9-9-9

Hey! Its September 9, 2009! Woo! Here are some random facts on good ol’ number nine:

-999 is the emergency number you dial in the UK and is the world’s oldest emergency call service.

-Digitally remastered versions of all the Beatles albums will be released today, along with artwork and fancy booklets.

-The number 9 is revered in Hinduism and considered a complete, perfected and divine number because it represents the end of a cycle in the decimal system, which originated from the Indian subcontinent as early as 3000 BC.

-Nine is a significant number in Norse Mythology. Odin hung himself on an ash tree for nine days to learn the runes.

-In many south Asian countries, the number nine is said to be a Kannan (Mannish-Woman) number which means it represents men who are womanly or act womanly. (Like Emily Howard!)

September 9 is the 252nd day of the year (253rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 113 days remaining until the end of the year.

-Today is the day that the animated movie ‘9’ opens. It looks good and I think I’ll go and see it. Speaking of nine, I STILL haven’t seen ‘District Nine’. I better haul ass and watch it before its replaced with another Rob Schneider/Wayan Bros/Hannah Montana/Twilight abomination in the theatres.

-Nine (九 pinyin jiu) is considered a good number in Chinese culture because it sounds the same as the word “longlasting” (久 pinyin jiu).

-I’ll be turning 29 in December! (One step closer to 30. *sighs*)

    29 is a pretty awesome age. So is 30 for that matter!

    You’ll have to let us know if you liked the movie 9. I’m a bit curious to know if it’s any good.

    Marie-I hope you’re right. About the turning older thing. Yeah, I’m curious about ‘9’ too, since I am big on animated films. I don’t think I’ll be seeing it today though. (Too tired!)
