10/10/10 - A Slice of Life

That bowl of oatmeal was good! I'm sipping some coffee now and realized that I haven't posted for several days. But today is October 10, 2010 or 10/10/10! And I wanted to mention the day.

I've written before about how numbers fascinate me even though I've never been a fan of math. I Googled "10 10 10" and found a cool website welcoming me to Day 10/10/10.

It's really interesting seeing what today's date means to people by reading the comments. A day that is meaningless to one person is another's anniversary or birthday. Here are a few below with some edits for grammar.

I'm intrigued with such dates where there is such significance. 10-10-10 wasn't a big one for me in any way though... LOL! Happy Week, Anali :o) ((HUGS))
