I am now picturing Ken at Godiva Chocolate, dressed as Francois recommending various bonbons... and it is glorious.

And...

Nope, just brandied fruit.

Mother in Law Day (see, it is already starting)

American Beer Day (and weak beer)

Family Stories Month (ours frequently involve diabetes and aviation)

Gratitude Month (be glad your family stories don't)

Movember (no idea, possibly involves moving)

Adoption Month (someone new to tell family stories)

Native American Heritage Month (in Ohio, even the tribal Indians were immigrants)

Peanut Butter Lovers Month (I wouldn't say love so much as "obsessive toxic on again/off again relationship)

And...

Novel Writing Month (every day you don't finish your novel, Stephanie Meyer is better than you)

On to today:

Author's Day (yes Mark, today is ALL ABOUT YOU)

Brush Day (I prefer a paint brush but those around me encourage I use a hair brush)

Calzone Day (it is a folded up pizza)

Cook for Your Pets Day (hint, they, like your kids, do not want brocolli)

Deep Fried Clams Day (also not good for the dog)

Family Literacy Day (Mark, now you have two excuses to make the kids read your book)

Jersey Friday (ok, this either requires a fake tan and irresponsible drinking OR wearing your team's shirt. Play it safe and do both. warning, that team shirt will cost you at least 80 bucks)

And...

Vinegar Day (also not a favorite of your pets)

Bison Day (totally different from a buffalo...or so I was told)

Job Action Day (go to your job and do...something)

Nachos Day (another solution for stress but they will clog your sax)

* "soulution" was an auto correct that I opted to leave in...it isn't even a word, why is it an autocorrect?
