I wish, but I don't have a "friend" if you know what I mean. Hook a brother up perhaps?

Work is going to suck tonight, so many idiot kids are going to come in today.

I always think it's funny that the only peole who get really excited about, and celebarate "420 day" are really the ones who would use any reason to "Celebrate", and hence don't need a "420 day".

That is counter-balanced by Joey Lawrence's birthday.

See, this is exactly what I meant.

I get excited about thanksgiving because I don't get a turkey dinner very often, if at all.

But "Celebrating" 420 day, for most of the people who "Celebrate" it, is kind of like celebrating ham sandwich day, isn't it?

Ya, but it's all about having the best ham sandwich you've ever tasted. Hamgasmic.

This is almost as dumb of a holiday as international skip day for high school students.

Le sigh. 'Yay, look how cool and cult we are because we smoke weed.' Get back to me on international 8-ball day.

See that's the thing though. There are a lot of hollidays where people get drunk. St. Patty's day, New Year's, Any long weekend in the summer, but those hollidays all have some other sort of meaning, and people just choose to get drunk as well. Hell, I'd be willing to bet just about everyone who celebrates 420 day also gets high on those hollidays I posted.

The difference is that there is no such thing as "Booze Day".

My main point is that potheads (real pot heads, not the casual user) tend to be the most annoying people in the world.

We get it, you really like to get high and play x-box, you think the most important social issue, and most (if not only) interesting topic of discussion is the legailzation of pot, and for some reason you invented a holiday where the sole purpose is to do what you do every other day anyway. And for the record, Dave Mathews sucks!
