Happy Longerdays!


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

This Saturday. Make ready the candles and the Yule log. Let the feasting and celebrating begin.  :D

Yup, the shortest day of the year,  and then each day gets lighter a little sooner.

Happy Solstice, happy longerdays!! And I can't seem to find my Tarot cards, dang!

Sad Solstice for the southern hemisphere, I saw a picture of Sydney and you could barely make out the outline of the Opera House.

What shall we do to celebrate Longerdays? I have a little quiz for you:

What is one thing you've never done before that you would like to do in 2020, at least once?
2020 is a leap year. What special thing will you do on Saturday, February 29, 2020?
How will you celebrate the return of the light?
What will you change in 2020?
What did you do in 2010 that you want to do again in 2020?

No written answers necessary. . . just ponder these questions!
Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

Nice set of questions. Thanks for posing them!

Not directly related, but since you bring up Leap Year, I'm glad 2020 will turn this year's awkwardly mid-week Christmas and New Years Day into convenient weekend or weekend-adjacent holidays for the next four years.

Got that right! Of course, my employer gives us Christmas Day off, but then this year we are also getting Decmeber 26, Thursday, as a holiday. So, what, they actually expect people to go in and work one day, Friday, and then be off again for a weekend? (Not me--I saved up enough Paid Time Off. I don't go back to work till January 2.) Weird.
