Happy 09/09/09!

Yahoo! News had a great article yesterday about what makes 09/09/09 such a special day (read it here.)

Did you know...?

· 09/09/09 represents the last set of repeating, single-digit dates that we'll see for almost a century (until January 1, 2101), or a millennium (mark your calendars for January 1, 3001), depending on how you want to count it.

· Apple held back its traditional Tuesday release until today.

· Lots of folks are taking advantage of the special numerical anomaly and getting hitched today (and congrats are in order if you're one of the luckies!)

Some cultures think it's lucky, some auspicious. Me? I think it's really cool. Clearly, having chosen Friday the 13th as my wedding date, I'm not one for negative superstitions :)

With this unique day in front of us, what are you doing to make it memorable? Eat an ice cream sunday with 9 toppings? Run 9 laps around the track? Run out to buy The Beatles Rock Band? Go to the movies to see 9 (which, incidentally, is a Tim Burton animation extravaganza about the post-apocalyptic world and looks pretty amazing)?

Personally, I think I'll aim for 9 minutes of the 30-day Shred, 9 cupcakes and 9 Diet Cokes.
(Well, at least I'll think about that 9 times...)
