one of my favorite habits is my penchant for leaving myself reminders. there is no event/idea/item too insignificant that i won't mark it down to remember it for a later/fitting time. it's both highly useful, and on occasion, wildly entertaining. in the old days, i used my outlook calendar for such purposes - these days, it's my blackberry. i fear its little indicator light is going to burn out soon, given the number of time a day it flashes. from interviews to picking up the dry cleaning to the lyrics from a song heard in a bar that i want to remember to download the next morning when i'm home - little escapes a place on my calendar.
so just before i happened to receive my most exciting reminder EVER. ever ever. in all of my 29 years of calendars and datebooks and post-its and scraps of paper and pop-up windows.
i know, you ask - how exciting can one reminder be?
velociraptor awareness day! i have no idea when i typed that into my phone, because i had completely forgotten the holiday even existed...but here it was, appearing on my calendar and completely making my day.
the holiday is tomorrow, by the way. (and is also being celebrated on saturday, according to its facebook event page) i imagine i set my phone a day in advance so i had time to alert my dear readers to it.
P.S. for those of you subscribing to time warner cable - jurassic park is currently on demand. coincidence? i think not. we all know how loveandcyanide is spending the next two days.
