According to the Holiday Insights calendar, April 21st is Kindergarten Day


From a post by homeschooling teacher Heather Woodie

April 7 is National No Housework Day. I observe that holiday pretty much every day that I'm not expecting a houseguest. Except laundry. I do that sometimes.

Okay, I don't remotely care about St. Patrick or his day, except that it's the birthday of my cat Bad Bad Leroy Brown and her six siblings.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton, seated, and Susan B. Anthony, standing. Library of Congress. I'm pretty sure they're collaborating on a zine here.

Because eff Presidents' Day. 

So my birthday is Sunday, and though my cataloging day is Monday, I imagine I'll spend at least a few birthday hours cataloging zines, cuz that's what I do.


This portrait of my cats was my birthday present from my dearest zine friend, commissioned from another zine friend
