November 17, 2013: OMG, it’s a double-geek week! First Star Trek for Whoopi Goldberg’s Birthday, and now Star Wars for Wookiee Life Day! Did you know that Life Day was originally supposed to be an analogue for Thanksgiving? Because of the “Star Wars Holiday Special” name, most people think it’s a Christmas-type holiday. [Pushing glasses up nose] Now you know. And knowing is half the battle. So laugh it up, fuzzballs, and have a lovely Life Day!
Homemade Bread Day celebrates the best kind of bread — fresh, hot, without chemicals or preservatives. I may have to break my sourdough starter out of the freezer and whip some up for friends.
