11-11-11 A Big Day For Corduroy Lovers

Nov 11

Happy Veterans Day! Thank you to all the men and women who serve our country. You’re amazing. 11-11-11 is a day I have been waiting for ever since I started wishing on 11:11 because of my friend Lesley Olenik. She was (still is) so superstitious and would page me (yes we had pagers in high school and no I did not deal drugs – it was just the nineties) at 11:11 to remind me to make a wish.

Pager Talk 101:

143 = I love you

637 = always and forever

911 = not an emergency just call me really quick

911 911 = crazy stuff call me

911 911 911: real emergency

Lesley also made me aware of another pretty big thing going on in the USA today…it’s NATIONAL CORDUROY DAY! Her whole office is wearing Cords. You rock Golden Voice!

Did you know there is a Corduroy Appreciation Club? YES YES YES. It exists.

This is an excerpt from their website: 11|11|11 will be the date which most closely resembles Corduroy, EVER. Nascent plans are in development for a Cordinated international spectacular. It will be the greatest day ever.

Here is a photo from their website. It’s in the gallery section where people leave poems, songs, and artwork that is cord inspired.

corduroy_pantsDear Anonymous, Please step up and take the credit you DESERVE.

SO TODAY, GO BIG OR JUST GO HOME. And when you go out tonight wear corduroy. 143 – 637.

BTW: Corduroy is really really really hard to spell. It will go on the list my friend Saskia and I started of words that are hard to spell….right under cinnamon and thorough.

    We should definitely do a parody of the song “i love you always forever” by donna lewis using text #’s. would be a huge hit.

    also can’t spell restraunt/restaurant/restaraunt/resteraunt…..aagghhh!! Just like scrabble…always too many vowels.
    but I did win a spelling bee once. just once. and no I did not have to spell youknowwhat.

    I know I’m late to the game here but I have a corduroy joke.
    Did you hear about the new corduroy pillow?
    It’s making headlines (get it, it’s making head lines)…I crack myself up!
