So the itch has finally come back to write something and it’s after a couple of drinks and a friends bon voyage party that I decide to sit awake and type…
Trying to bring back to the original theme of this blog, which was getting myself to write every Friday, I have decided to cover what is being celebrated today.
Thus I turned to ye old faithful… www.checkiday.com, where they have a list of what is we are suppose to be doing this Friday. And boy… there are some weird ones today.
Lets being with: Chauvin Day
WTF? You might ask! A day named for Nicholas Chauvin, French soldier from Rochefort, France, who idolized Napoleon and who eventually became a subject of ridicule because of his blind loyalty and dedication to anything French.
So how does this relate to me? Hmmmm?
Well the only French I can think that relates to me is my second name, Toon. Apparently Toon is a variation of the French for town, meaning that my family never moved from where they settled (great…)
*My Family should have moved*
The next weird celebration is: Failure Day
And ill let you into a little secret *shush* but I secretly wrote this on Saturday and changed the posting day to the Friday, because ultimately cinema, pizza and alcohol was a much better choice for the night, therefore making me a failure for this day.
Bar far the best celebration: Lemon Meringue Pie Day
Its Lemon meringue pie day!
Lemon meringue pie is probably the best dessert on this planet and rather me giving you a recipe here is the queen of puds telling you how to make it! So go and make it!!
*Side Note* Couldn’t find Mary Berry’s video therefore you can have someone else’s video recipe (sorry, I’m not sorry.)
Apparently, its: Male Grooming Day
I must be out the loop with this one because I don’t actually use any grooming products *mainly because I can’t afford them…*, even for shaving I probably just go what my granddad did and use good old fashion soap!
And finally: National Relaxation Day!
Now, in my books everyday is National Relaxation Day! Screw living a stressful life. Don’t worry about things that you have no control over and just push them to the back of your head. If you want a nap, take a nap! If you want to drink, then drink! If you want to make bad choices that involve a whole lemon meringue pie then by god make those damn choices! Because at the end of the day if it helps you take the edge of the day, then do it!
Anyways, until next Friday,
and for one more time because I love this gif…
