You've been thunderstruck...
Call me...

Four days of the week, she thinks I'm the enemy...

Just a deuce of quick notes here for all of you...

Overthehedge_1 DaveCago 2006
Yes, the day nears! Dave will be in Chi-Town this weekend and, on Saturday, a bunch of us bloggers will be getting together at a place called Piece in Wicker Park/Bucktown for pizza, beer, and general nothingness.

So far, it will be Dave, Jenny, RW, Chanakin (I think), Mocha (I think), Gary (perhaps), and myself. In terms of non-bloggers, Katie is going to be there as well as my brother and sister-in-law for added fun.

I think there might be someone that I'm missing on that list. In fact, I'm pretty convinced I'm missing someone. If you are that someone, I apologize. Just let me know.

I love agenda-less get togethers.

And this is going to be one cool group of blogger peeps.

It's still open to anyone who wants to come on by. Just let us know so we can plan on an extra seat or two.

International _____ Day
I've become a contributor at a site known as International _____ Day. This is a fun little site that seeks to make a holiday out of every day of the year.

They took the month of May off for whatever reason. But now the site is returning and the number of contributing writers has bumped up from six to 10.

My contributions will be up on June 2, 11, and 22 and I'm quite proud of them. I hope you enjoy them as well.

I will probably devote a little time each week to highlight the coming week's holidays. So here's what we've got so far for the coming week...

  • Thursday, June 1 - International Be Ferris Bueller Day
  • Friday, June 2 - International Banana in the Tailpipe Day
  • Saturday, June 3 - International Styrofoam Day
  • Sunday, June 4 - International Disconnect Day
  • Monday, June 5 - International Chuck Norris Day

I'd provide links to them, but, obviously, these posts won't go live until their given day. So add the site to your aggregator and check for new posts each day.

Oh, and I'm taking suggestions for July. I'm trying to stick to a funny movie/food theme and I will need scenes that have some good dialogue as that plays into each of my posts.

Just keep Hallmark away from that site. I don't need another pointless Hallmark holiday! Don't give them reason to try and sell more cards or trinkets. :)


Ugh - June 3rd sounds horrific!! The noise that styrofoam makes makes my blood run cold!!

ms. sizzle

oooh! i can't wait for be ferris bueller day! awesome! i am totally going to call in sick and ride in a parade. woo!


Oh, for a moment there, I thought you were referring to The Happy Blank Day Blog. Cool, I'll add "International ___ Day" to my Bloglines.

Hope you guy have a fab time this weekend with all you bloggers. Wish I could be there.

Tracy Lynn

If you hate styrofoam, than June 3rd is definitely going to be your day, I promise.
So psyched you're joining us at International___Day! The last one was a blast, and I think this one is going to rock, too.


MIM, hmmm... that might be a good cross-promotion for the site. But you've gotta admit that at least these are fun holidays!

Bre, it is blood curdling, isn't it?

Sizzle, I want to lead the Chicago throngs in "Twist & Shout".

Karl, nope, a different (and better) one! Wish you could be, too.

Tracy Lynn, blame Hyperion for it. He called down the thunder, well now he's got it!


As long as I don't have to buy a card eventually, these holidays will be fun!


LOL this looks like a fun site! I've already blogrolled, and am looking forward to this month's special days / daze. :-) Kinda bummed I missed out on April 27 International Delurk Day, will have to keep it in mind for next year? teehehehe!


I wish I could meet up witcha guys in Chitownn :(. The next one is in C-land, ok??? You should post pics for sure!

I will check out your site. SOunds FUN!!!


MIM, but these would be fun cards!

lynne, I can't guarantee it'll exist next year. We may just have to post all new ones entirely. ;-)

Jacquie, I think you should come to Chicago. Your house is being worked on so now is the perfect time to get away! Would C-land be Cleveland? Or does the word "land" not relate to the city name at all (like "ChiTown") and perhaps it means Cincy instead? I've never been to Cleveland. Been to Cincy plenty when I lived in Kentucky; but never Cleveland. And I do want to hit up the Rock Hall.


I'm there!!! Wait, I'm in L.A. Never mind.


A whole day dedicated to Chuck Norris? I LOVE it!
If you can see Chuck Norris, he can see you. If you can't see Chuck Norris you may be only seconds away from death.

Chuck Norris recently had the idea to sell his urine as a canned beverage. We know this beverage as Red Bull.

When Chuck Norris plays Oregon Trail his family does not die from cholera or dysentery, but rather roundhouse kicks to the face. He also requires no wagon, since he carries the oxen, axels, and buffalo meat on his back. He always makes it to Oregon before you


jackt, you know you wanna... all the cool kids are doing it.

Elaine, I should introduce you to my brother. That first Chuck fact you listed is also his favorite. Scary. He recites it from memory.


Bannana in tailpipe day? They must have days for everything, i can understand chuck norris (check up the movie "top dog" on imdb for proof of his kickassedness), but styrofoam and bannana in tailpipe?
Hopefully there will be "Blogger Day" where all the bloggers can get off work/school etc, aswell as getting free food whereever they go.


Cool! International Day should be great! I had to turn it down this time due to commitments but it was a lot of fun. I look forward to your days!


CougFan, you can't tell me you have a problem with Eddie Murphy?!? That would be filmic blasphemy! (Actually, I'm not as big a fan of Beverly Hills Cop as I used to be, but you can't beat the banana in the tailpipe scene). Blogger Day would be a wonderful gift!

ChickyBabe, thanks! Think you might come back in the future?


Actually, there already IS an International Webloggers Day, June 14th. I did a list for it last year on Chronic Listaholic. Here's the link for this year's info: International Webloggers Day.


I'll be there on Saturday! I'm a blog friend of Kelly.


Oh, you're in trouble now because the sky has parted and a booming voice from the heavens told me that I COULD COME TO CHICAGO AND PARTY WITH Y'ALL.


Kelly will be serving as my proxy, and let it be noted that I am maddeningly, painfully jealous and sad. Seriously. I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be, and you're all just rubbing it in. DARN you all, that I love you so.


SJ, think I can get off work for that one?

Ariana, cool! Looking forward to meeting you. Are you a fellow Illinoisan, as well? Okay, never mind that question. It was thought up before I did the commonsense thing and checked your site, which very clearly states "Chicago." Duh.

Mocha, and we thought the recent storm system was bad. There was some good in those stormclouds after all!

Belinda, and we love you, too. We do wish you could be here. Perhaps if we make this an annual thing, you can come next year?


I am still upset that I cannot join you all in Chicago. Will you be doing it again next year? :(


Kilax, we might try. No word just yet. We will have to see how it goes.


Happy Styrofoam Day!

Sorry I can't be there in Chi-town. It would have been nice to actually spend time in the city rather than stare at the inside of a conference room at the Comfort Inn O'Hare for two days.

Next time. Promise.


If time permits, yes.


Chanakin, and happy International Chuck Norris Day to you. Hope to see you next time.

ChickyBabe, cool. I hope you do contribute next go round.
