"Remember, remember, the fifth of November…."

Ah, Guy Fawkes' Day. Popularized in North America by the book/movie V for Vendetta, it is the wonderful British holiday to celebrate that Mr John Q Public and the Commoners failed to disrupt The Establishment (for the upper classes)/celebrating that the Gunpowder Plotters made a stand against The Government (for the lower classes) by lighting up exorbitant amounts of flashy incendiary devices and bonfires with effigies of Guy Fawkes on them. (That's one wonderfully run-on sentence. Well, it's my blog and I can do what I want. So there. :P)

(However, these days, it's moved away from being about burning your own personal effigy of the Guy/protesting the church and The Man, and more about lighting up loads of fireworks. Ah well. To each their own.)

As for me…

Worked for corporate (like a slave)
Was micromanaged (like a slave)
Promoted McCafe (like a boss)
Got rejected (forever alonelike a loser)
No promotion (like a crew member)
Sent home early (like a useless)
Cried deeply (like a wuss)
Demanded a refund (like a poor student)
Crashed my car (like a careless)
Now I'm dead (like a corpse)

Nah... I kid. The last two lines are totally fake. The rest, however.... Grr.

Oh well - maybe I can make money some other way. Penny for the poor university studentGuy, anyone?
