April 29, 2014: It’s National Shrimp Scampi Day, and here I must confess; when I hear “scampi”, my brain turns it into “scamper”. Every time. So it’s appropriate that this is a fast-moving shrimp for International Dance Day. (Jazz legs! Jazz legs!) Sadly, even though this is a UN holiday, there isn’t a dry, dull page to read at the UN website. I’ll give you the Wikipedia page instead.
Last but not least, today is One Day Without Shoes, a day to take off your shoes to raise awareness for children’s health and education. Toms don’t work for my feet, but I can’t find much to hate on in their mission.
