Isn't Leap Year a peculiar thing? I know, it's a pragmatic solution trying to fit the Earth's rhythms into our own need for regularity, but if we are going to have an extra day every four years, shouldn't it be a day we can spend as we please?
Wherefore, I propose an international floating Leap Year holiday, to be celebrated by each at a time of his/her convenience, in a manner of personal choice. Is there a second?
I think I'm celebrating today, by not requiring myself to seriously dive into the next big work thing just yet. I may blow part of the day with some random cleaning of the drawers and office, but only until that becomes tiresome, thus scoring some virtue points while still winding down from last week.
In antiwhines, we had a wonderful surprise birthday party for my nearby cousin this weekend! Very fun, lots of family + friends, ages 2 months to 73 years. The bossy cousin-in-law was not bossy -- yay! The clan unobtrusively but dedicatedly administered hugs and cheer to a 9 year old cousin after some older girls said mean things to her -- plus we found the fancy cupcakes, so everything was all better.
How are you celebrating Leap Year? What else is going on?
