Sunday: Hili dialogue

Welcome to Ceiling Cat’s Day: a day to rest, read, eat, and enjoy your favorite libation. It’s Sunday, October 25, 2020, and National Greasy Food Day. (You didn’t hear that from me.) It’s also World Pasta Day, Pumpkin Day, Sourest Day, apparently honoring sour sweets, and World Pizza Maker’s Day (oy, could I use a […]

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 […]

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. […]

Thursday: Hili dialogue

Good morning on Thursday, September 17, 2020, National Apple Dumpling Day. (I like mine with cream or vanilla ice cream: is that a meme that’s parasitized my mind?) If you’re near a Moe’s restaurant, it’s Free Queso Day: they’re giving out six ounces of queso to thank their customers.  It’s also National Monte Cristo Day—not […]

Wednesday: Hili dialogue

Top of the morning and middle of the week to you: it’s Wednesday, September 16, 2020, and Peach Pie Day. You’ll be lucky if you get some this week!  It’s also National Guacamole Day, National Cinnamon Raisin Bread Day, World Play-Doh Day, National Collect Rocks Day, and Mexican Independence Day (“Cry of Dolores“; see below). […]

Monday: Hili dialogue

It’s the start of another damn work week: Monday, September  14, 2020: National Cream-Filled Doughnut Day. (I must admit a weakness for Dunkin Donut’s Boston Creme donut, which I get in a pair with the double chocolate donut.) It’s also Eat a Hoagie Day (for non-Americans, hoagies are big “submarine sandwiches”; the term is used […]

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 […]

Monday: Hili dialogue

Good morning! It’s Labor Day, Monday, September 7, 2020 (a holiday in the U.S., and it’s National Beer Lover’s Day, again with an apostrophe implying that only one beer lover is being feted. It’s also National Salami Day (goes well with beer), National Acorn Squash Day (doesn’t go well with anything), and Grandma Moses Day, […]
