Mystery Object Hunt (September 11-17)

Did you know that September is Happy Cat Month? A cause for celebration if ever there was one!


Monday 11 September – No News is Good News Day

With all this stressful news of war and climate change and Trump and the general election (please vote), it’s important to clear the mind with a news-free day of zero depressing headlines flashing at you from every direction.


Tuesday 12 September – Video Games Day

I’m still here playing minesweeper, but by all means, feel free to play video games to your heart’s content today.


Wednesday 13 September – Defy Superstition Day

Today, we rebel! Stride beneath ladders. Open your umbrella indoors. Don’t touch something wooden when you proclaim your luck thus far in life.


Thursday 14 September – Gobstopper Day

Wow, throwback! Try not to break your mouth.


Friday 15 September – Hug Your Boss Day

I do wonder what unemployed students are to do on this day – maybe shower Harlene Hayne with some love.


Saturday 16 September – Collect Rocks Day

As if we don’t already do this on a day-to-day basis. (Hint – using paint to create new rock friends for yourself is more effective than using markers!)


Sunday 17 September – Locate an Old Friend Day

Maintain a clear distinction between ‘locating’ and ‘stalking’ for today’s task – if I hear of a rise in restraining orders or I walk past people lurking in others’ back gardens, I take no responsibility.
