UNTIMELY MOZILLA CRASH TROLLS ME! Dx An hour of typing, gone... again. ;_; Aaaarrrrgggghhhh...
Today, we've got five holidays and one anniversary.
Take a Hike Day
Use Less Stuff
National Unfriend Day
Great American Smokeout
Homemade Bread Day
Suez Canal's Anniversary
Take a Hike Day isn't the day to tell everyone to sod off; it's literal. Today's the day (earlier...) to take a hike in your local wilderness; if ya have any nearby, that is.
Use Less Stuff Day is what it is; use less energy today, replace disposable things with their longer lasting counterparts (metal utensils instead of plastic, rags and towels instead of paper towels, etc.). Some people also extend the day until Thanksgiving, since wasting less is certainly a way of giving thanks to... er, the environment?
National Unfriend Day is my kind of holiday. Today's the day to clean out that robust friend list of a couple hundred on your facebook or whatever the devil you youngin's use these days... Nobody in IRL has a couple hundred ****ing friends, so there's no point in having that many (whom you don't even talk to, probably) on the internets. And if you have no need to participate in this holiday for whatever reason, props for you.
Great American Smokeout is the day to quit smoking en masse. If you need support in quitting (I wouldn't blame you), you'll certainly be able to find someone from this day and onwards. Plenty of sites promoting the day are also promoting legitimate and known-to-work ways of quitting as well. I've known the addictive curses of nicotine, so this is my holiday pick of the day, no doubt.
Homemade Bread Day is a day to knead and bake your own bread. If you've never had fresh, homemade bread, YOU'RE ****IN' MISSING OUT! The fragrance of fresh bread is divine, and the taste is delicious without any need for butter or anythin' of the sort.
The Seuz Canal was made way back in 1859, and took an entire decade to complete, as well as thousands of lives lost in the process. As important of a waterway as it was, hot damn did it cause a lot of crisis and even wars... Then again, that's what happens with anything that valuable.
So, who else had once or currently does enjoy the pleasure of shoving tar into their lungs? >_>;
Yesterday's post coming soon.
