Then watch everybody go crazy, twice, at 11:11 AM *and* PM!
Bring out the streamers and your party favors - it's celebration time!!
Whoo and indeed hoo!!
One day you can tell your grandchildren, or the kids of strangers that you meet in the park, before somebody calls the cops because you're extra creepy, that you were there on that 1/11/11 day and you saw what happened!!
All of those astonishing events that they will be reading about in the textbooks that are downloaded directly into their brains, you were there for them!
One of those important milestones is of course the last day to vote in the Week 8 poll. Which means YOU and only you (and maybe that person over there. But they look kind of shady, so you better not rely on them) can keep your favorites in for another week: http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/410651.html
So if you have any last minute exclamations/recs of entries that are not getting anywhere near the attention you personally feel they *should* be getting, today would be the day to make those.
It's also the first deadline for The Second Chance Idol folks: http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/410917.html So if you are signed up for that, make sure to get your entry in. After all, there is no "Third Chance Idol"!
It is also the day that "that thing" happened. I can't tell you about it. Because I read about it from that time traveler who stopped by a couple years ago.
But apparently today is when it happens. I don't think any one realizes how important and life changing it was for a few years though. But when you look back, it's pretty clear that it all started today.
I kind of wish that I hadn't killed that guy and dumped that blue police box in abandoned quarry now. I could have "coerced" some more information out of him. Oh well, I got this nice screwdriver out of the deal at any rate.
Happy 1/11/11 to you!
