"The Day of the Nines"
Today is September 9, 2009, or... 9/9/09. This is the 252nd day of the year, and 252 (2+5+2) adds up to 9. Today is also the last set of repeating, single-digit dates for quite a while -- 92 years to be precise (until January 1, 2101). It's also nine days until I go up north to visit Kelli! Whoohooo!
And if that's not enough nines for you, today falls on a Wednesday, and both "Wednesday" and "September" have nine letters. Significant? No. But fun!
Ah, numbers. Such fascinating little digits!
