Missing Days

May 5, 2009


I keep missing days lately. Two days ago (May the Fourth) I completely missed that it was Star Wars day. I have a tie that I could have worn, but I didn’t know about it until I got home on the 4th. Yesterday, I didn’t have any sort of tie to wear for Cinco de Mayo, so I wore the Star Wars tie a day late. Today I also found out it was (National?) teacher appreciation day. I have a fair number of teacher ties, but again, I was a day late.

I’d also been counting down the days until National Cartoonists day. I thought I’d mention that XKCD is my favorite comic, and that Ted Mallory is the only cartoonist that I know. Do you think Ted will notice if I post one of his cartoons? Lets find out…

Oh, I missed National Cartoonists Day too (another tie opportunity lost). Is there anything else coming up that I can look forward to missing?

    Today is George Clooney’s birthday. Maybe you could wear a tuxedo to school.

    For those of you unaware of the Star Wars thing, look here. It took me a while to get it.

    By the way, Lloyd, “only cartoonist you know?” Really? Did you miss the ladybugs?

    I suppose you missed No Pants day last week also? I always thought you were more on top of things…

    May 7 is CFW Walther day. DON’T FORGET!

    I have a CFW Walther miniture. You know, the old painted figurines made of led or pewter or something? Great to use as a cleric in DnD Campaigns.


  6. Todd Peperkorn Said on:

    I think you should carry CFW around with you tomorrow. For a couple years at our Academy we took CFW Walther day off. Any excuse for a day off in May….

    Isn’t there some sort of alert you can get to keep you up to date on the “days”?

      Hmmm, an iPhone app, perhaps? Maybe that’s how I will make my millions.


      • Deanne Said on:

        My brother (a programmer, or developer, or whatever you want to call him) is wondering if apps are the next THING for him. A friend set him up with a super-Mac (don’t recall which one) and he’s trying his hand on apps. We should send him this idea!!
