My apologies for giving so little warning. After all, Dec. 29th, International “International Make Up an International Day” Day, requires more than just muttering “Arrrrrrr!” and “Matey!”
So let events of the past year, or of this coming week, inspire you to immorality tality.. Approach them in the spirit of our first IIMUAIDD, International “Be More Like Me!” Day.
Something public-spirited, perhaps, like “Fumigate a Protestor” Day? Or more playful, like “Everyone Pretend to be Spartacus” Day.
We had four contestants last year, which doubled my expectations. Please do it again this time. Please. Beccause without that doubled estimate, we won’t have the two contestants necessary for an actual contest.
Thank you. You’ve got ten days!
Took a while to track down the reference post:
I’m still down with International Eliminate your Nemesis Day.
My list is just growing longer….
International “Be in Denial” Day. Because because if you don’t honor it, maybe you are honoring it, but it you do honor it, you’re probably not.
International “Wouldn’t you like to know?” Day. You have a secret that you’re not going to tell anybody that day, and you walk around looking knowing and smug about it.
International “That’s it?” Day. Celebrated the day after International “Wouldn’t you like to know?” Day. You find out that the secret that was withheld the previous day is totally innocuous.
I propose an International Science Babe Day … to be celebrated on November 7th, Marie Curie’s birthday, maybe?

Welcome aboard, GSB!
You’ve really gained a prominent place in our imagination. I’ll leave it at that, because to go into any more detail would be really embarrassing.
I support ISBD wholeheartedly!
Japanese kids all study Marie Curie’s life and achievement in primary and middle school. She’s probably bigger in Japan than in the U.S. The great women of history that every Japanese kid learns about are Helen Keller, Marie Curie, Florence Nightingale, Murasaki Shikibu and Mother Theresa.
I suppose I will for the most part revert to Garbo-channeling after this – but I just couldn’t resist sneaking this one in 🙂
Always enjoy reading the blog and everyone’s comments though!
The other German speaker is in Tokyo now, but, like another Austrian once said,
He’ll be baaaaaack.
