Friday: Hili dialogue

It’s already the end of the “work” week: Friday, September 25, 2020: National Lobster Day. Instead of eating one, let’s learn its scientific name: the American lobster (one of many species called “lobster”) is Homarus americanus. It’s also National Crab Meat Newburg Day, German Butterbrot Day (it’s just bread and butter auf Deutsch), National Quesadilla Day, National […]

Thursday: Hili dialogue (and Kulka monologue)

Good morning as we rush toward the “weekend”: it’s September 24, 2020, and National Cherries Jubilee Day, a dessert I’ve never had. It’s also Gallbladder Good Health Day (?), National Punctuation Day, Kiss Day (severe restrictions this year), and National Bluebird of Happiness Day, which prompts me to violate protocol and post this classic Gary […]

Wednesday: Hili dialogue

It’s Hump Day: Wednesday, September 23, 2020, and National Pancake Day. I could use one, as I haven’t had a flapjack in ages (make mine blueberry buckwheat with real maple syrup). Another thing I haven’t had is a good pot pie, celebrated today during National Great American Pot Pie Day. It’s also National Snack Stick […]

Tuesday: Hili dialogue

Welcome to the Cruelest Day: Tuesday, and it’s September 22, 2020: the day of the autumnal equinox, otherwise known as the first day of Fall. It starts at 8:30 a.m. Chicago time, just two hours from this posting. In the southern hemisphere, of course, it’s the vernal equinox. Yes, summer is over here, and it […]

Monday: Hili dialogue

Good morning at the start of what promises to be another lousy week of this curséd year:  it’s Monday, September 21,. 2020. I am deeply dispirited with all the bad news and the promise (?) of a long, miserable, and isolated fall and winter, with nothing good in the offing. Posting may be light today. […]

Saturday: Hili dialogue

It’s Caturday: September 19, 2020, and National Butterscotch Pudding Day. It’s also International Eat an Apple Day, International Red Panda Day, National Gymnastics Day, and (ayyyyye!) International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Kiss the […]

Tuesday: Hili dialogue

‘Tis the cruelest day of the week: Tuesday, and September 15, 2020. It’s National Linguine Day:  make mine with clams and lots of garlic, olive oil, and parsley. It’s also National Cheese Toast Day, National Double Cheeseburger Day, National Crème de Menthe Day, Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie Day (WTF?), Greenpeace Day (see below), Day, and […]

Sunday: Hili dialogue

It’s Ceiling Cat’s Day: September 13, 2020. Remember, cats weren’t made for the Sabbath; the Sabbath was made for cats. It’s National Peanut Day, as well as  International Chocolate Day, Snack a Pickle Day, Bald is Beautiful Day, National Defy Superstition Day, and, in Africa, the UK, and Latin America, Roald Dahl Day. It’s also Fortune […]

Saturday: Hili dialogue (and Leon monologue)

We’re into the weekend, and fall is coming on strong, as: it’s Saturday, September 12, 2020, National Chocolate Milkshake Day. It’s also International Drive Your Studebaker Day (does anybody have one?), National Iguana Awareness Day, Aunt’s Day (which aunt?), Video Games Day, and National Day of Encouragement, whatever that’s for. News of the Day: Don’t […]
