I’ve Got A Date

English: 19th century cartoon of a rabid dog in a London street (Photo credit: Wikipedia) This has nothing to do with dates but I couldn’t find a free cartoon on the subject so I went with rabies instead.

With a dentist at the hospital today so I wasn’t going to blog; but my good friend Dave (a statistician and therefore number geek upon whom I can rely in these matters) informs me that at some point – well, at an actual point – today it will be 11/12/13 14:15.

In its honour, I will schedule this post for 2:15.

Happy Number Day!


Dave and I really have too much time on our hands, don’t we?*

*I wish.


As  I was writing this, Tory Boy informed me that today is the last sequential date of this century.  

Can that be right?  Dave?

    • Had to cancel – coughing my guts out made him nervous about his fingers…well, it would have if I’d got as far as his chair.

    I read about today being the last sequential date of the century as well… QI tweeted it. And if QI says it it must be true!

    Good luck with your next appointment with the dentist, I see that you had to cancel because you can’t stop coughing. I hope that you feel better, you poor thing. hugs. 🙂

    If you become an American for a day in one years time…. you could get away with writing the date and time in order again 12/13/14 15:16 😉


  7. Tory boy has been listening to those pinko professors. Dianne
    The only other combination would have to start with a 12 (December) with the day as 13 and the year 14 (this year. if you use military time you could get a 15:16…I think.

    It fascinates me how such things happen with dates. not ones to dentists – I try to avoid those ones (even though I make my children go)….but the calendar/clock. There’s something about this August 2014 too: 5 Sundays, 5 Saturdays, 5 full weeks – apparently it happens very rarely.

    hope you feel better.


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.
