The greatest achievement
was at first and for a time a dream.
The oak sleeps in the acorn,
the bird waits in the egg, . . .
Dreams are the seedlings of realities.
~ James Allen
Today is also Brownielocks Day to celebrate all the non-blondes in the world. So what the heck, eat a brownie to celebrate. Tell ’em I said so. I like mine with walnuts. Too bad it’s not also Nut Day.
Today is also the day to celebrate The Comedy Hall of Fame. Let’s see if we have any comedians born on this day. Phew. I found one. I admit the name didn’t ring a bell, but Stephen Merchant (1974) writes comedy for the likes of Ricky Gervais whom I LOVE on the show ‘Derek,’ so I’m guessing Stephen’s a good guy. Happy birthday, Stephen. P.S.: Please tell Ricky I vote that there be season after season of new ‘Derek’ episodes. I love ‘Derek.’
Other birthdays today honor Scott Joplin (1868) and 110 years later Katherine Heigl (1978).
It is also both Mother Goose Day and Tie One On Day. I’m betting the former never celebrated the latter. But then again, one ought not make assumptions about another’s internal life based on the external presence in which they walk around. But I do hope Mother Goose has a brownie and not a flask tucked away. It’ll be Tie One On Day again in two days.
Best of all, it’s Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day over on a month full of Smiley Silliness . Go for it. Only you can!!! Your uniqueness is celebrated as the number one thing to be grateful for in the new book A Smiley Book of Numbers. BTW, the Smileys on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here in the Daily Smiley.
Plus, as is often the case, the Egg Smiley you get in the Smiley-a-Day emailer is different from what you see here.
