If there was ever a dumb reason to write a blog, I have just discovered it.
Today is December 20. In the majority of the world, today is written 20/12/2011.
If that's not a reason to celebrate (sure, it may be marginal. Who cares?) I don't know what is.
Oh, you still need a reason?
Ok, it's also Hortense Calisher's 100th birthday! Google her, you'll be glad you did.
Oh, and in the land of palindromes (a land I salivate over quite frequently) it's been 151 years since South Carolina attempted to secede from the union.
So, there. Happy 20/12/2011 everyone! I'll send you X-mas cheer later. That would be too much glee for one day.
20/12 20/12 20/12!
