We all get a "bonus" day tomorrow.

Just learned a new word. It is an "intercalary" day.

Any plans? Will you make more money this year just because you got an extra day?

Did you plan for this?

I know I didn't.

Neighbor told me she was relieved actually cause it give her an extra day to scrape up the rent.

    I hadn't thought of it before, but now that you mention it, it means I have to wait one whole extra day until Lexi's first birthday party on March 19th...

      Yep. There are positives and negatives - but try to focus on the positives!

      It could be an extra day to plan more things to do on that birthday.

        There's that, and the fact that I'll still get my leather sofa in February rather than in March. The delivery screw up doesn't seem so bad if I look at it that way.

        Thanks!

        Just think - if you were born on the 29th (which a pair of twins I knew in high school were), your 10th birthday you would be 40!

          • My heart goes out to alla the conjoined twins born either side of the 28/29 divide.

            As if lifelong arguments about clothin' ownership an' cheatin' on partners were not enough, now they gotta be at one another's throat about the age of shared body parts -- a horrible reality made even more unbearable if they only got the one frickin' throat between 'em.

              Why don't we get the extra day in the summer?

              That is so mean.

              Gonna console myself with the grim reality that tomorrow is my bi-biannular opportunity to wrestle guys to the ground for a more socially acceptable reason than plain assault.

              Jus" my luck the new guy in the bookstore is such a wimpo.

              Bookstore,..eh! Like the superhero mask Princess, you must have seen Deadpool?




              Pssst!

              Princess, it's because we don't live in Australia. Shane and Whatever do get the extra day in the summer. [IMG]file:///C:UsersShaneAppDataLocalTempmsohtml11clip_image00 2.gif[/IMG]

          Oh forgot! Yes, it is summer down there right now. LOL, "down there."

          Sunday was beautiful here. Actually was sitting out with short sleeves on for a bit.

          Glass of wine in the early evening knocked me right out and wide awake now - way too early to be up.

          Yeah, but south of the equator, they get the extra day at the end of August! Otherwise, the earth would get out of tilt after a few centuries. Simple physics!

    I was hoping that my email inbox would be flooded with marriage proposals today, but all I got was the usual lewd propositions from some guy in Wooster, Ohio.

    Very disappointed.

    I have a good friend who was born on February 29. Every year when his birthday comes around I drink a toast in his honor, anticipating the day he can drink in celebration with me. Even though we were born in the same year, and he before I, he just turned 15 because of leap year. In 24 years he'll finally be 21 and we can have a cold one together. I just hope I'm still around to celebrate with him. Damn kids.
