Eliza Doolittle Day
Honoring the character, from the play Pygmalion and the My Fair Lady movies, who showed the importance of speaking one’s native language.

All I want is a room somewhere,
Far away from the cold night air,
With one enormous chair.
Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly?

And to help celebrate the day here is a video clip of Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn) singing Wouldn’t It Be loverly? from My Fair Lady.

Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly?
Loverly, loverly, loverly, loverly

International Sea Monkey Day
Ahh yes sea monkeys. The greatest hoax fostered upon children worldwide! Oh how they seduced us with those colorful advertisements of smiling, dancing sea life. There was Mom, Dad, Buffy and Scooter! It was an underwater Ozzy and Harriet world and we wanted in!

But then – “What the hell was this?” Where’s my smiling Whoville-like sea critters?

Oh how Mother needed to console us that day, as we experienced our first taste of the bitterness of what life had in store. Oh the shame, the unjustice, the therapy.
