hey, all you number freaks!
today is 11/12/13 if you're in one of those countries with the silly month/day/year format that nearly nobody uses but you're emotionally attached to or jus or just 'murica, yeah.
i am conversant in both date formats and also don't pitch a hissy fit if you write "honour" or "colour" or "programme".
but any excuse for a festival, eh? today is a good reason to read dates in m/d/y format, because 11/12/13!!!
hello! how cool is that?
so today i am going to celebrate by making bread pudding - ok, i make a lot of bread pudding anyway this time of year, plus it is one of my favorite things to have for second breakfast.
yes, i eat second breakfast in my house. it has nothing to do with hobbits and everything to do with having eaten a light first breakfast at around 0400, so i simply do not last until noon without an intermediary meal.
anyway, i'm going to make bread pudding.
and then later i am going to make coconut rice pudding with mango, because i have a ripe mango.
i loves me some pudding.
so THAT'S what i'm doing to celebrate 11/12/13, and i will be making my official observance at 14:15, because.
i may die from delight.
you'll get another chance next year on 12/13/14, but after that you're done for another 987 years.
so make the best of it.
