Today in obscure holidays: Pick Strawberries Day!
A result of a an image search on < punk rock strawberry shortcake >, this photo is of One-Eyed Doll, a band "Described as Strawberry Shortcake meets Gwar and Valentine's Day meets Halloween with the visual impact of Japanese Anime."
It's Fatigue Syndrome Day--very appropriate for a day that started with an all-staff meeting at 9am.

Lots of zines were purchased but none bought this week because I spoke and tabled at the Brooklyn Zine Fest.
According to the Holiday Insights calendar, April 21st is Kindergarten Day.

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.
