Yesterday was, of course, the fifth of November. When a classmate walked into our seminar, she wished me a happy Guy Fawkes Day (and I admitted that I only really knew about it from V for Vendetta) which prompted me to research something that was only a vague recollection. You know the little rhyme?

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
About ten minutes later, she asked me the date - and I couldn't answer her. I checked my cel phone, then did a major *facepalm*, smacking my forehead. Even with a helpful rhyme, we were just a little forgetful.
