Within is the fountain of good,
and it will ever bubble up,
if thou wilt ever dig.
~ Marcus Aurelius
Today is also Hippo Day. I actually have a hands on, as in hand in the mouth of a hippo story!
Additionally, we celebrate Gum Drop Day. Well not we, as in not me. I’ve never been a fan of fruity candies. I’m a chocolate girl all the way. Nothing poofty foofty for me, just a good old Hershey bar (throw in a jar of peanut butter and I’ll grin from ear to ear). But, as I think of it, wouldn’t yesterday have been a better day to celebrate this candy?
The above comment is extra appropriate being that February 15th is also Half Price Chocolate Day!
Today we say happy birthday to Amber Riley (1986) who plays the wonderful Mercedes on Glee. I love her spunk, as well as her voice. Spit and vinegar always appeal to me. Also birthday remembrances for Susan B. Anthony (1820). Another spunky February birthday girl! There are a lot of us (yep, my birthday is in 2 days!!) And of course we mustn’t forget the hysterically funny Harvey Korman (1927).
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.
Plus, as is often the case, the Fountain Smiley you get in the Smiley-a-Day emailer is different from what you see here.
