Presidents Day

Happy Presidents Day!
The most exciting, spectacular, fantastical holiday of the year!
...What?! You don't know how to celebrate Presidents day?
Well then... I'll give you a few of my tips!
Step 1- Wear a beard ( preferably brown like Lincoln's ) Don't have a beard? Grow one!
Step 2- Go out to dinner and pay the whole check with dollar bills! The waiter may look pissed off but they're secretly celebrating on the inside.
Step 3- pick up a random baby and kiss it!
Keith
Step 4- Tell the truth all day just like good ol' honest Abe... even if the truth hurts and makes your friends want to punch you.
Ahhhh, I didn't think this day could get any more magical but then it snowed. It's a Presidents Day miracle!

if only we had a presidents day in the U.K.! the beginning of the year could do with a few more holidays.

Oh god. Pick up a random baby and kiss it? NOT a good idea.If you know the baby and his/her mother, sure. If you don't and it's truly a random baby you don't know...bad bad bad idea.

while I was having a conversation with my 4 year old this morning about some of our presidents, he said, "and do you know there is a president named Teddy, he made all the teddy bears in the world, very important guy." btw, your blog makes me smile - thank you.

I love posting on people's blogs. I don't know why, I just do.

I like your images, color, and pithiness, but the kid is a kid, not quite a baby, and anonymous is right on..... no touchy the baby (er kid).

I feel like I saw you or an extreme look a like on the L train around 8 tonight, I stared like a creep-o in a ridiculous faux fur coat & thought it was you, trying to get the courage to tell you in person HOW MUCH I LOVE YOUR BLOG, WORK, & PASSION FOR COLOR & what an inspiration you are!! Either way if it was you or not, this message is now just as creepy as I may have been in person....COOL! xo

manthe said...

How did I miss this post? THE funniest thing I've read in awhile, and with Presidents day becoming 'so commercial' these days it is nice to get back to the spirit behind the holiday :-)
I'm pretty sure you would be the type of friend that would make me laugh so hard milk would come out of my nose
:-) And as most people know, they are the best-est!
