Quirky Alone Day 2018 is on Wednesday, February 14, 2018: How do you remember quirky and amazing stuff ?
Wednesday, February 14, 2018 is Quirky Alone Day 2018. International Quirkyalone Day 2013--the tenth anniversary year--is ... International Quirkyalone
There's an amazing variety of mnemonic poems just for remembering days of the month:
Thirty days hath November,
April, June, and September,
February hath twenty-eight alone,
And all the rest have thirty-one.
- Richard Grafton (?-1572?)
@`Abridgement of the Chronicles of Englande'
Fourth, eleventh, ninth, and sixth,
Thirty days to each affix;
Every other thirty-one,
Except the second month alone.
Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
All the rest have thirty-one,
Excepting February alone,
Which hath but twenty-eight, in fine,
Till leap year gives it twenty-nine.
- Common in the New England states
And this curious variant of those:
Dirty days hath September,
April, June, and November.
From January to May,
The rain it raineth every day.
All the rest have thirty-one.
Without a blessed gleam of sun.
And if any of them had two-and-thirty,
They'd be just as wet and twice as dirty.
Also found these links googling for "memory" and "acronyms"
I'd list more but TANSTAAFL
Do you talk to yourself, even when you're not alone?
I talk all day long - to my husband (when he gets in from work), people in shops, my cats (yes, my cats), and myself. I say daft things too. I forget sometimes - when I'm driving (alone), if I pass some sheep/cows/pigs in a field, I'll say "aaaahhh, look at the little animals", then realise I'm alone.
People might think I too am "quirky", but so what? I'm approachable, friendly and good company.......
