Greetings, partiers. Let’s jump right into the thick of it where all-things-holiday are concerned. Nov. 14 is Loosen Up, Lighten Up Day. So please. Lighten up a bit, celebrate these three rather lame holidays, and remember that a bicycle can’t stand on its own because it’s two-tired… ugh…
Moving right along… Nov. 15 is I Love To Write Day. This is certainly one I can identify with, since I write for a living. As as all writers know, just because we do what we love and love what we do, there are days when the words just don’t flow.
I think that’s easy enough to explain – writer’s block, lack of inspiration, or a cluttered mind stand in the way of all writers at one time or another. So for all of those out there who write for a living, I think the best way to celebrate is by focusing on the love of the craft. Give yourself a day off from the pen and paper or keyboard, and remove the pressure of producing for 24 hours. Let’s just relish in the fact that we love to write, today! For tomorrow, we write.
Push Button Phone Day is Nov. 18. I’m sure there are those of you who ask, “is there another form of dialing?” Indeed there is – or at least was. I remember the old rotary phones well and really hated having to dial anything past a five. Talk about your time wasters. I bet we waited at least two or three seconds for that dial to work its way back around when we had to dial a zero. Whew. Of course, we couldn’t play songs on rotary phones either. Talk about a rough life…
We also celebrate Married to a Scorpio on the 18th. I was married to a Scorpio. As far as I’m concerned, it wasn’t a cause to celebrate. So, today I will once again rebel, and celebrate the fact that I’m not married to a Scorpio, anymore. (Sorry all you male Scorpios… I’m sure you’re not like him )
World Toilet Day and Have a Bad Day Day are Nov. 19. I’ll just say my time is more valuable than to do anything else than mention these two. Find your own way to party is either of these days float your boat.
We’ll round out this week with Name Your PC Day which falls on Nov. 20. I’ll start. While a name like Viral or Old Fogey would probably fit, I’d rather be able to call my PC a Mac
Until next week, get your party on!
