I Need Ideas

So, tomorrow is Ash Wednesday for the Catholics and various other Christian denominations. It's a day when you see random people walking around with grey stuff smudged on their foreheads and you had damned well better not mention it because boy, will they give you a go-fuck-yourself-and-die look. Not that I know this by experience or anything.

For the record, if you ever see me walking around with a big black smudge on my forehead, please wipe it off for me. I won't even complain too much if you lick your thumb first like a mom (though it won't be as effective, because everyone knows that only True Mother's Spit has the magical properties required to properly get stuff off faces).

So I was thinking. I think atheists need a special day where we walk around with some glaring abnormality and get insanely pissed off if anyone questions us about it. Maybe Open Fly Friday, or Shirt Buttoned Wrong Saturday, or Tag Out Tuesday (ooo...that last one came to me all of a sudden and it is my favorite...).

Ideas for our new special day? Do the Pastafarians already have something like this (I know; Google is my friend, but I don't really care enough to look it up).

Pastafarians have "Talk Like a Pirate" Day, so... yeah.

Maybe a "wear house slippers to work" day?

Oh, I know about "Talk Like a Pirate Day." But that one is just not subtle enough.

I'm totally going to pick a random day to walk around with my tag hanging out of the back of my shirt.

...and if it is after I start at my new job, Runolfr, you had damn well better not say anything about it! You will insult my religion (because ask any fundamentalist Christian; Atheism is just as much a religion as Christianity).

Only saw one person advertising "I am Catholic!" today.

LOL @ "bonify." The captcha is trying to tell you something.

I saw two smudged people today. I guess here in the Evangelical capitol of the world, the ashed up folks are going to be few and far between.

Oh, God. I used to do this. Wear that freaking dirt on my head all day long.

How fucking weird is that.
