Happy 12/12/12!

I decided to save my one-hundredth post for 12/12/12.  It is such a cool date.  I wore the number 12 when I played soccer in high school so the number has always had a special meaning to me.  It is even more special considering we won't see another repetitive date until January 1, 2101.  I hope my kids will be able to see it but I know I won't so I am enjoying the day.

There has been quite a few cool things posted about today that I thought I'd share some links.  Mental Floss had been posting lists of 12 things every hour all day long.  Here are my favorite ones:
12 Terrible Pieces of Advice for Pregnant Women
12 Mind Blowing Number Systems from Other Languages
12 Fascinating Moments in Winter Clothing History
12 Star Trek Gadgets That Now Exist

Even CNN had something to say about 12/12/12.  Here is a great article about "Odd Facts about 12/12/12."

I always thought it would be cool to be born on a day like today.  There is a website that you can go to determine if your birthdate (or any day for that matter) has any sort of "pattern."  The website contains a "date pattern calculator."  It is just my luck that my birthdate has no pattern!  Oh well...

I hope you all enjoyed 12/12/12!
