I’m partial to #3, but as “Hold Me Closer Tony Danza Awareness Month.” One of my favorite misunderstood lyrics of all time.

Elizabeth’s comment CRACKS me up.

I couldn’t come up with a complete list. After “Secret Asian Man” day, I sort of ran out of ideas.

This is brilliant. So, um, exactly how does one celebrate All Taints Day?

Kerry May 11, 2009 at 5:15 pm

“All Shallow’s Eve” is freakin’ perfect.

Some of these should be Twitter things, because they are way better than Follow Friday.

Also, your new RSS subscribe icon thingies are amazing. I have RSS subscribe thingy envy.

@eliz–I’m not sure (not catholic). :)

@Kerry, I found them on deviant art. Or a version of them, anyway. There are some really cool things on there if you have the time to browse for a while.
