TGIF. It is STILL raining here....it's been raining since last Saturday night. I need it to stop. I've looked like a drowned rat all week and would like one day that I didn't. I'm sure it will stop for Saturday, as I have to work. LOL
So...what are we celebrating today.....
1). Winnie the Pooh Day: I LOVE this one! Yes, it's the day we celebrate the anniversary of the birth of A. A. Milne (1882), author and creator of Winnie the Pooh and the Hundred Acre Woods Characters.
|Deep in the hundred acre wood,|
Where Christopher Robin plays,
You'll find the enchanted neighborhood,
Of Christopher's childhood days.
A donkey named Eeyore is his friend,
And Kanga, and little Roo.
There's Rabbit, and Piglet, and there's Owl,
But most of all Winnie-the-Pooh.
Tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff.
Willy, nilly, silly, old bear

2). Thesaurus Day: Thesaurus Day celebrates the birthday of the author of Roget's Thesaurus. Peter Roget was born on this day in 1779. Why don't you look up a word or two and find a synonym or antonym today....
3). International Fetish Day: The main purpose of International Fetish Day is to increase awareness and support of the fetish community, whilst also opposing the new law criminalising possession of "extreme pornography." On this day, one of the main aspects is that members of the community wear an item of purple clothing as a sign that they are a member, in an event known as "Perverts Wear Purple". Hmm...and I had purple on yesterday....
4). National Sanctity of Human Life Day: In one of his final actions as president, Bush declared January 18 to be “National Sanctity of Human Life Day.” All human life is a gift from our Creator that is sacred, unique, and worthy of protection," the presidential proclamation read.
5).Peking Duck Day: No, it's not really celebrating the duck itself, but the eating of the duck. The Pekin produces more meat than other duck breeds. The meat is mild and tender, and lends itself to different methods of preparation, which explains why this is such a popular commercial breed. Peking Duck is a delectable dish that originated in Beijing, China during the Imperial Era. It became one of the main dishes on the court menus of the Ming Dynasty in the 1500s and is now considered one of China's national foods. Sounds yummy to me....
If you find something else, just post it below. Oh, and after last night's pants fiasco, I was careful today......then my belt broke right as I was talking to the owner of a preschool....how embarassing, because it was the back that just broke...I just can't win. (sigh)
