Square Root Day?

3/3/9 

Hm. Well 3 x 3 = 9.  So the square root of nine would be three. But it's a bit of a stretch to call it Square Root Day. After all, the year is two thousand and nine A.D. 

If Hallmark comes out with a card, I'm going to begin an international protest. But as long as Hallmark stays out of it, I'm as willing to celebrate a fake holiday as the next person. Behold "my" creation!

And in the spirit of the day I'll even do a little advance planning for a year that is actually a square number: 2025 (square root = 45). Let's all get excited on the 45th day of 2025. OK, friends, pencil it in. February 14, 2025. And I've found the perfect location for our celebration. Bring your sweetheart! Who's in?

Shoot, I'll go to anything they celebrate at Ghirardelli square. I should be there just in time to qualify for a senior citizen's discount, which is a total bonus.

It isn't as great as it looks esp when your boyfriend is standing on the sidewalk considering it as the spot for his imminent proposal. (He finally decided on the lawn up at Coit Tower--very romantic with the Bay Bridge on one side and the Golden Gate in the other and what with the fact that Clint Eastwood filmed a scene from a Dirty Harry movie right there).
