whats going down on 08.08.08?

01 Aug

i was doing some googling to see what was happening on my smurfday this year.

i have been excited about 08.08.08 since my birthday was 08.08.88.

well since james and many many of my friends are away this year for various reasons but mostly to be at sean+doris wedding! which is tomorrow in portugal! i cant believe i am missing it 😦

so in my research i found that 08.08.08 is a magical day and that it should bring very good luck to the universe. i also found out that its a pretty popular wedding date. the one thing i knew was happening is the boredoms show were 88 drummers will perform for 88 minutes starting at 8.08pm you can read more about that on pitchfork

and on brooklyn vegan

i think the olympics begin that day too but i really couldnt care much less about that.

but i found something that is right up my alley:

everyone knows that i heart flickr big time. and it will also be the last day of my 365 at arms length,

i have been taking a pic of myself everyday for (on that day) a year.

We’re celebrating another 24 hours of Flickr on Friday, August 8, 2008!

A year ago, just over 7,000 of you shared a slice of your day from May 5, 2007. It was wonderful to see the similarities (weddings, birthdays, graduations, Cinco de Mayo celebrations, etc.) and differences across the flickrverse.

We’re going to celebrate another 24 hours of Flickr — Flickr 888. Take a photo anytime when it’s August 8th where you are, then share it in the group.

There’s more! Our cool friends at MOO are going to create unique Flickr 888 Postcard Packs that will be available early this fall. So, mark your calendars and save the date for another 24 hours of Flickr, Friday August 8, 2008.
