1.12.11

1 Dec

 

Another interesting date. 

Yawn. 

The year’s been full of them; I’ve done them to death.  What more is there to say?  11211 is:

  • A zip code from Brooklyn.
  • A palindrome.
  • A comprehensive guide to over fifty bars and lounges in Williamsburg.
  • A media management company.
  • A binary number?  Possibly.  I started a Google search but fell asleep before I’d even reached a third of the way down the list.  Like a driver who can’t fix a car, I don’t need to know how it works to show me how beautiful it is.

Instead, how about something that’s happening on this date?

If you are in the Manchester area tonight, there’s free entry to a poetry book launch.  I have a poem in it (no disinterested promotions on this blog, maties) but I won’t be there, for various reasons, one of which is the fact that I still haven’t bought new shoes after the horror of getting to the launch of last year’s anthology.

Best of Manchester Poets Vol2 Launch

    I have visions of you with a turban, pouring over your numerology chart. Okay. I don’t. But wouldn’t that be a hoot? 😉

      Numerology…? A hoot, yes; because I couldn’t take it seriously 🙂

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
