  1. #1 Whatever Wednesday. 
    Sorry I'm late! We had an emergency at work this morning.

    TOTD: Did you call in Gay Today? Today is gayless Wednesday. Gays are urged to call in "gay" and devote their energies to volunteer work or something. Either we don't employ a lot of gays or they didn't get the memo or they think this effort is silly.

    Unless you work in musical theater, fashion design, or the snarkier forms of journalism, I'm guessing you won't notice any reduction in the workforce.

    Did you call in gay? Did others at your work? Does anybody else even know about this boycott?

    This is the first I've heard of it.

    I did not. But I am wearing pink socks to show my support. :D

    I read about it on another non-political message board. If somebody who worked for me called in "gay", I don't know what I would do. Probably forward the message to HR, because I don't know how to appropriately deal with such nonsense.

    I'm concerned that there are those here who have such matters recorded on their calendars. :p

    An "emergency" at work. So let's see you didn't take the WHOLE day, you just came in late. :D

    No, I came in early. I just didn't have time to fool around with you people. Besides, doesn't everybody get the Gay Update in their morning email?


    Maybe not. :o

    You should have skipped today Ralph.

    You could have showed them the Ralph Wiggum Is Ghey thread as proof of your ailment. :p:D
