  1. Great job on the calendar! I luv trying out some of the suggested activities, particularly when it involves food :) But those are some great creative ideas for those days when you just can’t think of anything fun to do–luv the 80s music appreciation day; I’m going to start digging up some good tunes and break out the old 80s dance moves.

  2. Laura B.: Thanks for the holidays you told me about! :)

    Churlita: Yeah the ice cream one should really be every day.

    Suze: I’m working on the swimsuit one too – slowly but surely. :)

    Manuel: Thank you, Manuel!

    Eros: Sounds like you have a fun idea there with busting out the 80s dance tunes on that day! I sense that “The Robot” will be part of those moves. :D

  3. Well, I won’t be celebrating tomorrow’s holiday, but I see mine coming up on the 13th. Also, I have some 80’s music, maybe I’ll share some of that.

  4. As it’s apt dwellers appreciation day, I’d like to say I like my apt’s location and maintenance people. I’m close to all the places I like and the staff is friendly and courteous. Also, I like having someone come fix stuff when it’s broken and do the landscaping for me. I almost feel like royalty :)

  5. Free standing gates with no walls crack me up. I would be appreciative of finding a collection (or creating one myself) of gates that “guard” walkways with no walls to back them up.

    How dumb would an intruder have to be to walk up to a walless gate and say, “Aw shucks. Guess I can’t get into this property.” ?

    p.s. I appreciate ice cream… a lot. But I think it’s the pregnancy talking. :P

  6. Dmarks: Thanks! Have fun with this list! I hope you do get to participate more!

    Tim: Oh yeah, waffle appreciation day? I hope to honor that one too.

    AlienCG: You should share some 80s music!

    Eros: Your apartment pros sound so much like mine. Gotta love the maintenance people. For the most part they have been extremely helpful since I’ve been here.

    K_sra: I’d prefer a dumb intruder who is confused by weird gates over a regular or intelligent intruder who knows all the tricks. The dumb intruders who are easily fooled are the ones who wind up on the show “Cops”. ;)

    Pregnant or not, ice cream is a good holiday to celebrate.

  7. You can sign me up for commit to more sleep day and desert snake appreciation! We have a king snake roaming about our yard, he eats the rattlers and scorpions. I like him.
