Darren Marlar’s WEIRD HOLIDAYS – August 12, 2013

Today is PUT PEANUTS IN YOUR COKE DAY.  ***MARLAR: I know Coke is supposed to go with everything, but this is just a bit too weird for me.

Today is NATIONAL TOASTED ALMOND BAR DAY.  ***MARLAR: Hey, if you’re going so far as to put peanuts in your Coke, why not really go nuts.

Today is VINYL RECORDS DAY.  ***MARLAR: Many music-lovers believe that recorded music sounds better on vinyl rather than in digital forms like MP3… and I agree.  But it’s real hard to get vinyl records to fit inside your iPod.

Today is THE GLORIOUS TWELFTH – the beginning of the 4-month grouse hunting season in the Highlands of Scotland.  ***MARLAR: Exciting.  It’s also the beginning of the snipe-hunting season in the United States!

Today is NATIONAL MIDDLE CHILD’S DAY.  ***MARLAR: You get bonus points if your name is Jan or Peter.

WAYS TO USE THOSE OLD VINYL DISCS

Play ’em if you’ve got ’em, but if you don’t have a record player, here are some alternatives to holding a garage sale.

  • Very dangerous frisbees
  • Coasters for very large coffee mugs
  • Attractive Dinnerware
  • You can sell them to the neighborhood geeks telling them they are the “newest digital format.”
  • Skeet shooting
