What day is it again?

So funny thing happened this morning. When I woke up, there was some story on the radio or on tv about superstitions. So somewhere in my sleep deprived mind, I decided that it meant it was Friday the 13th! So, I come in and start talking about superstitions with our Curt from the Transit team...unbeknownst to me, it's actually Friday, April 20th. Priceless. Nancy finally called at 5:25 am to ask if I'd had my coffee yet. Ha! I hadn't. We had a great laugh about it.
I got this e-mail that has all these interesting things you didn't know you could do with household items. For instance, you can turn a toaster on it's side and make a grilled cheese sandwich? I seem to recall that I tried something similar without turning the toaster sideways, when I was kid...not good results. :)
I dare say I'm the greenest person in the office. I'm the one who likes to pull paper out of the trash and put it in the recycle bin. So for Earth Day, I plan to step it up in small ways. Here's a great site about little changes that you can make for Earth day. The Earth Day Network is hosting “A Billion Acts of Green” this year. The goal is to register one billion environmentally friendly actions in advance of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development happening in Rio de Janeiro in June. At the Rio de Janeiro event, The Earth Day Network will face world leaders to demonstrate that people are willing to stand up and be counted. You can register an act of green at earthday.org. For instance, using reusable grocery bags is an eco-friendly pledge and an act that costs very little and saves so much. So far, almost 980 million acts have been registered at the website, so A Billion Acts of Green is well on the way. The first Earth Day was on April 22, 1970.
