This is a pretty big day. It’s the last time in ALL of our lifetimes that the date will read like this. The next time will be 1.1.(30)11. I remember so well 7.7.77 (GREAT teacher when I was 7) and 8.8.88 (surly teenager) – 9.9.99 is a bit of a blur which means I was doing what you are supposed to do in your 20s. 2000s was a wash out cos there is no 0 day or 0 month. 01.01.01 was extremely cool. I wrote as many checks as I could. It was very satisfying. 01.11.11 was when a good friend of mine had her baby. And here we are. 12.12.12. And that’s it. No more. Sad. If anyone reads posts like this in 1.1.3011 then hello I feel the same as you do now.
