  1. Lea Thompson’s 48 this year?!


    I should’ve got in earlier and put dibs on May 8th being new Star Trek day, but seeing as we’ve already celebrated William Shatner’s and Leonard Nimoy’s birthdays I won’t grumble too much!

  2. Eros: Oh yeah, singing incoherently can work both with alcohol or without. It’s your call. :)

    NoRegrets: Yeah it’ll be easy for me too. Just the fact that I post videos on YouTube is enough for my mom’s disapproval! I’m such a rebel.

    Churlita: Oo ouch, yeah I never thought of it from that angle. If you’re going to celebrate Goose day, do so responsibly.

    Laura B.: You are very clever and fun! Every last one of you! It’s gonna be another fun month.

    Tim: I know! Somehow seeing her age makes me feel older.

    And not to worry about the 8th being Star Trek day. You’ve been sick and had car misadventures. I just made the edit and May 8th will also be “Beam Me Up, Scotty” Day for the big event.

  3. I’m looking forward to Sing Incoherently day. I think I’ll try it out at the grocery store, stealthily grabbing the intercom and letting out my marvelous incoherent song. It will probably be about food.
