Bad Idea: Day Day.

Nothing much is happening in my life. I work and come home and do a few other little things. I occasionally come up with something that would make an amusing/interesting post, but I forget it or decide it's stupid later. That's why I don't say much these days. That being said, have one of my Bad Ideas.

Holidays. North Americans really take to the idea of the nationally recognized holiday; we have many of them, some of them rather ridiculous (such as George Bush Jr.'s Marrige week fiasco). So, here's my addition to the calander-cramming orgy: Day Day.

Day Day, the Day of Days. It's all holidays combined into one. People dress up, remember stuff, have parades, give food to one another, make big feasts, have big religious ceremonies, try to scare one another -- if it happens on any holiday anywhere, it's a part of Day Day. It will be a celebration of celebrations, a party for parties, a ritual of rituals -- a meta-holiday, if you will. First and foremost, however, it will be a great, big mess.

...

Every day should be Day Day. > ]

I'll take it! Here, have one of my bad ideas in exchange: Epiphany food.

When you eat it, it's a bit tasty. When it comes out, you get a startling useful insight or idea. But only until you stand up/flush, so bring a notepad. Would the idea come back if you sit on the same pot?

It sounds like something you would feed to somebody whom you wish to teach the Joy of the Moment, eh?

OMFG.. Thats an awsome idea! What day is 'Day Day'?
I wanna mark it on my callander and when i go back to Iraq. I'll sleep that whole day and when the commander asks why i slept all day i'll tell him. "Because I'm celebrating Day Day."

See, that's why I didn't give a possible date for it. That would give it some place to stick, and I don't want to actually create a new holiday. XD

Also, I should see you some time this weekend! What time/day will you be around?
