Nueve Mágico

Welcome to September 9th, 2009, a day which will be forever remembered as 09/09/09

Beatles Rockband

Take your pick of major events happening today – everything from the release of The Beatles: Rock Band (a date chosen as an obvious homage) to a major “rock and roll” event for Apple in San Francisco to the theatrical release of the movie “9” to A Day Without Cats on the Internet (and, yes, you did read that correctly).

Why all the hubbub?  LiveScience contributor Heather Whipps takes on the task of explaining “Why 09/09/09 Is So Special”, noting that today is “the last set of repeating, single-digit dates that we’ll see for almost a century (until January 1, 2101), or a millennium (mark your calendars for January 1, 3001), depending on how you want to count it.”

Whipps also discusses the beliefs of “modern numerologists” and the special rank that they give to the number nine – as do the Chinese and Japanese, though for much different reasons.

Magical or not, I’ll find some way to commemorate the date.  Perhaps nine hours, nine minutes, & nine seconds of meditation – nope, too hard.  Nine 9-lb curls? – yep, that I can pull off.  Ninety-nine consecutive viewings of the 99 Luftballons video?  Hmmm…

You get the point.  At least nine times over.  Enjoy today’s last of a lifetime event.
