Just a quick note

I'm fairly busy with life at the moment, so it's only very light blogging. Next week I'll be going to Budapest for a few days, so don't expect anything from my side until I return.

Anyway. I just wanted to point out something. Given the fact that Europeans write dates in the order day-month-year, today's date is 07/08/09 in Europe. This is the fifth last ascending date order we'll experience here (the others being 08/09/10, 09/10/11, 10/11/12, 11/12/13).

Since Americans have the order month-day-year, they still have five such dates left (12/13/14 as well as the ones mentioned above).

There are of course also some descending date orders left - 11/10/09, 12/11/10, and 13/12/11 (only in Europe).

If one was into woo, one could probably make a lot out of this.

My daughter was born on (Euro date format) 10-09-08. I'm not into woo, but I it is terribly convenient because, having grown up with the American date format, I would otherwise have a hard time remembering her CPR number. (Yes, I have to think way too hard to remember my own!)
