December 15, 2013: I’m all for cupcakes of all kinds (except peach, seriously, the cupcake food truck comes around and the only gluten-free choice they have is peach, which is an abomination), but I think that National Lemon Cupcake Day might be taking it a bit too far. Are we going to have holidays celebrating every possible cupcake flavor (except peach)?
Cat Herders Day isn’t really about cats (although it should be, since everything should always be about cats) — it’s about honoring those who try to take on challenging or impossible tasks. Although while we’re on the subject of cats, why not consider adopting a cat or dog from your local SPCA or Humane Society, especially an adult? We just got the most loving, happy cat from our local SPCA, and were stunned that she’d been at the shelter for six months. She’s not even three years old yet, but was passed over time and again by people who wanted the kittens. Their loss is our gain!
