a little something extra

did you know...

that today is National Margarita Day?

Well, would the Worldwide Web lie to you??

Go forth and honor the day with tequila, triple sec and fresh lime juice. Personally, I'll take mine on the rocks with salt.

Other favorites coming up on the Holiday Calendar:

the Italian Feast of the Incappuciati, which is tomorrow, when we lament the woeful fate of those who can't get their morning coffee with steamed milk, and are thus incappuciated

National Chocolate Souffle Day, on the 28th. If you're reading this, you probably have my mailing address -- feel free to send festal libations on that day. (The 28th is also Kalevala Day. Salmon and chocolate... yummm...)

And March 1, Whuppity Scoorie Day in Scotland. What do you think that one means? Post theories in the comments.

Hurray!

I like your explanation of "incappucciati" better than the literal "unhooded".

Also, don't forget the beer on Kalevala Day...

D'oh, should be "hooded", not "unhooded". Silly prefix!

Cripes, but my coffee is lacking the appropriate "hood." Alas, woe is me (am I?).

Re the Whuppityy Scoorie conjectures...I assume it has something to do with oatmeal and sheep. But I am not entirely certain.

You poor incappuciatus, you.

Oatmeal and/or sheep are a safe ingredient bet when trying to define anything Scottish!
