National Be Late for Something Day

The Usual Suspects are in near unanimous accord that today is Be Late for Something Day.

Meanwhile, regular visitors to The Blog of Days should notice that our daily posts go up here at 12:30am Chicago time (Central time in the U.S.). Regular visitors would notice that, if there were any.

The idea is that people all across America can wake up in the morning and decide what to celebrate today, or this evening, simply by consulting this webpage. Even folks in Europe can check this post out early enough in the morning that they, too, can plan their daily revels.

But, today, in honor of Be Late for Something Day, this post is going up at 12:45am.

See, we were late for something -- right? Get it?

No, we didn't think it was much of a hook either.

But there aren't a lot of alternatives today, anyway. It is Cheese Pizza Day and National Shrink Day. However, with regard to the latter, our crack research department was unable to ascertain whether "shrink" in this usage refers to psychiatrists or to shrink wrap packaging. With microminiholidayettes, one never can tell. Perhaps you can mummify yourself in plastic wrap and make an appointment with a mental health professional. If you think that's a good idea, you probably need one anyway.
