What the heck, it's Wednesday

Did you know that today, August 14, is National Creamsicle Day?  No?  Well, you're probably not alone. But don't worry, it's still early enough in the day that you can rush right out to your local grocery store or chase down an ice cream truck and grab one. Hallmark may even make a card to commemorate this momentous occasion, but don't quote me on that.

Yesterday, it was Left Hander's Day.  It was also my daughter's birthday.  She isn't a lefty, but we celebrated her anyway. She got to eat sushi for lunch and Chinese food for dinner.  Her little brother was not amused as we're both Teriyaki ordering peeps when it comes to sushi joints.  She had a lot of fun and I think she is now sufficiently outfitted for school, which begins in two weeks.  Hurrah!  (For the starting of school, not the fashionable teenage stuff.)

So, where's the death in this National Celebration Day thing?  Well, there is a very cool event called Death Over Dinner and it's going to happen on August 24.  Basically, you gather some people, you serve them food and you talk about death.  It's right up my alley.  I don't think I'm going to have it at my house, but at a restaurant, preferably one that doesn't serve sushi.

My birthday is coming up here in a few days.  It's also National Thriftshop day.  I like that, as I'm a big fan of buying other people's junk at a heavily discounted rate.  Here's my latest estate sale find.  I call him Chip. My cats do not like Chip.

So, do you think you might like to celebrate Death over Dinner day?  If so, tell me what you're making and who you're inviting.  I want to know.

I'm going to leave you with a song to celebrate my special day.

  1. Happy early birthday! Mine is tomorrow--National Angel Food Cake Day, National Relaxation Day, Best Friends Day, but also National Failures Day. Egad.

    I don't like Chip, either. Never have liked those creepy monkeys!

    1. Thank you! Happy Birthday to you too! Leos rock.
      I think Chip is just misunderstood.

  2. ooh, that monkey reminds me too much of a Stephen King story; I'd have left him on the shelf!

    1. Awwwww. He's cute. And he's a very enthusiastic cymbal player.
