October 14, 2013: Well, this is certainly a busy day! I figured I could safely skip Columbus Day today, because Matthew Inman at The Oatmeal clearly has that holiday covered. I think it’s delightful that Thanksgiving in Canada matches up with Dessert Day; I’m not entirely sure if pumpkin pie is a staple of their celebration as much as it is here in the US, so I added a cupcake just to cover all of my bases. This particular Canadian fellow is definitely participating in Be Bald and Free Day; comb-overs and toupees aren’t fooling anyone. Be like the cool kids, and rock the chrome!
Kick Butt Day is supposed to be for kicking your own butt, for things you want to do but haven’t done yet. But I figured that since this is Spider-Man Day (celebrating Peter Parker’s birthday, as opposed to the August 1 Spider-Man Day, which commemorates Spidey’s first appearance in print back in 1962), that he should have the honor of kicking this happy, bald, dessert-loving, thankful Canadian’s butt.
