It's Ceasar Salad Day

Beware the Ides of March!

god, i hate that saying.

i hate it because i lived with a man for a few years who was obsessed with a lot of things. one of them being March 15th, the Ides of March.

when i was with him, he had to "celebrate" today. he would eat ceasar salad for lunch and even expect me to make him a ceasar salad for dinner. then he would watch whatever version he thought was the "best" that year of Julius Ceasar (usually the one with marlon brando). he was an enormous shakespeare fan, and always yelled at me because i find shakespeare to be a complete and total bore. anyway, he'd whine and pout if i didn't watch the movie with him, so i'd just sit through it in order for him to shut up already. then he'd launch into this speech about brutus and ceasar and ancient rome and blah, blah, blah. this happened every year. EVERY YEAR. and i can guarantee you he's torturing whatever woman/man he's with right now with the same crap.

so annoying.

when phillip asked me "what are you writing about?" i said "[enter ex's name here]'s made up march holiday." "oh, right, i forgot. it's Ceasar Salad Day." we both rolled our eyes at the same time. that made me giggle.

Ceasar Salad Day. Ha. That's funny! This coming from an ignoramous (me) who has not heard that expression before. Or if I had, I never processed that I heard it and never bothered to find out what it meant.

The comment I posted reminded me of a GREAT movie quote. I hope you don't mind, but I wanted to share it. (Lord, I REALLY hope you don't have anything against John Cusak!)

Lloyd Dobler: "I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that."
