Poppies are out, people. I was annoyed last year, not because of Rememberance Day or the shinies or any of that stuff, but because as we stood at the cenitaph last year as we do every year, some fawning asshat Conservative municipal bureaucrat rambled about supporting Bush. Kinda put a damper on the whole thing, for me.
So yes, it's poppy time. Bought mine this afternoon, and remind me again why we turned the centres black? I liked them better green, personally. I am rambling. But the nice old Legion ladies smiled at me and one of them had an "Anyone But Bush 2004" button and that cheered me up a little.
It also reminded me that the tone of Rememberance Day this year might be a tad different. *dark look*
Have class, must go. Must not forget to stop for groceries on the way home.
