Free the piggies

I’m not saying you should necessarily do anything special with your feet, but it’s No Socks Day and if that leads you to something wonderful, hooray!  All you have to do to celebrate is let those little piggies free.  Well, technically all you have to do to celebrate is let those little piggies free, for an added bonus you should make sure your piggies are free worthy.  Now, if you have a toe length abnormality, there isn’t much you can do about that, but if your abnormality is accompanied by dirty toenails, ash and enough foot-1575105_1280dead skin for a 6th toe, you should handle that before celebrating today.

Technically, today is only calling for you to release your toes from the bondage of socks, stockings, and tights.  You aren’t in violation if you are wearing sandals or shoes without socks.  Keep that last part in mind if your feet are gross.  If you have a foot fetish, the odds are in your favor today.  If feet totally wig you out, the odds are in your favor too, just not in a good way.  If you’re looking for ways to honor the feet that get you from A to B and the toes that keep you balanced, a massage or pedicure are in order.

An added bonus for the environment is that No Socks Day will lighten your laundry load and save about six droplets of water in your next wash.  Yeah, you’ve done a good deed for the week.  You’re such the philanthropist.  Have fun and…


Forget the Ooommmmm….

It’s World Laughter Day and in case you aren’t in the know, laughing yoga is a thing and has been official since 1995.   When you laugh, your body releases a lot of good stuff, like endorphins and cortisol.  Here’s the rub, your body doesn’t know if your laughter is genuine or contrived, ergo you can laugh your way to health.

Dr. Kataria together with his yoga instructing wife, Madhuri, formed Laughing Yoga in 1995 and to quote a website they are “blazing a happy trail across the world.”  In addition to getting high on hormones, there are studies showing real health benefits of clapping, laughing, and pouring air drinks, which are just a few of the Laughing Yoga exercises.

I suggest celebrating by inviting all your friends over for a fun circle and following a Youtube instructional to laugh yourself to better health.  HA HA HA…


Lap It Up!

There is absolutely no reason to be dehydrated today.    It’s National Beverage Day!   If you celebrated Cinco de Mayo with más libations yesterday, you should probably celebrate today with más aqua or some strong coffee.  If you didn’t celebrate, NPR reported bottles of Bombay Sapphire are on the shelves that were accidentally bottled with 154 proof ethanol.  Although this is safe to drink, it may not feel too good as a shot. You should probably mix it–WELL!  But, if you get your hands on one of these babies, it will definitely catch you up.  Don’t’ go overboard, you can still die from alcohol poisoning!


For those of you who only shoot straight!  Beverage day celebrates all beverages.  It doesn’t discriminate based on origin or ingredients.  So indulge in your juices, sodas, flavored water, fizzy drink, smoothies, hot beverage, cold beverage, beverages with shrimp in them, beverages without shrimp in them, protein beverages, beverages that are purple, beverages that are all colors, really there is no bev that doesn’t count.   So drink up and…



Don’t worry about your fly

You won’t need these today.  It’s International No Pants Day, or Trousers (depending on where you live)!   Why drop your pants? Well, according to my source, it started off as a senior prank at the University of Texas and eventually gained momentum from there.  It is celebrated everywhere from London to Finland, including France, Sweden, Australia, and Canada.  Why join the crowd? I guess just good old fashion fun and it challenges you not to take yourself or others too seriously.
underpants-54117_1280Now, if you’re going to play, don’t cheat by wearing a kilt, skirt, shorts, capris, or any other item of clothing beyond underwear below the waist.  I also don’t think it counts if you celebrate by lounging in your knickers at home on the couch.  If that were the case, I celebrate No Pants Day, every day.  So if you’re down for a little adventure, celebrate today sans pants.  I wouldn’t suggest trying this at work unless you own the joint and don’t subscribe to the no sexual harassment policy or should I say law.  I’m not sure celebrating this holiday will hold up in court as a defense.   It’s definitely not a congressional holiday, although we know politicians have removed their trousers at work.  Anyhow, I digress.  It’s No Pants Day.  I imagine your socks should probably be stunning! Have fun, strut around in your knickers and…

Holiday Celebrate we must.

It’s International Star Wars Day!    I’m not a huge Sci-fi buff, but I dated a guy who was and that kinda sorta got me into them.  By kinda sort into them, I mean I had a nice collection of light sabers and would invite people to come play Star Wars with me, whether it was a regular day or a first date.  It was kind of my way to test their imagination and childlike wonder.  This fact would probably be more adorable if I hadn’t been in my mid 20’s at the time.  It could only have gotten weirder if I had costumes.  No, I didn’t have costumes!

You should celebrate today, by watching all of the Star Wars (yes, I said all), but I recommend a very specific order.  First watch the original 3, then watch the remastered versions of the original three.  Then, watch the rest of the films in the order of their release date.  Don’t skip the original 3! Have fun, HOLIDAY ON, and…

May the Fourth Be With You!


Will it go away?

Take today literally, metaphorically or both, it’s Lumpy Rug Day!


It’s Spring!  Unless you bought it that way, a lumpy rug may mean it’s time to do a little Spring cleaning or replacing.   If under the rug is where you continuously sweep your dirt until you forget about it and a lump is the only thing left to remind you, you’re nasty. Whip out the Rug Doctor, shampoo, cleaning tools, and get busy until that damn spot comes out.  You might also try trimming those bumps and stragglers that have accumulated over the years.  If your carpet doesn’t look like new after some TLC it may be time to upgrade for a less lumpy rug.

It’s Spring!  Unless you’d like to drive yourself or someone else crazy with bottled up emotions, unpack your stuff.  If you’re habitually passive aggressive or worse sweep all your junk under the rug, today is the day to do a little Spring cleaning.  Spill your guts to your friends, family, mate, your pet or the person in the mirror.  It’s time to clean the mess that’s blocking your blessings and vision.  You might also try trimming those bumps and stragglers that have accumulated over the years.  If they are real, they can handle everything about you, if they aren’t, it may be time to upgrade to a circle that will cause fewer lumps under your rug.

Babies, babies, babies!

Since I have baby fever and a very real yearning to give my nephew a cousin, today I’m celebrating Baby Day!  Rather than tributing truffles, that look like herpes and smell like feet or downing a box of chocolate truffles with more calories and sugar than I’m allowed to have, I’d rather reach out and grab a squishy, little, soft bundle of baby. Celebrate today by either making or playing with a baby, your choice.   Have loads of fun and…
