There seems to be a Celebrate Your Daughter day several times each year.

Well . . . not until now. I find that Jan. 16 is "Nothing Day", a day celebrated by doing absolutely nothing. Guess I'll just sit here in the recliner all day, staring at the nicotine stained walls in this dark old basement and reminisce 'bout the good old days. Oh, wait. That would be doing something. Talk about a difficult task!

Looking forward to Post Your Vacation Pictures Online Day. I think it's in early February.

Wonder if Gandalf celebrated "*J.R.R. Tolkien Day" on Jan. 3. I bet Roe will be celebrating "Squirrel Appreciation Day" maybe with some potatoes and gravy.

This one made me chuckle. January 31st is "Appreciate Your Social Security Check Day"

Here are two holidays on Feb. 1st that should not be celebrated on the same day "Spunky Old Broads Day" and *Working Naked Day"

Lordy me, now I'm going to have that image in my brain until the next electric shock treatment.

I believe today is also "National Fig Newton Day" and also "International Hot & Spicy Food Day" So a little hot sauce on a Fig Newton should cover both.

Several times over the last few years but ABC keeps covering it up.

Talk Like a Pirate Day isn't legit?

Arrrggghhh, that makes me mard! No wonder the corporate captain wondered where me be that fine day.

The internet gets no holidays. 24/7/365 for the internet, just like 7/11 stores.

I recommend not visiting the cites celebrating "Hump Day" while at work.

Hey, several of my comments have disappearded. Not pinked out, just gone. They were here earlier, what gives? They don't even show up in my comments section.

Although there are days I wish I could forget who I am for a little bit.

That's how it begins.

Tricky Mayans . . .

I wondered if if was quietly being disappeardeded because of the Holocaust reference. I didn't even mention the "sled dog" day.

Yeah, I didn't wanna start that fire either . . ;-)
