Nerd New Year 11/11/11

It’s amazing what a set of numbers can do!

For numerologists, our entire being is based in number patterns, and landing the #11 is highly auspicious. It, along with the number 22 are known as Master numbers. I checked my family’s birthdays to see if anyone came out as an 11, and I was kinda intrigued with the results. Me and my DH are 7 and 8 respectively, my brother and DH’s brother are both 11s.

So when you have 11/11/11, you’re day is TOTALLY ON (did you catch the bad joke?). And because most geeks sleep in until noon (’cause we’re usually up until 5AM), 11:11PM is apparently our “New Year” tomorrow according to a group of hackers in Redwood City, CA (aka Silicone Valley).

Thursday, November 11, 2011 is still a busy day for me. In the morning I’ll be shopping, at 12 I’ll be in a twitter party, and then I’ll be collecting a bunch of samples and great deals at the National Women’s Show.

I have such a tough job. 😉
