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