Love Your Robot! Change Your Name! Take Your Houseplants For A Walk!

I almost forgot that today is "Love Your Robot Day"! I had no idea, just wandering around aimlessly, eating terrible Chinese food and generally making a nuisance of myself. If I actually owned a robot, I am quite sure that I would harbor feelings of love for it, especially if it washed my dishes and did my taxes. I really should have been out celebrating, throwing confetti, wearing a festive lampshade and drinking something with tiny umbrellas; instead of which, I've been throwing dirty clothes in the hamper, wearing slippers and drinking apple juice-with-no-umbrellas.

I also missed "Disaster Day" on February 5th, which is really quite surprising.

February 13th is coming up, though. That's "Get a Different Name Day", so I've decided that everyone can start calling me Charlotte.

"National Sea Monkey Day" is on February 15th. I accidentally killed my last batch of Sea Monkeys, so I think I'll give this one a pass.

March 3rd? How could you forget? That's "What if Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day"!

Other Notable Holidays:
January 7 — "I'm Not Going to Take it Anymore Day"
January 22 — "Answer Your Cat's Question Day" (do we really want to know?)
March 15 — "Everything You Think Is Wrong Day" (I thought this was every day!)
March 30 — "I Am In Control Day" (I thought this was every day too)
April 4 — "Tell-a-Lie Day" (I will celebrate with gusto)
July 10 — "Don't Step on A Bee Day"
August 18 — "Bad Poetry Day"
September 5 — "Be Late For Something Day"
October 30 - "Haunted Refrigerator Day"
November 20 - "Name your PC Day" (Edgar P. Thompson)


*** And don't forget to mark your calendars for "Take Your Houseplants For a Walk Day" on July 27th!

Dammit. Why'd those stupid cats and dogs have to have there opposable thumb wish-a-thon on my birthday!

(That was my subtle way of telling you that March 3rd is my birthday. A list of suggested gifts will be mailed to you shortly).

I'm getting all geared up for March 3rd. Everything is going along swimmingly, I just need to keep my dog from chewing on the transplanted thumb that I stapled to her this evening.

It's tough being me, I tell ya.

Charlotte,
Do you think it's wise to change one's name on the day before Valentine's Day?

You forgot the following:

February 26 - Get drunk and watch the crazy bride make an ass out of herself day
March 5 - Get drunk and wear a big hat day

Two days that will surely go down in the official "Stupid days that don't mean anything to anyone else" book.
