i know i'm not giving you a lot of notice with this one, but all you people living in the US and possibly our friendly neighbors may be interested to know that tomorrow, 24 september 2010, is NATIONAL PUNCTUATION DAY!
i wish i could tell you that i have never interrupted an intimate moment with a commentary on the correct use of the semicolon, but i would be lying.
i also celebrate national grammar day (march fourth), but it's a long way off on the calendar. i only mention it so you will have time to buy me lovely gifts.
also this weekend is smithsonian magazine museum day, on which many museums nationwide are FREE if you print up your participating ticket. you should at least go and check which of your local museums are free on saturday.
here's what's available near me.
