Swing Set Day
How do you like
to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think
it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
~ Robert Louis Stevenson
And ever a grown up, too!
~ Ruth Kaiser
Happy Birthday to Helen Reddy of I am Woman Hear Me Roar and Optimism Blues fame. She was born this day in 1941. Pablo Picasso (1881) share this day with Helen. Happy birthday to you both. Now there’s a dinner party I’d like to attend.
I stumble upon something I think is pretty cool. You know I’m always blah-blahing about talking to strangers. Well there’s a kickstarter project posted by a couple of S.F. guys who also think engaging with strangers is fun. Hope you check it out. Looking at kickstarter projects is almost as fun as looking at Ted talks.
It’s also Pasta Day (again…wasn’t it just Pasta Day back on the 17th?). I could celebrate this one every day! On the other hand it’s Greasy Food Day. That one, we ought stick to celebrating only now and then! Oh, but I do love French Fries! Make it a French Fry that falls into my martini and forms a Smiley Face, and I’m in heaven!
Over on a month full of Smiley Silliness, it’s Punk Rock Day. I love the punk scene. So full of exuberance and spunk.
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here on the website’s Daily Smiley.
