Cherry Saturday 3-7-2014

Today must be the dullest day in history; there are NO holidays that I can find, and I consult lists that include things like Ugly Rug Day. Clearly this must rectified. We are now accepting nominations for a March 7 holiday in the comments. Knock yourselves out. Or wait until Sunday which is Be Nasty Day.

  1. March 7 is:
    National Be Heard Day
    National Cereal Day
    National Crown of Roast Pork Day
    …and National Day of Unplugging started at sundown on the 6th and goes ’til sundown today. But I haven’t unplugged for a second so I’ll have to wait ’til next year…

    …I’m all about cereal and pork. I don’t have many problems being heard so yay for the foodstuffs!

    1. You could coat that pork roast in crushed, seasoned corn flakes! Celebrate two holidays with one effort πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, it can be.
      Tomorrow, unless Wunderground lies, is the beginning of no more days below zero (nights are another story). That’s all I want. A Big Melt.

    2. I can better empathize with your pain having just spent 6 days in New York City (at its coldest about 10 degrees, plus two snow storms and one rain storm and twice stepping in a puddle of cold icy slush that came over the top of my shoe. Oh, and one cold sunny day – Central Park was spectacular ). This was our celebration of our 45th anniversary: Jonas Kaufman singing at the Met (he got sick and cancelled the day we left Portland for New York), a walk along the Highline (it rained towards the end and did not stop), a walk along the West River (cold south(?) wind so we sat in a little French restaurant and ate pastries) and more museums then we really wanted to see but we were out of the cold so it was good. But ye gods, you guys live with this all winter long every year? We came home to Portland about midnight and it was about 45degrees and I did not even bother to put on my coat to go to the car it felt so warm. We will undoubtedly return to NYC but probably not between November and March.

      P.S. Even without Jonas the operas were spectacular.

        1. Heat + trapped by tall buildings in narrow streets + odors from garbage left for collection on the sidewalks.

  2. I’m having Light Cues Day, where we sit in a dark auditorium and work our way through the show constructing and recording each light cue. I’m working with high school kids. They are amazing. Anyone who starts a “kids these days” rant will get some serious pushback from me. These kids are kind to each other, kind to me, work hard at thankless tasks, and are astonishingly disciplined in the face of people who have zero idea about what they do and how hard it is.

    Also in the signs of spring department there has been liquid water on the roads for the last several days. Although it has also been well below freezing at night. Which means the potholes are developing well, and maple syrup season is swinging into high gear.

  3. I declare this lose your temper with your family day, an occasion I have fulfilled with a full on rant at the DH and boys for their total crapness. It is UK Mother’s Day next Sunday, so in honour, I declare this weekend Feminine Explosion Day. A sort of preamble to International Women’s Day tomorrow.

  4. It’s Binocular Vision day for me. Just had my second cataract surgery this afternoon – the surgeon put on an extra session to clear his waiting list. Can already see something with the operated-on eye, and I should now have balanced vision – well, after six weeks or so, anyway. It’s been frustrating being one-eyed for reading and computing. So this is a Good Day.

    By the way, this surgery was much faster than the first op, and I didn’t feel anything. Just like everyone said it would be. I realize that the half-hour delay last time after I was anaesthetized, before I went into theatre (due to some complication with the patient before me) must have meant that the anaesthetic was starting to wear off a bit. And the op was longer – I think part of the old lens must have fallen down into the back of the eye, as they’d warned me could happen. Anyway, this time all was much smoother – as I gather cataract surgery usually is.

      1. I would have LOVED Be Boring Day! Instead, we had Damn Drama Day, as my sis moved stuff out of her soon-to-be ex’s house. (Not soon enough, in my opinion.) Cranky, crying, and cops! I’m just glad it’s over.

  5. I’m voting for National Melt the Snow Day. Or even just Ice Melting Day. I am SO tired of creeping my way across the door yard to the garage like an 100 year old woman praying I don’t fall and concuss myself again.

    Usually I like snow and cold – my body runs so hot all the time, but I’m sick of it. So After March 7 any day that hasn’t warmed to above 32 degrees F by 7 am a national holiday is declared and no one has to get out of bed. That really should be a regional holiday, but what the hell, One American gets to stay in bed then they all do! I’m very generous that way.

  6. I’d like this to be National Take a Long Nap Day as they’re screwing around with the time again tonight.

    1. That’s Sunday since they screwed with the time. Someone needs to stop this nonsense. Maybe I should move to Arizona where there is sunshine, warmth & no daylight savings.

  7. Today is the beginning of St. Patrick’s anti-Lent, that 10 day period leading up to St. Patrick’s Day when occasional drinkers build up their alcohol tolerance by increasing their alcohol consumption every day up to March 17th and generally not observing Lent!

  8. I vote for buy yarn day. I made the mistake of searching ebay for yarn lots. So many pretties.

    1. Every day is Buy Yarn Day.
      I’d show you my stash, but it’s a source of shame. And delight as long as I don’t show it to anybody.

    2. I did the ebay yarn binge a few years ago. It still took a few years till I gave myself a strict policy of “only buy yarn for a specific project”. I don’t stick to it.

  9. Yesterday, March 6 was anniversary of the day the Alamo fell. Alamo Day. In San Antonio, today’s the day we cleaned the pool to get ready for summer. It’s also spring break, so tonight we’re having a Harry Potter marathon. So far, we’re up to Prisoner of Azkaban.

  10. Use up the frozen puff pastry cluttering up the freezer day doesn’t sound very catchy, but pioneer woman’s apple tart looks easy to make.

    Also on a side note, is anyone else watching Scorpion, it made it to the UK, currently one of my favourite shows on TV

  11. Sherbet Day! Because as of yesterday, I had six inches of gray sherbet in the driveway. I am delighted that spring is coming, even though I know we gotta get through mud season first.

    (Plus, I like sherbet, the dessert. Make mine small scoops of lemon, lime and orange.)

  12. I submit “Stay in Bed All Day” day. That is pretty much what I did yesterday. Sooooo nice. Air outside bed cold…bed warm…why leave?
