WEED. That's What You're All Thinking.

I know, I know. Happy 4/20. Hooray for marijuana and all that.

If you were thinking to yourself, "I'll bet easy-listening superstar Neil Diamond never sang a song about the evil weed," well, you're wrong.

Yes, I've heard the Willie Nelson/Snoop Dogg collaboration "Roll Me Up." Yes, it's awesome, not only to listen to but to watch.'s about pot. Srsly.

But here's the thing. Everyone knows today is International Marijuana Appreciation Day, or whatever you want to call it. I mean, middle-aged ladies like me are giggling about it on Facebook. April 20 is about half-a-puff away from having its own section at the Hallmark store.

Thanks to, maybe even closer.

But here's what I want to know: Why wasn't everyone celebrating Bicycle Day yesterday?

The rare and exotic "intact blotter."
Even I wasn't celebrating Bicycle Day yesterday. I was celebrating my wedding anniversary with Beloved Spouse, and the only trip we took was to our local Italian restaurant. I tasted plenty of garlic and mozzarella cheese, but no purple.

Not LSD, but an incredible simulation.
(Snagged from a friend's Facebook page - thanks, pH!)
I'm pretty much a bust when it comes to taking illegal drugs (see what I did there?). My partying days - which I must say were pretty tame to begin with - are pretty much behind me. Just say no and all that. I don't want to lose my suburban mom cred by actually having fun. These days, I get my kicks from safe, legal, and completely non-addicting distilled spirits.

If they were good enough for Hemingway and his cat,
they're good enough for me.
Still, it's good to know that April 19th commemorates something other than the Oklahoma City bombing and the Branch Davidian fire. Thank you, Dr. Albert Hoffman, for bravely taking that first acid trip in 1943. I don't know why you don't get more love today.

Maybe you should have done a duet with Snoop Dogg.

Here, have another hit:
