The Inter-/national Day Thread


  • American Pet Photo Day
  • 7-Eleven Day (?)
  • Cheer Up The Lonely Day
  • Blueberry Muffin Day

Well, Pet Photos sound manageable and cheering up a lonely person sounds like something one should do more than once a year…

For giggles:

Yes! I’m going to go to my local 7-Eleven to get a free Slurpee and buy some blueberry muffins, go home and take a picture with my seven cats!

I was lonely and doing all of that cheered me up!


On the menu today we have:

  • Kebab Day
  • Pecan Pie Day
  • Etch A Sketch Day
  • Simplicity Day
  • New Conversations Day

I guess there’s something for everyone and I’ll keep this post short and simple :wink:

Another day:

  • French Fries Day
  • Embrace Your Geekness Day
  • International Rock Day

Oh my, embracing Geekness doesn’t need a Day, but a Year! Considering this is a games forum, there are enough people on here who embraced their Geekness already…

While International Rock Day means actual rocks, this is somehow fitting anyway:


Today is:

  • Shark Awareness Day

  • Pandemonium Day

  • Mac and Cheese Day

  • Grand Marnier Day

I’m going to watch Sharknado or Jaws while causing pandemonium in the kitchen trying to make Mac and Cheese. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Pandemonium describes my usual day…
Matter of fact, we’re having Mac and Cheese today. Total coincidence, but it counts anyway :wink:

And I’ll add this:

I just realized I forgot to put in the word “the”!


Sorry, I’m really tired.

Did someone say Pandemonium? 2 is my preference, and by far one of my all time favorites. Everyone should play it. This may be my favorite level.


I’ve heard about that game!

It was developed by the same people who made the Spyro Reignited Trilogy, the Skylanders series and a lot of licensed games.

And it was published by Crystal Dynamics if I recall correctly. (AKA the people who made the recent Tomb Raider games.)

Interesting fact:

Today is

  • National Nude Day

and also

  • National Tape Measure Day

Now I’m not saying there’s a connection, but it seems a weird coincidence…


Uhm, this Day is slightly boring:

  • Gummi Worm Day
  • Pet Fire Safety Day
  • Tapioca Pudding Day

Well, I hope tomorrow makes up for this one…


I love gummi worms, so boring or not I’m in.

Does that make it more amusing? :wink:

As someone who lost a beloved pet in a house fire, I can’t emphasize enough how important this day is. If you don’t have emergency plans that take your entire family into account I urge you all to rectify that immediately, if not sooner.


I don’t have any gummy worms or tapioca pudding.

But I will save my seven cats if my house catches on fire.

In fact, it does.

New celebrations:

  • Guinea Pig Appreciation Day
  • World Snake Day

And one for @paulothead

  • National Personal Chef Day

I hope you get the appreciation you deserve :wink:


I guess it’s the perfect time to watch G-Force!

If you must appreciate your Guinea Pig, make sure to use the appropriate condiments. :smirk:

Not pretty, but by all reports tasty

Celebrate by watching Snakes on a Plane. That’s how I want to.

Too bad I’m celebrating this one with a planned tofu dinner. I’ll have to make up for that with a loin of pork tomorrow.


A friend of mine travelled South America including Peru for 6 months. He confirms your reports.


I hope to confirm it myself one day. Maybe when the kiddo is a little older. Or if I find a place here that will serve it. Doubtful, but not impossible.

Today on our menu:

  • National Tattoo Day
  • National Hot Dog Day
  • National Lottery Day

And for those not into letters:

  • World Emoji Day :wink:

Obviously some people take Emojis very serious…


These are my favorite “emojis”:


I prefer to call them emoticons because I’m old.
