I saw Glen Close on the TV last night. He's a nice man. I think he used to do that Up With People nonsense.

Any day you can devote to OTS is a holiday. There should be a national dishwasher day. For all the Marges in the world with beautiful hands that go unappreciated.

LadyJ (anonymous) says… "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."

That's how it begins.

Tricky Mayans . . .

That 7/11 is a bunch of BS. I went to a 7/11 at about 8am last Thursday. The door was locked. I saw a clerk inside so I started banging. The clerk yelled "We're closed!". I said, "The sign says Open 24 Hours!". He said "Yeah, but not in a row!"

It's probably identity theft, Lady. That happened to me. I sure wish I could remember who I was.

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

Friday the 13th. If the shoe fits................. Put it on and run with it.

Envision an old geezer down the basement running in circles around his computer with only one shoe on, laces untied, mumbling. Now that's quirky.

What's a Starbucks?

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

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.

There is a National Bubba Day on June 2nd when I congratulate my friends named Bubba, an Episcopal bishop and a manager at the brewery.

It will be the second annual Rock Flopping Day before you know it.

Nope. Never heard of internet holidays. Are those the days the nerds put their pants on and come up out of their momma's basement????

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.

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!
