Me and the WOZ

Dear Friends and Readers,
It pains me to inform you that Mr. Chad and I are no longer together. After being voted off of Dancing With The Stars last night, and with the heartbreak and utter humiliation that he felt, Steve Wozniak and I have decided to R-U-N-N-O-F-T. Now, we have thought long and hard about this and decided nothing could, or would, change our minds. Don't be concerned with Mr. Chad either, he now has Karina. Aren't we typical?...I took the money, Mr. Chad took the looks.


According to Wiki:

The origin of April Fools' Day is obscure. One likely theory is that the modern holiday was first celebrated soon after the adoption of the Gregorian Calendar; the term referred to someone still adhering to the Julian Calendar, which it replaced.[2] In many pre-Christian cultures May Day (May 1) was celebrated as the first day of summer, and signalled the start of the spring planting season. An April Fool was someone who did this prematurely. Another origin is that April 1 was counted the first day of the year in France. When King Charles IX changed that to January 1, some people stayed with April 1. Those who did were called "April Fools" and were taunted by their neighbors.[citation needed] In the eighteenth century the festival was often posited as going back to the times of Noah. An English newspaper article published on April 13th, 1789 said that the day had its origins when he sent the raven off too early, before the waters had receded. He did this on the first day of the Hebrew month that corresponds with April.[3] A possible reference to April Fools' Day can be seen in the Canterbury Tales (ca 1400) in the Nun's Priest's tale, a tale of two fools: Chanticleer and the fox, which took place on March 32nd.[4]
