Things I Noticed, Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Filed under: Entertainment — CPav @ 9:02 pm

Today is Tuesday, February 10, the birthday of English poet and essayist Charles Lamb and the 50th anniversary of the legendary 1959 St. Louis tornado and the 20th anniversary of the death of Dan Kelly, who introduced a generation of St. Louisans to hockey.  It’s sponsored by the word “karimption”, a party; a set of people, a crowd, implying unity, relationship, or nationality.

Here’s what I noticed today:

  • Thank goodness.  Esquire online says it’s okay to wear a rumpled shirt.  Who knew I was a fashion trendsetter all this time?
  • Slate magazine lists their Top 10 court cases pursued by the Bush administration that the Obama administration should revisit.
  • PetSmart and Hill’s (a pet food manufacturer) are sponsoring the “Second Chance for Love” adoption event this weekend.  Details at the link don’t include the fact that the rescue that adopts out the most pets over the three-day event will receive a sizable cash prize, so if you’re in the St. Louis area and thinking about adding a puppy to your family this Valentine’s Day, please stop by the Mostly Mutts area at the Chesterfield PetSmart.  We’ll have a number of older dogs (moms whose babies have been weened) for adoption as well.  You can take a look at the Mostly Mutts web site for a preview of our adoptable pets.
  • A great blog started three weeks ago.  The Beatles Complete on Ukulele aims to present, well, the complete works of the Beatles (185 original compositions), one a week, as played on ukulele, with guest artists and an accompanying essay each week.

  1. Say, I’m starting to think you have the same Forgotten English daily calendar I do, sitting on my desk at work… It gets people to come over and talk to me.

    • I do indeed. Of course, nothing would make my co workers come talk to me.
