    Col, I’m sorry I missed the date!

    Locked

    by dmambo ·

    I got a 2010 calendar (produced by HP) in the mail today from a supplier. Every day of the year has a special note and this past Tuesday was listed as “H.A.L. 9000 Became Operational, Urbana, Illinois (1997)”. So I apologize to Col for missing his birthday.

    Today is “Dress Up Your Pet Day”.

    Last Thursday must have been for maecuff. It was “I’m Not Going to Take It Anymore Day”. Although 25-March is “Kick Butts Day” which might be for her, as well

    For Canadians, 23-Feb is “Curling is Cool Day”. Though I suppose that might be for hairdressers, too.

    I think that the best one I’ve come across so far is 3-March – “What If Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs? Day”.

    Just ask and I’ll clue you in on any particular day you’d like to know about.

      I guess that date could also be 1992.

          You coward DM.

          I’m horrified that you didn’t put in the entire quote.

          Yes I know it starts off as [b]Let It Go Day[/b] but the entire quote is [b][i]Let it go to destroy a Vaio Day.[/i][/b] 😉

          Shelly isn’t Mae so she’s no where near as scary. 😉

        “National Deep Dish Pizza Day”

        Since it’s “National”, I’m guessing it might be U.S. only, but I’m sure it’s open to interpretation.

        13-Jan – “Rubber Duckie Day”
        16-July – “Hot Dog Night”

        I hope people keep in mind that I’m only the messenger. I didn’t make these up, so I can’t be blamed if someone is unhappy with his special day!

        • #3021221

          Many thanks kind sir, I like them – 13 Jan is my son’s

          In reply to They are…

          birthday, and 16 July is my ex-wife’s and since she’s such a female canine, a link to dogs is appropriate – it also clearly over states her cooking ability as she manages to burn hot dogs.

      OMG, I just noticed this for GG

      by dmambo ·

      In reply to Col, I’m sorry I missed the date!

      1-Feb is listed as “Spunky Old Broads Day” and…

      8-Feb, the following Monday is “Boy Scouts Founded (1910)”.

      So the image in my head is GG on top of the boy scouts. She does seem to be enjoying it……

          Provided you use Swiss Chocolate and forget the cherries. 😉

          What can I say that my favorite Bumper sticker doesn’t.

          That explains why I always want to buy chocolate-covered cherries between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
