June 6th Turtle Races Day

June 6th Turtle Races Day

If you’ve got nothing to do for a couple of hours you might want to attend a turtle race. I imagine you can place bets and cheer them on as they go but I am not sure what you study in order to pick the favorite. Turtles can actually move pretty quickly when they want to; they normally just don’t want to. You also need to determine whether you turtle is a tortoise or a turtle. A tortoise does well on land, a turtle does well in the water. You may want to determine which you have before you start racing them! Turtle Races Day is always the first Saturday in June so the date does vary.

How to celebrate – Find a turtle race in your area. Create a turtle race in your area. Find a good book to read as you wait for the race to conclude.

August 28th Race Your Mouse Day

This is an odd day, maybe that’s why Wellcat.com copyrighted it. Who knows. The idea of today is to race against the mouse on your computer to see if you can beat it to where ever it is that you are going. I’m not really sure that it possible but if you have absolutely nothing else to do, try it! Or, if you happen to have a pet mouse, or even a mouse that’s not a pet, see if you can beat it to where it is going. That will be difficult because mice don’t often keep to a course if they know there is a person around. It’s all about the cheese! So there you have it, race the mouse on your computer or find a mouse in your house, yard or where ever, and race it to where ever it is going.

How to celebrate – Race your computer mouse. Race a real life mouse. Find something better to do like, take a nap!

August 28th Race Your Mouse Day

Okay, so I am sort of getting use to useless days, but I guess they can be fun… or at least sort of if you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to do to celebrate them. Or even why they exist at all. Most seem to come from a company called Wellcat.com, which makes a profit on these days but for the life of me, I can’t figure out how.

I am not downing them, they must be doing well, at least for cats, but what the heck is race your mouse day? I mean, is it a computer thing, do you keep pet mice, do you torture a mouse by letting your cat chase it? No one seems to know… and frankly, I don’t think anyone really cares.

If it is a computer thing, you can’t win so what’s the point of playing? And if it’s an animal thing it isn’t going to end up pretty however it ends. So just what do you do to celebrate something either impossible or gross?

So I’ve been thinking about it. What can one do to race a mouse? And why would one even want to race a mouse? Does the mouse know if it wins? Does the mouse care? I think, however, I may have come up with an answer….

august - race your mouse

Race Mickey Mouse at Disney! I know he isn’t yours and I know that it will cost you several hundred dollars just to get in and see Mickey. (Maybe Wellcat gets a percentage of that!)  Either way, if you aren’t thrown out of the park afterwards you can at least spend the day enjoying the rides and sights.

How to celebrate – You tell me!?! Go to Disney. Get a life.
