart that got blurrier and blurrier as it got to the bottom and what it said was TOO MUCH SEX MAKES YOUR EYES GO FUNNY.

I hope that's what happened to you. That would explain why you want more free time in February.

Actually I assume you know that it isn't such a prepostrous idea. In many countries in Europe people get a whole month off in the summer.

Only thing is, it's HOT in the summer. Well I guess you know that too.
