Yesterday was Chocolate Day, according to my AOL Calendar's Wacky Holidays.  Unfortunately my family, knowing how important this celebration is to me... chose not to celebrate it.  I was somewhat pacified by a viewing of Dead Man's Chest with Johnny Depp (who is actually 'eye candy'), and a satisfying lunch at Albertaco's (best Mexican food this side of the border), Rocky did share her Kit Kat bar she bought with money she borrowed from me, and Becca bought me a Mounds bar the day before, but I still felt disappointed in not truly observing the most delectable holiday on the calendar.

Until I pulled up a link of Bizarre Holidays and found that every month has a Chocolate holiday of some sort, and National Milk Chocolate Day is actually just a couple of weeks away!  Woo hoo!  There are also many other wonderful holidays coming up.  For instance today is National Video Game, and tomorrow is National Sugar Cookie Day.  Here is a list of what is still in store for the rest of the month.

July 29 is . . . . Cheese Sacrifice Purchase Day

July 30 is . . . . National Cheesecake Day

Being as I'm not much of a video game player I think I'll skip today's holiday in favor of baking some sugar cookies for tomorrow's celebration.

Thanks for sharing that list!  My son is celebrating Video Game day right now.  DAMN!  I didn't get out to see Dead Man's Chest last night!  That's what I should have done.  I could have gone to a midnight showing of it!  Rats!!
Have a great day!

Shouldn't we just skip National Nude day?  And National Sugar Cookie day, why not do that one in December near Christmas?  Why didn't anyone consult me on these issues?
