Who... makes this stuff up? C'mon now, really... National Cheese Doodle day? Really?!! Oh, and what about March 30th, ummm, no, not goin' there.

But... I will celebrate National Chocolate Caramel Day with some Turtles, yum!

Kel, for your birthday I'm getting you a bag of Cheese Doodles to celebrate!


  1. Hahaha! Yum!! I'm sure I'll eat them ;)

  2. Believe it or not, these days are actually announced each day in Congress and have a page each year in the federal regulations. I used to work for a food and drug law firm in D.C.

    Once one gets a day, you have to do it for all! I can't celebrate "Turkey Neck Soup Day" this year—prior commitment. ;o)

  3. Chip & Dip Day? Oh Yeah! Does that mean I can gorge myself on my favorite snack all day & celebrate about it? Life is good...

  4. Oh no! My bday is March 30th! Why couldn't it be something chocolatey?! Oh well, I will just have to enjoy Chocolate Caramel Day on March 19th. =)

  5. i think it's totally appropriate that kel's bday is cheese doodle day. she's always been a fan of cheetos...yum! ;-)
